RESPONSIBLE TO
Head of Specialist Operations

HOURS & TERMS
Full-Time. Permanent Contract. Shift work including nights and weekends.

ROLES & RESPONSIBILITIES
Core to RVL Aviation’s successful business model is its people and culture. RVL makes a difference in every aspect of its operation. The service that RVL provides to its airborne reconnaissance and oil-spill dispersant spray customers is at the heart of these values.

As a Task Specialist, you will have responsibility to represent the customer’s interests onboard the aircraft, and on the ground, to ensure that mission objectives are achieved.  Such operations cover a broad range of missions, including;

  • Combatting major oil spills and efforts to prevent pollution incidents through enforcement and monitoring.
  • Locating persons missing at sea and those that use the sea as a domain for criminal activity.
  • Protection of the UK’s economic interests in its sea areas by providing reconnaissance for fisheries regulation, and maritime security.

Responsibility for the operational effect is what sets the fulfilment of these missions aside from our other Specialist Operations, and RVL requires a team of skilled and dedicated Task Specialists to meet that obligation.

Task Specialists are responsible for the success of a mission, from the planning, to execution, and post flight reporting.

In the air, Task Specialists are a functioning member of the aircrew and operate a suite of reconnaissance and communications equipment. The reconnaissance equipment includes Electro-Optic/Infra-Red (EO/IR) Systems, multi-mode radar, and geospatial mission systems.  Communications equipment includes satcom,  multi-band tactical radios, and line-of-sight downlinks.

The manipulation and management of mission data is a very important aspect to this role. We produce mission reports that may be distributed amongst specialist teams and government departments, without further refinement or processing from the very report produced by RVL’s Task Specialists upon landing.

Aside from flight operations duties, you will holistically support the capabilities described above, including:

  • Tasks relating to the care and maintenance of our reconnaissance and mission equipment
  • Day-to-day liaison and engagement with our customers
  • Planning and practical roles that relate to technical trials, training, and protracted incidents. The latter may include being at-sea in small work boats

  • Mission planning, customer liaison to determine objectives
  • Operation of reconnaissance equipment onboard the aircraft
  • Operation of communication equipment onboard the aircraft

    • Training activities
