Virgin Atlantic to send 400 careers flying with cabin crew recruitment drive

Virgin Atlantic has opened applications to recruit 400 new cabin crew to take to the skies.

Successful applicants will demonstrate a pioneering spirit, a desire to discover new places and cultures, a positive attitude and a passion for delivering thoughtful experiences to each customer. The roles will be part of an initial 6-month fixed term contract with the view to extend.

Virgin Atlantic claims it is committed to becoming a more diverse workplace. Applicants from all backgrounds, no matter age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, religion or beliefs are encouraged to apply.

Virgin Atlantic committed to bringing back as many people as possible following sadly losing colleagues as a result of the pandemic. In 2021, the airline welcomed more than 750 returning cabin crew who were placed in a holding pool, with more than 230 also set to return in the first quarter of 2022. Now, thanks to the positive steps being taken to ease travel restrictions around the world, the airline is able to recruit externally for the first time in nearly two years.

Estelle Hollingsworth, chief people officer, at Virgin Atlantic commented: “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.”
