As it battles back against coronavirus travel restrictions, long-haul carrier Virgin Atlantic launched an urgent recruitment campaign to fill 400 additional cabin crew roles.
Urgent Recruitment Campaign
In 2021, the airline welcomed over 750 returning cabin crew who were placed in a holding pool following Covid-related layoffs, with another 230 anticipated to return in the first quarter of 2022.
For the first time in nearly two years, the airline is free to recruit externally given the significant measures being done to alleviate travel restrictions around the world.
Virgin Atlantic is a firm believer in everyone’s ability to conquer the world, and as an equal-opportunity employer, it is committed to creating a more diverse and inclusive workplace.
Applicants of all ages, genders, ethnicities, sexual orientations, disabilities, religions, and beliefs are encouraged to apply and work in an inclusive environment where coworkers are encouraged to be themselves.
Virgin Atlantic Chief People Officer, Estelle Hollingsworth said,
“We’re committed to supporting diversity both on the ground and on board, so are seeking people from all backgrounds who aspire to be the friendly, smiling and professional face that is the airline – with the iconic Virgin Atlantic style and flair.”
A daring spirit, a passion to explore new places and cultures, a positive attitude, and a desire for providing meaningful experiences to each customer are required from successful applicants.
The positions will be filled on a 6-month fixed-term contract with the possibility of extension.
Aside from the great benefits of being able to travel the world and frequently visit cities such as New York City, Los Angeles, and the Caribbean, the airline’s cabin crew receive regular award-winning training to help them advance their careers in the travel industry and beyond.
Estelle Hollingsworth added,
“It’s the best jobs that make people fly, and we couldn’t be more excited to be welcoming so many new cabin crew members to the skies with our recruitment drive.”
“Being part of our incredible cabin crew is an adventure, with travel around the world and new experiences waiting at every destination. We welcome anyone interested in this exciting new career journey to apply now.”
