Emirates Launches Cabin Crew Recruitment Drive

Emirates Launches Cabin Crew Recruitment Drive

Emirates is sending teams of recruitment specialists to 27 countries, including New Zealand, between January and April, as the airline launches a multi-national campaign to recruit new cabin crew for its continually growing fleet.

The airline's target is to welcome on board 1,000 high calibre new cabin crew by mid 2004, boosting total numbers to more than 5,000. Emirates will be looking for male and female candidates with excellent interpersonal and communication skills, maturity, a focus on service and a positive attitude.

They will join the world's fastest-growing intercontinental full-service airline as part of a multi-national cabin crew and work on the world's most modern fleet of Airbus and Boeing passenger jets.

In January, recruiters will visit eight cities in Europe, seven in the Asia-Pacific region (including Auckland), four in Africa and one in the Middle East (Beirut)

In February the search widens to further European cities plus Japan and Canada.

First efforts to find candidates in Central and South America come in March and April, and recruitment teams will also tour UK cities.

The award-winning airline, founded in 1985, already has around 4,000 crew serving customers on its rapidly expanding fleet, and has US$26 billion worth of orders to take the forecast number of aircraft to 133 by 2012.

Emirates offers competitive, tax-free salaries, attractive travel benefits, career security and excellent professional development opportunities. These include access to modern training facilities, as well as e-learning programmes for those seeking a long-term future in the company. Living in Dubai also offers many lifestyle benefits to cabin crew.

New Zealander Rick Helliwell, who is Emirates' Manager Recruitment, said: "We're looking for team players who get along with people from all over the world and have the confidence to relate to others in any circumstances.

"We've recently taken on more recruitment officers, all with experience in top airlines. Now we're sending them off to look for the best candidates for these demanding and exciting careers. The job is ideal for young people, and Dubai is one of the world's most dynamic and cosmopolitan cities."
