You may have seen the new Senior Appointment Information Pack (the Pack) which was distributed with Federal Orders on 19 July and is available on the website here.
What is the relevance to you? If you are an experienced officer in the League then you may have ambitions of going to “the top of the class” and joining the team which leads the Air League. The League’s process for this high level of promotion is to submit an Expression of Interest (EOI) – essentially an application.
In order to submit an EOI with any chance of success, you need to not only familiarise yourself with the relevant sections of the manual, which give duties and accountabilities for each appointment, but also the details in the pack.
The pack provides important context around the environment of the senior team. It also gives an extensive list of capabilities needed by someone who wishes to be appointed to a senior role. Every EOI must address how the applicant’s capabilities match with those needed, as detailed in the pack, as well as the Federal Routine Order calling for the EOIs.
Why have we done this? In a word, professionalism. The League may not be a huge organisation but it needs to have qualified people in the team at the top. One of the ways to achieve this is to make it abundantly clear what attributes members of our leadership team need. This is a role of the Senior Appointment Information Pack. It also, usefully, packs a great deal of contextual information into a small(ish) package.

The closing date for expressions of interest is 7 August 2021
