Virgin Atlantic to help 350 careers take off with cabin crew recruitment drive
Virgin Atlantic has opened applications to recruit 350 new cabin crew to take to the skies in the famous red-hot uniform and deliver the airline’s world-renowned customer service.
Virgin Atlantic cabin crew are famous for ensuring a safe and memorable in-flight experience for customers as well as their personalised and friendly service. Successful applicants will demonstrate a pioneering spirit, a desire to discover new places and cultures, a positive attitude and a passion for delivering thoughtful experiences to each customer. The roles will be part of an initial 6-month fixed term contract with the view to extend.
Virgin Atlantic firmly believes that anyone can take on the world, and as an equal opportunity employer, the airline is committed to becoming a more diverse workplace. Applicants from all backgrounds, no matter age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, religion or beliefs are encouraged to apply to join an inclusive workplace* where colleagues are supported to be themselves. This inclusive approach is demonstrated by the airline’s recent policy changes to remove the need to wear make-up, allow visible tattoos as well as the choice to wear the uniform that best represents their gender identity – the first UK airline to offer colleagues these choices.
As well as the incredible perks of being able to travel the world and regularly visit destinations including New York City, Los Angeles, Shanghai, South Africa and the Caribbean, Virgin Atlantic cabin crew are offered regular award-winning training to support career development and opportunities in the travel industry and beyond.
Estelle Hollingsworth, Chief People Officer, at Virgin Atlantic commented: “We’re thrilled to be recruiting for new cabin crew members to join us in the skies. A job at Virgin Atlantic allows people to truly fly – to incredible places around the globe and to the world of opportunities both within Virgin Atlantic and beyond.
