Ryanair launches 'exciting' recruitment drive for cabin crew to support pandemic recovery

RYANAIR has launched a recruitment drive for cabin crew for its UK and European bases as it recovers and rebuilds following the devastating impact of Covid-19 on the travel industry.

The Irish airline, which is headquartered in Dublin, revealed this week that it has renewed its partnership with Crewlink, who specialise in the recruitment and training of cabin crew.

Training will take place at locations throughout the UK for positions at Ryanair’s UK bases, the no-frills travel firm confirmed.

Ryanair’s Deputy Director HR – Head of Talent, Mark Duffy, said: “We are delighted to announce this cabin crew jobs drive working with our cabin crew recruitment partner, Crewlink for positions available in the UK as well as other Ryanair bases across Europe.”

He added: “These exciting opportunities offer candidates the chance to secure the best cabin crew jobs in aviation and the chance to work with Europe’s largest airline, where hard work is rewarded with fast track career opportunities.

“Ryanair Cabin Crew enjoy free training, great pay, industry leading five on, three off rosters, outstanding career development and world class training.”

Ryanair has now taken delivery of its first Boeing 737-8200 “Gamechanger” aircraft, which the firm claims will allow them to “lower costs, cut fuel consumption and lower noise and CO2 emissions”.

It has also created their new cabin crew job opportunities.

Regarding the roles now available, and who should apply, Mr Duffy added: “Throughout the pandemic Ryanair has worked closely with our people to save jobs and we are delighted to start planning for a return to growth over the coming years as we recover from the Covid-19 crisis and grow to 200m guests by FY2026.

“Suitable candidates should have excellent customer service skills and love to travel!’’.
