​Resource Group are excited to announce a newly formed partnership with the UK start-up airline, Hans Airways. Resource Group have started the recruitment process for the flight crews needed to support Hans Airways path towards gaining its UK Air Operator Certificate (AOC) later this year. Resource Group’s UK subsidiary, Contractair will work alongside Hans Airways in hiring Captains, First Officers and Training Captains required to fly its planned fleet of A330-200s. Contractair has a long history of providing dedicated support to the commercial and VIP aviation markets with an added focus on the quality of personnel that such operations require. “We welcome Hans Airways to our ever-expanding portfolio of airline partners and we look forward to helping them on their start-up journey,” comments Robin Hepworth, Business Manager at Resource Group. “We have been serving the recruitment and resourcing needs of the aviation and aerospace sector for more than 40 years and we are confident of maintaining a strong relationship with Hans Airways as its network expands.”“This recruitment agreement is a well-timed development as we prepare to launch our direct non-stop flights to India later in 2021,” says Nathan Burkitt, Director Flight Operations and Crew Training at Hans Airways. “It will allow the leadership team to focus on our launch preparations while at the same time filling the essential flight crew roles that we need. Resource Group brings decades of invaluable experience in this field, having worked with the likes of British Airways, Virgin Atlantic and easyJet, to name but a few of their other airline partners.”Hans Airways are delivering on their promise to sign with well-recognised third-party suppliers and Resource Group look forward to sourcing its first flight crew in readiness for the start of operations in late 2021. “Our intention from the beginning has been to work with industry-leading partners, like Resource Group, who are recognised as best in class at what they do. This strategy will continue as we move closer to launch,” adds Burkitt. For further details please visit: www.hansairways.com / www.resourcegroup.co.uk/

International Expansion

​Resource Group was approached by an airline whose niche market was saturated. The company contacted us to discuss opportunities in other countries, as well as possible solutions that would implement the best strategy for various variables such as geography, local legislation, skills available, taxes and social security. Other factors to be considered were operational providers, line maintenance, airport fees and their current company skillset, and the ability to adapt to the ever-changing environment. After several meetings between the client and ourselves, a tailored solution was provided. We worked in collaboration, where we provided consulting services that led to an HR partnership in various countries in the north and southeast of Europe. Focusing on the client’s objectives, we also provided support on the following.·         Commercial proposals for ACMI and wet-leasing services·         Creation of their branches and management teams·         Connection and coordination with HQ·         Recruitment, Screening and Compliance Due to our international presence, Resource Group was able to provide a solution that resulted in an efficient expansion with physical offices and increased presence in various countries, as well as compliant operations in alternative locations.

Optimisation of the Recruitment Budget

With a wealth of expertise in aviation-based human resources, our complete range of HR services provides our clients with the right services to achieve strategic goals in employee satisfaction, retention, and development, whilst reducing fixed HR costs. At various points, we would work with one of our regular clients to recruit specific roles for them. Their HR department was saturated and struggled with capacity, therefore they relied on us when needed. The client kept growing but the department was structured in a way that all employees were involved in all fronts of the recruitment and resourcing process. Therefore, the team was not specialised in key areas which could result in further success. Within one of the requests, we explained to the client that their current approach was not cost-effective and by outsourcing all recruitment on a fixed fee and a pay-for-use basis it would be much cheaper for them with better results. We are known as experts in meeting client expectations, and we have the global presence to identify candidates who best match the client and work requirements and who are motivated to maintain their performance with a lifetime commitment. With our ability to offer a full suite of recruitment services, we entered a contract with the client which was reviewed on a quarterly basis and adapted to suit their operations and recruitment activities.  ​

TAG Compliant Payroll – Ireland

With 40 years of accumulated experience in providing -payroll and employment solutions to our clients, Resource Group is proud to have a Blue Chip list of clients for whom we employ and manage flight crew. TAG Aviation is one such client, who we have worked on a full-time basis for 15 years. In 2019, TAG Aviation (UK) Ltd. was requested to take on the management of an Irish-based private jet. One of the stipulations was that the Irish-based crew were also to be engaged, in a compliant and ‘in country’ way, essentially as the aircraft would be based and operate out of Ireland.  This means adhering to all the Employment, Tax and Social Insurance requirements that an Irish-based company would have to provide as the Employer in Ireland. TAG Aviation turned to Resource Group to assist. Resource Group is able to set up compliant employment management and payrolls in jurisdictions where our clients are either unable to, or simply where it is financially unviable to do so, as we already have the infrastructure in place to be able to set up and run at a much reduced cost -base. Also, due to our unparalleled experience in managing such multi -jurisdiction requirements, TAG immediately benefits from, in effect, having an already ‘mature’ employment process in country, meaning that they will not face many of the ‘hidden’ issues that are common for Companies when setting up in a new country. With our current registration as a legal employer in Ireland, and a payroll system that is able to adhere to all State tax, social insurance and pension contributory schemes (including the ability to be able to transfer the current crew seamlessly from their current Irish employer), TAG was able to complete the transfer of the Aircraft Management Contract within days, without any worries of the problems of employment of the crew.A major win for all sides.

Swiss-based Aviation Recruitment Consultancy

The inauguration of the Nomad Technic’s facility in 2018, resulted in the need for a Swiss-based aviation recruitment consultancy to support the recruitment of a growing team and provide a Swiss-approved labour lease framework. Resource Group was initially engaged to recruit various team members on a permanent basis. Following this success, Resource Group was called upon to be Nomad’s first-choice supplier for temporary aircraft maintenance staff, and to this day we continue to supply Nomad with their weekly requirements for skilled aircraft technicians and licensed engineers to complement their staff and operations. Through our longevity in the Swiss market and our access to local labour pools, coupled with our understanding of local Swiss labour lease regulations, we have been able to continually guide and advise Nomad with their temporary labour supply. “We are happy to have Resource Group as our first-choice onsite provider of our aircraft maintenance contractor workforce. They are able to react quickly to our requirements and supply high-quality technical skills at short notice whilst guaranteeing excellent service levels – the onsite management they provide is the extra touch both we and their contractors all appreciate”.

A Corporate Responsible Service

​Rising to the challenge of a crisis is nothing new to organisations within the aviation and aerospace industry however, the impact of COVID-19 on our sector has been tremendous. The actions that businesses take during these times are crucial resulting in clients adapting and adjusting to the new environment. During the last crisis, the traffic decreased on average 40%, with low expectations of an immediate recovery. These circumstances led to the unfortunate journey of companies having to make difficult decisions to maintain the core of the business and remain in the air. A client of ours, a known operator had to make a big adjustment in Spain and made the decision to move staff to other offices in Europe. Management was aware of the complexities of relocating all staff during these testing times, therefore they wanted to support them by having an Outplacement programme in place during this transition. The client approached several companies for an outplacement programme however they were not searching for a generic solution. Resource Group offers tailored solutions for each client alongside a wide range of services that are adapted to your budget and needs. We were able to provide a solution that was driven by years of industry knowledge, which highlighted our understanding of roles within aviation and how to support employees to find employment during a high-stress situation. The outplacement scheme was programmed for six months, which would enable us to work together with the client and identify job opportunities in the market. Within the first few weeks, most of the non-relocated staff were supported to find another opportunity. Feedback from enrolled personnel was that the humanist treatment and empathy throughout the process enabled them to have the confidence and enthusiasm to choose the best options available to them and have a plan in place during their new job.
