Emirates, the Dubai-based airline is seeking to recruit 3,000 cabin crew members and 500 customer service agents to work at Dubai International Airport.
“Both jobs offer exciting opportunities for friendly, energetic, and service-oriented people to meet and interact with the world as Emirates’ brand ambassadors,” the airline said.
The recruitment drive comes just over a month after the airline started to recall thousands of cabin crew, pilots and other operational employees it laid off at the height of the pandemic last year.
Potential candidates interested in joining Emirates have been instructed to refer to the airline’s website for additional job descriptions, recruitment criteria and application process.
Cabin crew serving in Emirate’s economy class cabins are entitled to an average starting monthly salary of Dh9,770 ($2,660), based on 80 to 100 flying hours per month, according to the airline’s website. The airline covers the layover expenses, including meal allowances, hotel accommodation and transport to and from the airport.
It’s still not clear, however, how Emirates will carry out assessments and interviews as the airline previously sent recruiters to conduct in-person events in cities around the world. Pandemic restrictions might still prove to be a headache.
The airline currently flies to over 120 cities, representing 90 per cent of its pre-pandemic network, and it plans to restore 70 per cent of its capacity by the end of the year, including bringing back more of its A380 aircraft into active service.
