Hans-Erik Viklund  

OSM Aviation Academy is looking for a full-time Scheduler / Administrator to act as a supporting function to the organisation in Västerås, Sweden.

OSM Aviation Academy is one of the most esteemed flight schools in Europe and has delivered professional flight training for individuals and airlines since 1963, previously under the name of Scandinavian Aviation Academy. OSM Aviation Academy is now being elevated and repositioned as a cohesive corporate entity of OSM Aviation and parent company of flight school subsidiaries. We are team players and strive to unleash everyone’s professional potential within the frames of the organization.

As a scheduler, you will report to the Chief Flight Instructor (CFI), but you will have contact with and support other functions within the organization as well. A lot of the work will be independent and therefore you should be able to motivate yourself and take initiative when something needs to be done. The primary task will be scheduling but as you get used to the job, you will be able to take on a great range of tasks related to the office and flight school operation.

In return, we offer a professional organization where there will be great opportunities for personal development through different responsibilities. You will be working with colleagues who are ambitious, eager and committed to fulfilling our brand of being the best aviation training provider on the market. We have a great team of a range of personality types, which we value highly as we believe in having the right person in the position where they fit the best. In the role as a scheduler, a good personality disposition is one that is able to work with high concentration on more focused tasks but feels comfortable dealing with people.

We operate with a flat company culture that we believe creates a healthy and trustworthy relationship between co-workers and managers, which is crucial to achieving a safe and quality-oriented pilot training.
