Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Wednesday, 8 April 2009

The Civil Aviation Authority of Singapore (CAAS) is actively recruiting to fill more than 400 new job positions for professionals, managers, executives and technical officers for the upcoming corporatisation of Singapore Changi Airport and the restructuring of the existing CAAS.

 The vacancies are in both the restructured CAAS (‘NewCAA’) and the new airport company (‘NewCo’).

 From 1 July 2009, CAAS’ existing functions will be split between NewCAA and NewCo, with NewCAA undertaking the role of the regulator to drive the regulatory functions including Aviation Safety and Airworthiness.

The NewCAA will also provide air traffic services, conduct International Relations, partner government bodies like the Economic Development Board in the promotion and development of the aviation industry and Singapore as an air hub. Another focus area is the development of the Singapore Aviation Academy into a world class centre for knowledge sharing and international standard aviation related training institution.

For NewCo, it will assume the role of an airport operator and will undertake operational functions focusing on airport operations and management, operations and airport emergency services. Investments in foreign airports will also be under the ambit of the NewCo.

 The recruitment effort for the 400 vacancies is targeted at professionals with tertiary qualifications such as engineers, accountants and managers to undertake key roles in the strategic, regulatory and airport operations functions as well as executives and technical officers for administrative and technical building maintenance support.

 The current 1,800 CAAS staff have been assigned to NewCAA or NewCo based on job functions, with about 600 and 1200 staffs respectively.

Mr Lim Kim Choon, CAAS Director-General and Chief Executive Officer said, “The objective of corporatisation is to enhance Changi Airport’s competitiveness and strengthen our aviation hub status. The corporatisation and restructuring exercise seeks to create two equally strong entities with a good share of its current talents so that they are able to operate smoothly upon separation. In addition, the corporatisation process presents new employment opportunities as the new entities create over 400 new positions to augment the existing CAAS’ staff strength.”
