Friendly low fare airline, Jet2.com has today announced a unique employment initiative at its bases in Manchester, Leeds, Newcastle and their new East Midlands base in a bid to train, and recruit, 100 new cabin crew for the summer 2010 season.
The successful completion of a new five-week course, backed by the Aviation Academy (Craven College), guarantees students a fixed-term contract with Jet2.com starting this summer until 1st November 2010 and includes competitive cabin crew salary and first class training in association with the Aviation Academy.
Applications for places on the courses are made through the airlines recruitment site www.jet2.com/jobs with selection days taking place from January to March 2010 at the Aviation Academy at Leeds Bradford International Airport. Successful candidates will then proceed to enrolment onto the five-week course.
Philip Meeson, boss of Jet2.com, commented: We are looking to employ approximately 100 new cabin crew members for summer 2010, and our latest initiative is the perfect way to ensure we recruit staff trained to our high standards.
The new roles are available across four of our bases at Leeds Bradford, Newcastle, Manchester and our new base East Midlands where we aim to build on our existing crew of outstanding individuals who genuinely love their job!
Joanne Mills, Aviation Project Manager at Craven College said, This unique course, developed in conjunction with Jet2.com, offers a fantastic opportunity to embark on a career within the airline industry, and I am sure it will be extremely popular.
The academy offers the very best training which includes safety procedures, emergency situations such as fire-fighting and evacuating a cabin, medical emergencies and passenger welfare and customer service. All practical elements are taught with lessons at the Aviation Academy, within Leeds Bradford Airport using Jet2.com aircrafts.
