About the job


To measure and characterise the performance of customer mechanical test and
measurement equipment (TME) by comparison to TEPL calibration standards or
artefacts, in accordance with authorised procedure and metrological good practice.

Job description

1. Understanding and complying with statutory, quality and organisational requirements for aviation, including safety, documentation, occupational health and safety in an aviation environment.
2. To carry out calibration and/or measurements in accordance with authorised
3. Adjustment or partial reconditioning of customer assets that have drifted outside
specification (where possible).
4. To complete all relevant paperwork (e.g. F731) in order to declare the customer asset as conforming to required specification and having a calibration that is traceable to the
International System of Units (SI units), as realised at NMI (national metrological institution) level.
5. To ensure that calibration standards or artefacts used during measurement activities are those specified in the authorised calibration procedure, are fit for use and hold a valid calibration status. To report any suspected issues with calibration standards or artefacts that may compromise the integrity of measurement results.
6. To analyse and interpret measurement results, ensuring that customer asset performance is within the specification stated in the applicable calibration statement of requirement and/or standard.
7. To update calibration records on TEPL business system (Beaver Data Management System (DMS)) prior to and after any calibration activity. To ensure that data has been captured accurately regarding calibration assets/artefacts used (metrological traceability) and that any important information regarding customer asset as-found and as-left conditions has been logged.
8. To ensure the proper handling of customer assets both during measurement activity and in preparation of hand-over to warehousing team.
9. To coordinate with Team Leader and/or TEPL Support Engineers in the raising of Request For Change (RFC) forms for issues that have been identified with regard to documented calibration procedures.

preparation for internal recalibration or dispatch to external calibration organisations.
12. To assist with development of calibration methodology and procedure, where agreed with the Team Leader.
13. To report calibration standards and artefacts that are suspected to have drifted excessively in value or whose operation is suspect and may have an impact on validity of measurement.
14. To follow procedure regarding the bonding of customer assets where a TEPL standard or procedure has become unavailable or unsuitable for use.
15. To ensure the protection of mechanical calibration standards if the laboratory experiences an unacceptable drift in ambient humidity and temperature conditions outside specified parameters.
16. To ensure the cleanliness and integrity of working calibration area in preparation of
measurement activity and to maintain on an on-going basis.
17. To assist with technical queries received through TEPL Helpdesk, where possible and on the strict on condition that there is no risk to integrity of results or customer confidentiality.
18. To coordinate with TEPL Engineering Support in the authorisation of alternative Test and Measurement equipment if a suitable alternative calibration standard has been identified in lieu of either a specified standard that is unavailable or if an opportunity for enhanced accuracy has been identified.
