3 September 2018: Jet2.com and Jet2holidays has announced a massive recruitment drive, with over 3,000 jobs up for grabs across the UK and Europe in a variety of positions to support the company’s growth – and over 150 of these will be based at Glasgow Airport.
To support this drive, the company is hosting a recruitment roadshow at the Holiday Inn Glasgow Airport on Wednesday 12th September, giving jobseekers the opportunity to meet with Jet2.com colleagues and find out all about the roles.
The announcement comes as the award-winning airline and tour operator continues its growth strategy, on the back of a bumper Summer ‘18. After its biggest ever programme of flights and holidays this summer, the company will increase capacity at Glasgow Airport by more than 10% in Summer ‘19, with over 950,000 seats on sale. This programme will see Jet2.com and Jet2holidays launch two brand new destinations from Glasgow Airport - Bourgas in Bulgaria and Izmir in Turkey.
To support this growth and to continue its track record of delivering award-winning customer service, the company is looking to recruit passionate and talented individuals to fill over 100 Cabin Crew and more than 50 Ground Operations positions at Glasgow Airport, in addition to vacancies in Flight Deck roles.
The Flight Deck roles are targeted at experienced Pilots with a strong training record and the commitment, energy and flexibility required to deliver the best service to customers.
The Ground Operations Team will be responsible for ensuring that flights depart safely and on time. Working as part of a team of Customer Helpers, they work hard to ensure that customers have the perfect start to a lovely holiday.
Aspiring Cabin Crew members will be expected to deliver a consistently high level of safety and a VIP service to customers, working closely with the Flight Deck and the rest of the Crew to make every flight memorable.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “This is our biggest ever recruitment drive at Glasgow Airport, and once again demonstrates our commitment to investing in our customers and in people’s careers. The success of our award-winning business is down to the hard work of our fantastic colleagues, and we are looking forward to meeting passionate people to join our expanding team.”
Francois Bourienne, Chief Commercial Officer at AGS Airports Ltd, owners of Glasgow Airport, said: “Jet2.com’s decision to create 150 jobs is fantastic news and follows the airline’s recent announcement to base an additional Boeing 737-800 aircraft here at Glasgow Airport.
“The move not only strengthens our position as Jet2.com’s largest Scottish base with seven aircraft, but this significant recruitment drive is also a welcome boost for the region’s economy and provides job-seekers with an amazing opportunity to join one of the UK’s fastest growing airlines.”
In total more than 3,000 jobs are up for grabs across the UK and Europe in a variety of positions to support the company’s growth. More than 2,000 jobs are located across the company’s nine UK bases – in Flight Deck, Cabin Crew and Ground Operations roles – and over 1,000 positions are available across Europe in Ground Operations, Overseas Operations, Cabin Crew and free Resort Flight Check-in roles.
These positions for Summer 2019 will be advertised from September 2018. To see all the jobs available visit http://www.jet2careers.com/
