What hours do controllers work?
This is a 365-day, 24-hour business so controllers work in shifts. A controller's working week is 10 days long with 6 days of work and 4 days of rest. Also working hours span day and night shifts.
How many times can I apply?
You can apply once. The cognitive assessments will identify whether or not you have 'the right kind of brain' for the job. If you don't pass the assessments, it's not worth applying again as it's unlikely you will pass them in the future. If you're not selected, don't be too disheartened – the selection process is tough. And remember, NATS offers a variety of careers opportunities. Why not take a look at our other current vacancies.
