Expression of Interest: International Operations Manager

Swoop Aero was founded to bring autonomous air transport to everyday life by revolutionising access to on-demand healthcare for everyone, everywhere.

To do this, we’ve brought together a team of eternally optimistic and resourceful doers to tackle these seemingly insurmountable problems and get it done.

We’ve worked hard over the last 12 months and successfully deployed the first inbound/ outbound airborne logistics service in the world, the first in Central Africa, raised venture capital to continue our rapid growth, were recognised as a joint winner of the New York Times Good Tech Awards 2018, and named as the AUVSI Humanitarian Excellence award winner for 2019.

We are looking for highly talented individuals for some once in a lifetime opportunities; you’ll love to be challenged, and have the strong the ability to lead and influence a team.

About the Role:

International Operations Managers play a key role in leading the deployment of a Swoop Aero network abroad; they are the boots on the ground, everywhere we go.

You can expect to spend up three to four months abroad in a South East Asian or African region, leading a small team to commence flight operations and build the local Swoop Aero capacity in the region for enduring operations. So far, we are operating in DRC and Vanuatu.

It’s a once in a lifetime opportunity, but we have some specific requirements:


  • You’ll have demonstrated experience working in the emerging world, interacting with stakeholders at a high level, and overcoming adversity to achieve outstanding results. This could be working for an NGO or a multi-lateral, and any commercial experience is a bonus.
  • You have exposure to aviation operations, ideally holding a civil pilots license or have experience managing aircraft operations. If you’re a superstar, we can move on this one and provide you world class training; but you’ll have to learn quickly.
  • You’ve can demonstrate proven leadership ability, and have at least 18 months of experience in a management role.
  • You’re fluent in French, Portuguese, or Bahasa Indonesian.


At Swoop, we are moving more than just medical supplies. We’re moving the needle on positive health outcomes, more efficient use of energy and a better world. We welcome people from all backgrounds who are seeking to have an impact, so come and join us and take this opportunity to leave your mark on the world.

If you fit the description, are passionate about changing peoples lives, and are willing to learn everything it takes to excel at this job, we’d love to hear from you.
