As part of its continued growth, easyJet is to recruit more than 1,200 new permanent and fixed-term cabin crew positions across all of its 27 European bases, but half of the roles will be based in the UK.
The news comes after easyJet’s announcement earlier this year that it was opening recruitment for more than 350 pilots and providing career opportunities for more than 150 of its current First Officers to be promoted into Captain positions.
Tina Milton, easyJet’s head of cabin service, stated, “We’re delighted to be opening recruitment for more than 1,200 cabin crew positions today. Being cabin crew is a very rewarding role – our teams are extremely professional and energetic with a real sense of fun. easyJet is a fantastic company to work for with everyone across the airline working together as one team to ensure we provide the highest standard of service for our passengers. We’re looking forward to welcoming more people into our growing team.”New recruits will complete a series of online pre-coursework tasks, then undertake three weeks of practical demonstrations in areas such as safety procedures, aviation security and first aid.
easyJet currently employs over 5,500 cabin crew across its all-Airbus fleet, with the carrier’s onboard team made up of three flight attendants and a cabin manager who work closely with the Captain and First Officer.
