SIA Trainee Station Manager

Postby dtzw » Sat, 09 Feb 2008 4:56 pm

Hi all! I have been browsing this very informative site in interest these couple of days. However most topics are cabin crew related. I was wondering if anyone could provide more information about the role of a Trainee Station Manager, the interview process as well as the advancement path. I have already read the job description through the website.

As for education, I am currently a Communication major enrolled in the honours program in Canada. However, I doubt I'll get first class honours. Would that affect my chances in anyway? Lastly I have been trying to search for SIA HR's department email so that I could email them with inquires due to me being physically in Canada.

Could anyone help me with my questions? Thanks in advance!

See information by toygirl who hasn't posted for some time;

Station Manager? - Honours graduate. Seriously. Good Honours from a credible university - so those distance learning MDIS type of qualification I doubt will suffice entry.

This is a leadership role so you better start working on leadership areas in your CCAs.

Preferred would be Business Admin, Finance, Law but all degree types are welcome - as long as it is a good honours - 2nd Uppers or 1st Class.

There is no direct entry on this scheme, you will go through a training program on airport ops - you basically need to know everything from cargo, catering, safety regulations CAAS and others, contingency plans, customer service, ticketing, etc. One you pass and are qualified, you will be posted to an overseas station as a Station Manager.

Pay - You are paid in Singapore dollars with additional allowances when you're based overseas such as living allowance, child, school, accomodation, etc.

I think you're putting all your eggs in this basket. These positions are not like cabin crew jobs where you just need O levels, or some 1 year degree and automatically get in. It's always good to have a backup plan.

Never specialise too early - I know some people who took Aviation Management overseas as undergraduate studies and couldn't find jobs - Duh! - Some fresh 21 year old with a pass degree wanting a management job....... (Puiiiii)
