Are the big players interested in buying smaller agencies? Well, it depends on who you ask.
TORONTO – Emirates continues to grow at a rapid pace, and it’s looking for Canadians specifically to help service new routes on its expanding network.
The world’s largest international airline, based in Dubai, is holding a Cabin Crew recruitment Open Day on Saturday, May 26 at 8 a.m. sharp at the Grand Hotel & Suites, Toronto (225 Jarvis Street). Emirates is looking for both women and men to fill new positions that have been created due to its continued growth, including the recent addition of new routes as well as additional aircraft.
While no prior experience is required, there are a number of criteria that need to be filled in order to be considered. These include a minimum of 21 years of age at the time of joining, and an arm reach of 212 cm when standing on tiptoes. More information about requirements can be found at http://www.emiratesgroupcareers.com/cabin-crew/.
Emirates’ cabin crew are offered an entire employment package, which includes benefits such as: tax-free income; free high standard shared accommodation in Dubai; free transport to/from work; medical and dental cover; and exclusive discounts on shopping and leisure activities in Dubai. It also offers attractive concessional travel benefits for cabin crew as well as their families and friends, particularly advantageous as Emirates’ global network spans six continents.
“Our cabin crew are open-minded, helpful, friendly and service-oriented and that’s what we need from candidates in order to deliver Emirates’ award-winning onboard experience to customers,” said Don McWilliam, Country Manager for Emirates in Canada. “This Open Day is a great opportunity for people to get their career off to a flying start.”
McWilliam also added that applicants need to drop in to the Open Day with an up-to-date resume in English and a recent photograph. Pre-registration is not required.
“Candidates will need to come prepared to spend the full day at the venue, if required,” he added. “Shortlisted candidates will be informed of timings for further assessments and interviews.”
This cabin crew Open Day comes on the heels of Emirates’ pilot recruitment roadshows that were held last year. The airline currently flies to 159 destinations across six continents and operates a modern fleet of 269 all wide-body aircraft. It is considered the largest global operator of the Boeing 777 and the Airbus A380 aircraft.
