HIGH-FLIERS looking to join the jet set will get the chance to apply for jobs with the world’s biggest international airline at a recruitment event in Bournemouth.

Emirates is looking for people to join its multinational cabin crew team and it’s hoping to find them at The Hermitage Hotel in Exeter Road on Friday May 17.

Candidates have to meet strict criteria and must be at least 5ft 3ins tall, able to reach almost 7ft in the air while standing on tiptoe and have no visible tattoos.

They must also be at least 21 years old and fluent in English, both verbal and written.

But for those who succeed the rewards are high with the chance to live in Dubai and a starting salary of around £2,000 per month.

The airline is looking for both men and women 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.

Cabin crew are offered an entire employment package, which includes a variety of benefits such as a tax-free income, free high-standard shared accommodation in Dubai, free transport to and from work, medical and dental cover as well as exclusive discounts on shopping and leisure activities in Dubai.

It also offers 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.

Richard Jewsbury, Divisional Vice President UK for Emirates, said: “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.”

He said members of the cabin crew recruitment team will be on hand to answer questions about the role and about what people can exepct from life in Dubai.

The airline is the largest global operator of the Boeing 777 and the Airbus A380 aircraft.
