Emirates plans Thailand recruitment drive
25 Feb 10 (TravMedia.com): Emirates Airline is holding an Open Day in Thailand on March 6, 2010 at the Tawana Ramada on Surawongse Road from 9am - 4pm. as part of an international recruitment drive to find confident, service-oriented cabin crew to join its rapidly expanding workforce.
Nowadays, cabin crew on Emirates’ flights are attending to passengers who may pass through the futuristic Terminal 3 in Dubai, watch up to 1,200 channels of in-flight entertainment and devour gourmet-chef-prepared food at 40,000 feet. Customers can even take a shower and enjoy a drink in a lounge if they travel on the upper deck of the airline’s much-admired A380.
The Open Day will provide aspiring cabin-crew with information vital to a career with the world-class airline while giving candidates the opportunity to meet the recruitment team. Applicants should bring along their resume in English, one passport photo and one full-length photo.
The new group of recruits will be trained to Emirates’ world-class standard services at the Emirates Aviation College in Dubai, where it houses the airline’s academic excellence before joining over 7,500 Emirates crews from 120 countries onboard in a truly multicultural talent base made up of more than 100 different nationalities. Currently, over 500 Thais work as cabin crews at the Dubai-based international airline.
Rick Helliwell, Vice President, Recruitment, said: “With the ongoing expansion of Emirates, our cabin crew recruitment team are conducting an average of 35 selection campaigns all around the globe every month, seeking people who have the confidence to explore the world and their own capabilities. They need to have a true desire to help others and a meticulous approach to service delivery.”
Emirates offers a superb benefits package, including a competitive tax-free salary plus plying pay, high quality furnished shared accommodation, comprehensive medical coverage, generous travel benefits, free duty transport, end-of-service benefits, bonus upon completion of the first three-year contract as well as excellent professional development opportunities.
Dubai is the most modern and cosmopolitan of the Gulf cities, which is renowned for its high-class tourist facilities and its high standard of living. Apart from the relaxed and luxurious lifestyle in Dubai, Thai cabin crew can also enjoy the added bonus of a tax-free salary and shopping.
Mr Helliwell continued: “Besides good English communication skills, whether it be Madrid, Sao Paulo, Beijing or Bangkok, wherever the selection teams go, we are looking for adaptable, confident and positive people who have the team orientation to work successfully alongside others in a truly international airline.”
