- Supplying pilots with details of current and forecast weather conditions;
- Organising aircraft so that a safe distance is maintained between them at all time, both on the ground and in air;
- Dealing with emergencies, unscheduled traffic and events that are unexpected in a controlled and calm manner.

SAMPLE AIR TRAFFIC CONTROLLER INTERVIEW QUESTION
Can you provide an example of when you have worked effectively under pressure?
This kind of question is guaranteed to be asked during the Air Traffic Controller interview, simply because being able to work under pressure is a requirement of the role. Anyone can say that they “would be able to work effectively under pressure”, but actually providing evidence of when they have already demonstrated this key skill in a previous role, is a totally different matter.
When responding to this interview question consider the following tips:
Provide the interview panel with a SPECIFIC situation of where you have successfully worked under pressure in a work environment. A good example of this might be where you have had to work to a very tight deadline.
Make sure your response is concise and logical. The most effective way to achieve this is to utilise the S.T.A.R. method when creating your response:
S – tell them what the SITUATION was
T – Explain what the TASK was that you had to do
A – Tell the interview panel what ACTION you had to take and why it was effective
R – Finally, tell the interview panel what the RESULT was following your actions. Always try to ensure that the outcome or result was positive. By following the S.T.A.R structure for responding to interview questions you will be ensuring that your responses are both concise and relevant.
