Emirates and Etihad Airways have a number of events lined up next month to add to their cabin crew members.

Emirates will be holding recruitment days in Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth, Sydney, Buenos Aires, and Brussels among others.  Some of the days are by invitation only and short listed candidates will be invited.

Etihad has also scheduled 11 recruitment days to be held next month, seeking individuals to join as cabin crew.

The international recruitment days will take place in five different cities around the world, including CV drop assessments in Kiev, London, Belgrade, Milan and Rome.

In Abu Dhabi, the airline will hold invitation-only assessments on February 4, 11, 18 and 25 and open days for food and beverage managers and inflight chefs on February 9 and 23.

 Successful candidates at Emirates ideally get shared cabin crew accommodation with own bedroom. Profit sharing schemes, exchange rate protection scheme, professional specialist allowances also make up a part of the package. However, these benefits depend upon the role and/or applicant’s unique personal circumstance.

Transportation to and from the airport and other standard non-cash elements like annual leave, leave tickets, end of service gratuity, medical and insurance form a part of the package. On leaving the company, an employee is entitled to an end of service gratuity or provident scheme payment, whichever is higher.

Education support allowance is given to staff in more senior positions and eligible UAE National and GCC citizens are enrolled into their respective government pension scheme, with employee and company contributions payable.

Etihad Airlines promises to offer a “fantastic tax-free salary which is competitive within the industry and reviewed on a regular basis.”

Besides this, free accommodation is provided in a modern shared fully-furnished apartment, with your own private facilities. “Everything is provided for you to ensure that you have a safe, secure and comfortable home in Abu Dhabi,” mentions the airline.

Transportation from accommodation to the airport for flight duties is given and then to bring you back home again after your flight.

Cabin crew members have access to Etihad swimming pools, health clubs and fitness centres at no cost, and reduced rate massage, hairdressing and beauty treatments to keep you looking your best.

Leading airline travel benefits include unlimited personal travel at special rates, an annual leave ticket and generous concessions for family and friends to use. Free private medical insurance and life/accident insurance is also included.
