Marc Stickley, Air Safety Manager

What attracted you to work at Ascent?

I first learned about Ascent from a resettlement briefing delivered shortly before I left the Army in 2016. It seemed to me that they could offer a lot of the things I was looking for in post-Military employment – location, job requirements matching my skill set and of interest to me – Military Aviation. However, at that time, there were no suitable roles for me in the company.

Fast forward a few years and I saw my role advertised and the star aligned!

What does your role as the Air Safety Manager at Ascent involve?

My role provides the MD and Ascent Board assurance that all Ascent activities are conducted safely, in an Air Safety context. Because we are partnered within the UK MFTS enterprise, I also offer advice and support to the Military and DE&S organisations.

What do you enjoy most about working at Ascent?

Two things – it’s belonging to a brilliant team; and being part of an organisation that is helping aviators of the future achieve their early career goals.

What are the benefits of working at Ascent & why you would recommend working here?

Ascent is a friendly organisation that offers flexible employment opportunities, with great benefits. For me personally, it is the ideal organisation for location, career path and industry sector, having transitioned from a Military career that culminated in the aviation arena.
