Manager in Training, Uganda

MAF has been seeking to serve some of the most isolated communities across the world using aviation and technology for over 70 years.

We recognise we need to invest in training MAF managers of the future to continue this vital work. To do this we are launching a ‘Manager in Training’ scheme based in our Uganda programme. We are looking for people who have previous management experience but may not have aviation or overseas mission experience.

The ‘Manager in Training’ syllabus will cover a number of areas. You will shadow the department heads to gather a full understanding of the day-to-day activities and key responsibilities in each of the following areas:

• Strategy and ministry
• Operations and maintenance
• People management and motivation
• Quality, safety and security
• Finance and legal
• Airfield management
• Support activities and logistics

The scheme will run through a series of learning interventions including a mix of shadowing, project assignments, mentoring, coaching and study. It will be for a 4 year term – with an initial 2 year training programme followed by a move into a management position within MAF for those who successfully complete it.
