The world’s largest international airline is coming to Lancaster this week looking for candidates to join its multinational cabin crew team.

Dubai-based airline Emirates is holding a Cabin Crew Recruitment Open Day on Thursday March 21 at 9am at the Holiday Inn in Caton Road.

The airline is looking for both women and men to fill the new positions which have been created due to the continued growth of the airline, including the recent addition of new routes on the Emirates network as well as additional aircraft.

Candidates are encouraged to complete an online application too at http://www.emiratesgroupcareers.com/cabin-crew/.

Cabin crew are offered an entire employment package, which includes a variety of benefits such as a tax-free income, free shared accommodation in Dubai, free transport to/from work, medical and dental cover as well as exclusive discounts on shopping and leisure activities in Dubai. It also offers attractive concessional travel benefits for cabin crew as well as their families and friends, particularly advantageous as Emirates’ growing global network offers many travel opportunities across the airline’s six continents-spanning network.

There are a number of criteria that need to be filled in order to be considered.

These include that applicants are at least 21 years of age at the time of joining and have an arm reach of 212cm when standing on tiptoes.

Although not mandatory, candidates are encouraged to complete an online application on the Emirates Group careers website prior to attending the Open Day.

Richard Jewsbury, Divisional Vice President UK for Emirates spoke about what the airline is looking for from interested applicants, “Our cabin crew are open-minded, helpful, friendly and service-oriented and that’s what we need from candidates in order to deliver Emirates’ award-winning onboard experience to customers. This open day is a great opportunity for people to get their career off to a flying start. Applicants just need to drop in to the Open Day with an up-to-date CV in English and a recent photograph.”

“Candidates will need to come prepared to spend the full day at the venue if required. Shortlisted candidates will be informed of timings for further assessments and interviews,” Jewsbury continued.

“It is an exciting time for us as Emirates continues to grow and we encourage interested applicants to attend and meet some of our cabin crew recruitment team who will be happy to answer any questions about the role and life in Dubai.”
