ATOL (which stands for Air Travel Organiser’s Licence) is a UK financial protection scheme, established in 1973, which protects consumers booking air package holidays against the insolvency of their travel business. Over the years ATOL has become a household name and has proved itself to be hugely valuable to consumers, in particular following the failures of Thomas Cook and Monarch. ATOL continues to form a major part of the consumer protection landscape in aviation, and the CAA is committed to ensuring it remains up to date and keeps pace with the changing nature of the industry and consumer preferences.
As the Principal for ATOL Policy and Assurance your primary role will be to assess the effectiveness of our current policies for ATOL and to lead on their continued development.

This role will put you at the heart of decision making and stakeholder management for ATOL. You will become the go-to individual for both internal and external partners and it is vital that you are able to expertly engage with relevant and influential partners from government, industry and other CAA teams/departments. To achieve this, you will need to embody ATOL, representing the scheme at events and forums across the country.
