Job description

MAF UK is excited to be calling interested applicants to apply to become a student on our sponsored aircraft engineering training scheme.  We are seeking to enable aspiring aircraft maintenance engineers to join MAF and work overseas.  This opportunity is available to those resident in the UK and Ireland.  

If you're successful, we will help you achieve the theoretical knowledge and practical experience necessary to obtain an EASA B1 or B2 licence. You will then go on to serve with MAF in various programmes across Africa and the Asia-Pacific region. 

Practical experience

To gain the required practical experience for your licence, you will be placed in one of our partner maintenance organisations, with the opportunity to work on a wide range of commercial aircraft. 

Financial assistance

MAF UK will provide financial assistance by employing candidates on fixedterm contracts for the period of service. 
This assists with living expenses and accommodation costs. MAF UK will also cover the cost of tuition for both the approved and modular routes. For those on the degree route, MAF UK will pay monthly student loan repayments for the length of active service. During practical assignments, maintenance providers will employ candidates directly and pay a salary in line with industry standards.

Training agreement

In view of MAF UK’s investment, successful candidates will be required to sign a training agreement binding them to service with MAF following the completion of their studies and practical experience. This agreement will normally last between four and eight years. Self-withdrawal from overseas service will require pro rata repayment of training-related costs.

Educational requirements

Completion of A level mathematics and physics at grade B and above, plus MAF specific occupational requirements that are outlined on our website. 


The selection process will include interviews, technical evaluations, and the completion of medical and psychological assessments.

Application Process

Download and complete the application form found on our website.  If you have questions during this process, feel free to drop us an email.

There is an occupational requirement for staff to be committed Christians, sent and supported by their home Church, and able to support and promote the Christian ethos and beliefs of MAF as a mission organisation through taking part in Christian activities such as Church events, prayer meetings etc.  This role (unless otherwise specified) requires some personal support raising to be carried out under the guidance and training of MAF UK.

Applicants must be resident in the UK or Ireland and have the support of their local home Church in order to apply to MAF UK for this training opportunity.
