Investing in our People
At Osprey, our passion for technical excellence and providing first-class consultancy services runs through the company, with our people being integral to our continued success. Recruitment of high-quality individuals is obviously one important aspect of this, but so is ensuring that all our staff have every opportunity to fulfil their true potential.
We’re therefore delighted to announce five internal promotions. These are staff who have demonstrated enthusiasm, passion and technical excellence on every project they have delivered and are ready for even more challenge and responsibility.

Simon has become a true expert in CAP 1616 Airspace Change Proposal (ACP) projects. He is delivering a number of complex and challenging ACP’s, including the project that is currently furthest through the CAP 1616 process; he is therefore genuinely leading the field.

Since joining Osprey from university, Dan has been tasked with a diverse range of projects to give him exposure to a wide variety of engineering and safety assurance disciplines.
