Welcome to the team Alex

We’re delighted to welcome Alex Wade to the team at Smart HQ.

Alex bowled us over with his enthusiasm and common sense approach when he completed a six week long work experience placement with us, alongside his BTEC Diploma in Aviation Operations course at East Surrey College.

Having recently graduated with a wealth of fresh knowledge, we took the opportunity to expand our busy charter team and take Alex on as a full-time trainee charter broker. He will assist our experienced charter team with sourcing aircraft for clients around the world, as well as spending time with our ACMI and aircraft leasing team during their busy summer season.

A highlight of Alex’s work experience with us was a visit to London Biggin Hill Airport to experience first-hand just what it feels like to board a private jet. Alex is pictured on the left with another of our work experience students.

Matthew Savage, Sales Director commented;

I am delighted to welcome Alex to the team as a trainee charter broker, he is exactly what I hoped for when we started our partnership with East Surrey College 12 months ago; eager to learn, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. Having spent considerable time working with and mentoring the students at the College, as well as offering work experience to those who are keen on a career in Aircraft Charter, we’re really pleased to welcome Alex on board at the start of what we hope will be a long and successful career in aviation. We hope this will also inspire future students to see how hard work and enthusiasm can result in a successful and enjoyable career straight from college.

We’re looking forward to continuing our relationship with East Surrey College over the 2016/17 academic year and meeting the next cohort of Aviation Operations students, as well as planning more work experience placements, talks from our experienced team and live business projects.
