Emirates has announced that it is returning to five locations in Ireland in May and June to help fulfil its extensive cabin crew requirements, which are growing in line with the continued expansion of the company.
The cabin crew open days will take place in Dublin on 5th May at Hilton Dublin City, Charlemont Place; Galway on 11th May at the Harbour Hotel, New Dock Road; Limerick on 14th May at the Limerick Strand Hotel, Ennis Road; Waterford on 28th May at the Granville Hotel on the Quays; and Cork’s Gresham Metropole Hotel on MacCurtain Street will host Emirates’ open day on 4th June. All events commence at 9am and full details can be found at www.emiratesgroupcareers.com, where candidates are asked to pre-register their interest.
Emirates already employs over 280 Irish nationals and more than 180 cabin crew were appointed to the airline following the last two rounds of recruitment days in Ireland, in February this year and October last. The crew will be based in Dubai, home of Emirates, which employs over 56,000 people of all nationalities, across the globe.
Margaret Shannon, Emirates Country Manager Ireland said: “Emirates is keen to grow its Irish cabin crew numbers and build on the success of earlier recruitment campaigns in the market. We know our customers enjoy speaking to fellow nationals during a flight, which is why we have cabin crew from all over the world.
“We would encourage anyone based in Ireland who is looking for an exciting and progressive career, working with people from all over the world, to pursue this fantastic recruitment opportunity. The open days will provide prospective candidates with a chance to find out more about a career with one of the most dynamic airlines in the world.”
Applicants for cabin crew positions have to be at least 21 years old at the time of possible recruitment and are requested to bring an up-to-date curriculum vitae (CV) in addition to a full-length and head-and-shoulders photographs. Candidates need to have a minimum arm reach of 212cm to reach and fluency in written and spoken English. Previous experience in the service or hospitality industries will prove advantageous.
Emirates currently serves 123 destinations around the globe, with more route launches planned over the coming months. It is due to its rapid, dynamic expansion that Emirates is seeking 3,800 new cabin crew globally, this financial year. Emirates offers diversified job activity onboard with a truly international team: over 12,000 flight attendants, from more than 120 countries, speaking over 50 languages.
Emirates’ Dublin – Dubai route launch has emerged as one of its most successful, connecting Ireland to Dubai and onward destinations such as Melbourne, Perth, Sydney, Kuala Lumpur, Seychelles, Sri Lanka and India.
