Our Culture

“We want to create a more inclusive work environment to help every colleague bring their whole self to work - and to reflect the diversity of the public that we serve to protect.”  Richard Moriarty Chief Executive Officer.   

Everyone is welcome here and should expect our complete support to be their best self. This means being able to bring your voice, your thoughts and opinions with you. We believe that active engagement and discussion are key to helping us develop and improve.  

We do more than just listen.  Actions are important too. We are committed to supporting change within the organisation and the wider aviation industry. Education is critical to driving inclusivity and we are proud of our awareness campaigns.  We work in partnership with organisations such as the Business Disability Forum and Vercida.

The CAA is helping to create change in our industry by improving aviation services for disabled passengers and those with reduced mobility and through contributions to the Women in Aviation Charter.

These initiatives contribute to an environment free from discrimination, victimisation, harassment or bullying. Helping every colleague to bring their whole self to work.

Being an equal opportunity employer we actively encourage and support applications from candidates of all backgrounds. If you have a disability or special need that requires adjustments, please let us know.

Wherever possible, we offer flexible and variable working hours to help our people effectively manage all areas of their lives.

Diversity & Inclusion

The CAA is committed to ensuring equality of opportunity. It is our policy to treat all employees and job applicants fairly and equally regardless of any protected characteristic.

In respect of recruitment, career progression and development, the CAA will ensure that no requirement or condition will be imposed without justification that could disadvantage an individual on any of the above grounds. Wherever possible, efforts will be made to identify and remove unnecessary or unjustifiable barriers and provide appropriate facilities and employment conditions to meet the needs of any underrepresented groups.

We are committed to the implementation of this policy and to a programme of action to ensure that the policy is, and continues to be, fully effective. We will regularly review supporting policies, procedures and selection criteria to ensure that individuals are selected, promoted and otherwise treated according to their relevant individual abilities and merits. All employees are required to attend equality and diversity awareness training.

The CAA recognises the positive contribution that individual differences can bring and how these factors will support the CAA’s stated Mission and Values, in particular:

  • Maintaining and developing excellence in people.
  • Working together effectively, internally and externally.
  • Developing and empowering staff, and valuing their contribution.
  • Continuously improving performance and processes.

The CAA’s commitment to taking action to embed equality and diversity into the organisation is relevant to all that we do and we will:

  • Understand, value and welcome equality and diversity in our workforce.
  • Ensure that all relevant policies reflect our commitment to action.
  • Promote positive behaviours by treating people with respect, consideration and without prejudice.
  • Support the use of flexible working patterns wherever possible to enable employees to balance work and home responsibilities.

Benefits

The CAA can only deliver on our vision of aviation excellence with an engaged and happy team and so we take our approach to reward, recognition and benefits seriously. It is rewarding to know that our people feel strongly about their contribution to our shared vision. Of course, we also strive to ensure everyone has a competitive salary and much more in terms of benefits to recognise and reward their impact.
