Jobs: Senior Specialist–Security And Rescue Operations

Hey folks, I am not the recruiter for this job and I do not work for this company, but I definitely wanted to put it out there as a cool gig to get on. Global Rescue has been one of the ‘go to’ companies out there for medical evacuations, or just basic client evacuations from really bad places in the world. They were involved in evacuating clients during the Arab Spring, and they are currently contracted to work the Sochi Olympics. (go to their Facebook page to check out more stories)

If you have a medical background, and a shooter background, you would be a great fit for this company. Either way, check out this job or the other jobs they have posted.  They even have a medical gig in Thailand! Please follow the links below if you would like to apply. –Matt

Jobs: Aircraft Load Master, OCONUS

I wanted to post this one as a unique job to get into. This is a paracargo job or kicker job and you don’t see too many of these being advertised.

In the smokejumpers I used to partake in these types of operations all the time and they are pretty cool. Flying low and kicking cargo to the guys on the ground, up in some mountain range at some remote fire, is quite the experience.

As to this specific load master job, you would be working with a pretty unique aircraft (DHC 4T Turbo Caribou) and more than likely you would be working in Afghanistan. I did a post awhile back about FlightWorks winning an LCLA contract in Afghanistan and posted a video to go with it if you want to check that out.

My only advice to FlightWorks on this is that there should be some mention of the possibility of crashing or getting shot down, and that Load Masters and crew should be prepared for that possibility. Meaning they should have survival gear and weapons, and some background or training as a back up for that possibility. –Matt
