Fiona Ribbons

I joined Helios as an intern in the summer leading up to my final year at Imperial College, London. Whilst interning, I was pleasantly surprised by how much freedom I was allowed to direct my own projects; the ability to take ownership of my work right away was something that really attracted me to the company. My experience was enhanced by the uniquely

After graduating with a Masters in Environmental Engineering and Business Management the following year, I was pleased to return to Helios as an Analyst Consultant in late 2017. I have already been involved in a wide range of projects, from helping organise cross-industry stakeholder meetings for the European Commission in Brussels, to aiding in benchmarking activities for Air Navigational Service Providers and working on safety projects in the Middle East.talented, diverse team, that made me feel valued and welcome from day one.

The real selling point for me in coming back was the opportunities the job presents, in terms of travel, client exposure, and rapid career development. If you're looking for an exciting, fast-paced career, where every day is different, Helios is probably right for you.

Andreia Simoes

I joined Helios as a Senior Consultant in September 2017 with a wide range of professional experiences in the bag.

My background is in Mechanical Engineering, with a specialisation in Energy, this was followed by a MSc in Transports, from The Instituto Superior Tecnico in Lisbon, Portugal. During this 16 years of professional experience I crossed from scientific research, (when I also started supporting the European Commission as an Independent Invited Expert for Research), to the business and transports consultancy, both in Portugal and Angola, where I was based for two years.

Before joining Helios, I worked in Airport Management in Viracopos International Airport in Sao Paulo, Brazil, from 2013 until 2017. I mainly coordinated projects regarding the economic and financial balance of the concession contract, which meant being involved in multidisciplinary activities such as air cargo logistics and billing, airside and landside operations, master plan implementation and commercial contracts. This was a milestone in my professional career, I fell in love with the aviation sector and I became an International Airport Professional (IAP) (certified by ACI and ICAO).

Moving to the UK and joining Helios was a big decision and, several months in, it has been a great experience. I have been involved with some high-profile clients, such as the UK Space Agency and the European Commission, involving a couple of very interesting projects, crossing from Spaceports to the implementation of aviation regulation in Europe. But the highest point is definitely Helios' team, a pool of very competent professionals who work together to build successful outcomes.

Helios provides what every professional seeks, challenging opportunities in which you can progress, impactful projects worldwide covering several aviation areas, a supportive team and work recognition. Personally, I would say that Helios gives me the opportunity to keep flying higher.
