posted on 12th January 2022 by Eddie Saunders

Today, Virgin Atlantic has opened applications to recruit 400 new cabin crew to take to the skies in the famous red-hot uniform.

The roles will be part of an initial 6-month fixed term contract with the view to extend.

Applicants from all backgrounds, no matter age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, disability, religion or beliefs are encouraged to apply.

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.”
