We love to work with like-minded, professional people, that know how to operate drones safely and relish working in challenging situations. Our work covers some of the most important tasks that drones can do; like National infrastructure inspections, topographical surveys for government agencies, and response call-outs for emergency services.

'Whatever the task, we need highly trained, responsible and safe operators, working as part of our extended team to deliver a high-quality service.'

To be able to deliver our professional services around the UK and abroad effectively, we introduced our Trusted Pilot Network. 
This network consists of individuals who provide a very specific skill set that can be deployed as part of our high-performance team when a project requires it.

  • We provide equipment type training and fund specialist training courses when required

  • We can supply vehicles, fuel, insurance as well as supplying the equipment for the task

  • You'll be part of a high-performance team all working to deliver the same objectives

  • You'll be able to join us on corporate and team building events

  • Travel opportunities around the UK and abroad on short and long term projects​

These are just some of the benefits that working with Team UAV brings.

How it works..

  • You'll be employed by Team UAV on a zero hours contract / sub contracted, which gives you the freedom to carry out other work when you're not working with Team UAV 

  • We'll get in touch with you to bring you into the team when there is a specialist task or project that requires your expertise, we'll discuss the task with you and set a date for the work to be started.

  • If required, you'll be given all the equipment, vehicles and administrative tools needed to complete the project

  • You'll be paid monthly for any work which you have completed in that month along with any expenses that are due. Team UAV covers the cost of accommodation upfront.
