Full time

Hello. We’re Virgin Australia. And we’re back (in a big way).

We’re the airline that’s always done things a little different. Our way. The Virgin way. For us, flying is so much more than simply taking off and landing (although we understand that is quite important). It’s about going the extra mile, in the air and on the ground, to create authentic experiences that put our guests firmly at the heart of everything we do. 

What you’ll be doing:

The objective of the Flight Operations Resource Planner role is to coordinate the allocation of training requirements and the production of compliant rosters by assigned deadlines, with proactive consideration of quality measures such as bid satisfaction (where relevant), fairness, productivity targets and operational robustness.

  • Resource Planners are responsible for the provision, advice and delivery of crew rosters
  • The planning and recovery of Flight and Cabin Crew training events into the live or future roster
  • The coordination of all aspects of crew ongoing training requirements, along with the compilation and management of related training programs. 
  • Conduct regular analysis of resource allocation levels
  • All industrial and regulatory requirements have been adhered to by way of thorough legality checks 
  • Publish rosters within assigned timeframes
  • Ensure that the training portion of Flight and Cabin Crew rosters are formulated to produce crew resource efficiency and comply with Company policy regarding CAO 48 compliance, Training Organisation requirements, fatigue management and EBA compliance 
  • Communicate with the Training and Crewing functions daily to understand progress of training programs and identify any training events that require rescheduling
  • Ensure compliance with safety in the workplace
  • Provide key Stakeholders with an overview of upcoming roster statistics

Who we’re looking for:

  • Minimum 1 year experience rostering in the aviation (or similar) sector. Crew planning or people rostering experience is highly advantageous
  • Experience applying Industrial, regulatory rules or enterprise agreements within a business
  • Experience delivering results within restrictive timeframes and in a fast paced, dynamic environment
  • Strong analytical ability and the ability to quickly problem solve with 100% accuracy
  • Strong IT competency across Microsoft Office and the ability to quickly learn systems

What you’ll get from us:

We’re committed to looking after you, with some of the best benefits and conditions in the industry – including (but not limited to):

  • Heavily discounted air travel for you and your loved ones (including $1000 worth of travel credits per year)
  • Flexible working arrangements (including work hours and work from home)
  • Discounts on travel insurance, car hire, accommodation and experiences worldwide
  • Discounted Virgin Australia Lounge membership
  • Hospitality, retail, technology, beauty services and wellness discounts

Equality rules

We’re all individuals. We love that. That’s why we encourage applications from Indigenous Australians, people with disability, those from diverse cultural backgrounds, our friends in the LGBTQI+ community, and anyone else who wants to join our family.


The safety and security of our people, guests and operations come first. Always. That’s why we’ve put together a comprehensive ‘Mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination Policy’. In a nutshell, to work with us, you’ll need to comply with our (and the airport’s) rules and regulations. And be fully vaxxed.
