TAG Aviation offers a good career move for a personable, independent cabin services manager Soar to new heights with this unique chance to work with private jets. TAG Aviation, an international, diverse group of companies which provides services to business jet owners is looking for a cabin services manager. 'It's a good career move because it's a management position in a big company,' said Jolie Howard, director of business development, TAG Aviation, Asia. 'We are a leader in terms of quality and reputation in our field of business aviation. [The company is] going through a big expansion, so there is no limit to how the individual grows. So for anyone who is looking for great job satisfaction and personal growth, this is a great opportunity.' Reporting to the managing director, duties will include hiring flight attendants for new clients; organising and monitoring flight attendant training programmes and training manuals; catering to clients' needs in a timely manner; taking flights to ensure that TAG cabin standards are maintained; and helping out when a local per diem flight attendant is needed. 'This role is to provide a more centralised resource, to lead in the setting up of policies and standards of the cabin service that we are trying to offer our clients,' Ms Howard said. 'In our business, every aircraft requirement is different because they are owned by different high-net-worth individuals or corporations. 'The cabin service is an important part of our service. When an individual aircraft owner buys an aircraft, everything is much more personalised. What you want from that kind of level is special, just as if you had your own boat, or your own car,' she said. The manager should have corporate aviation flight attendant experience with on-demand charter operations and at least seven years of flight attendant experience overall. Personality is everything in this role. The candidate must have extensive training experience, be knowledgeable in cabin safety regulations and procedures, enjoy training others and striving for excellence. A personable and independent person with strong conflict resolution and problem solving skills will succeed in this role. 'Someone who enjoys flying and enjoys being around airplanes and feels excited in the aviation field will enjoy the job,' she said. 'Outgoing and personable are minimum requirements because this job will require meeting lots of people.' There is a human resources element to the job which also requires dealing face-to-face with clients, so having an understanding of someone else's needs is important to train staff and provide the kind of service that clients want. 'This role is for someone who wants to succeed in this service industry and because this is a unique business, it can give you a lot of job satisfaction.'
