The nine-to-five grind isn’t for everyone, and the airline industry is far from an ordinary working schedule. Those craving a big life change or just a change of scenery from another airline can pop into the cabin crew open day hosted by the Dubai-based airline, Emirates. Unsurprisingly, they are turning to the UK’s friendliest city looking for new cabin crew to join the company in Dubai.
The Emirates open day will be held on Tuesday, August 29 at Maldron Hotel Glasgow City on Renfrew Street, with the world’s largest international airline scouting for the best talent out there.
The perfect candidates are the ones with a passion for delivering simple, yet personalised and impeccable hospitality while creating memorable moments for their customers. And, of course, airline safety being one of the highest priorities, the ideal person will lead confidently and take control when it comes to managing aircraft services, security, and safety procedures. Emirates also claims that ‘crew will receive a world-class learning experience at the airline’s state-of-the-art facility in Dubai’.
Applicants hoping to give their careers a shooting take-off will just need to bring an up-to-date curriculum vitae (CV) in English, and a recent photograph. Everyone is also advised to pre-register for a smoother experience. However, if you haven’t registered beforehand, feel free to just walk in, as that is the whole point of an open day.
What is more, to boost your chances it is always good to check out the airline’s career page for requirements and the selection process, and candidates should be prepared to spend the whole day at the venue.
Emirates’ global cabin crew team represents 160 nationalities reflecting its customer mix and international operations in over 130 cities on six continents operating a modern fleet of over 200 wide-body aircraft. The airline is the largest global operator of the Boeing 777 and the Airbus A380 aircraft, which the newly-trained cabin crew will be operating as well.
On top of getting to live in Dubai, the cabin crew get a tax-free salary, free company-provided accommodation, free transport to and from work and medical cover as well as exclusive discounts on shopping and leisure activities in Dubai. And, of course, travel perks!
While on the outside being cabin crew looks glamorous, one should always keep in mind that hard work is also to be expected, as well as plenty of sleepless nights and jetlag. A quick wit, common sense and fast reaction to when things go wrong on board will get you a long way, and if you can demonstrate that on the recruitment day, even better.
It will be an adventure of a lifetime, so just buckle up and get ready for the wild ride.
