Virgin Atlantic has announced it will be recruiting 400 new cabin crew members.
The airline welcomed more than 750 returning cabin crew in 2021 who were placed in a holding pool and says more than 230 are set to return in the first quarter of 2022.
The carrier says it is now able to recruit externally for the first time in nearly two years. The roles will be part of an initial six-month fixed term contract with the view to extend and candidates from all backgrounds are encouraged to apply.
Estelle Hollingsworth, Virgin Atlantic’s Chief People Officer, said: “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.
“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.
“We champion difference and individuality, and it’s by encouraging all of our people to truly be themselves at work that we uphold an inclusive environment where they each can thrive.
“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.”
Applications are now open on the Virgin Atlantic cabin crew recruitment website.
