Air Traffic Controllers

Air Traffic Controllers 

Applications for the 2024 Student Controller Programme Recruitment Drive have closed, please submit your appliction for the 2025 Recruitment Drive.

An Air Traffic Controller is responsible for the safe, orderly and expeditious movement of air traffic on and in the vicinity of airports and in the airspace for which Ireland is responsible. Our air traffic controllers keep aircraft at safe distances from each other in the air and on the ground, while arranging them in an optimised order for takeoff or landing along organised flight paths. We use systems and processes to remove the risk of collisions, while allowing the maximum number of aircraft to fly safely in our skies. As airspace gets busier, and at peak times, this becomes increasingly challenging.

Air Traffic Controllers are recruited through our Student Controller Programme and applicants must be at least 19 years of age. They must also have passed at least five subjects in the Leaving Certificate including Mathematics with a Grade H5 in at least two higher level papers or hold a comparable award at Level 5 on the National Framework of Qualifications (NFQ).
