This region encompasses the Middle East Division, Israel Division and Africa Division, making it a very diverse region. In terms of land mass, you will need an A380 to cover the area on a reasonable day and time zones spread across several hours. The ability to speak at least some of the many languages of this region is a plus, as well as the ability to work with little or no supervision (and sleep). Qualified applicants will be thoroughly vetted to ensure we have the most qualified and dedicated staff for our members.

• Getting in touch with members who register but do not connect to the network;
• Ensure vACCs have information about new members and transfers;
• Assist the Regional Director in any capacity as required to ensure the daily operations and continuity of services to the various Divisions and vACCs in the Region

Applicant Requirements:
• Must be a member of the VATSIM Middle East Region for at least the last 24 months from the date of submission of application; exceptions may be granted on a case by case basis.
• Applicants who reside in Africa or Middle East region in real world will be given preference over applicants from other regions;

• If appointed, applicant must agree to resign from any current vACC or Division staff appointments/positions held upon appointment;
