Jet2.com announces 1,700 jobs in recruitment drive

Leading leisure airline Jet2.com has announced a major recruitment drive, with a host of roadshows across the UK to fill over 1,700 Pilot, Cabin Crew and Ground Operations roles with over 100 of these at its newest base, Birmingham Airport.

To support this drive, the company is hosting a recruitment roadshow at Hilton Birmingham Metropole at the NEC on Wednesday 6th September.

The announcement comes on the back of a successful recruitment campaign for this summer, which includes flights from new bases Birmingham and London Stansted. This expansion is set to continue in Summer 18, with the company having 9.8 million seats on sale (a 13% capacity increase) opening up a wealth of exciting opportunities for a host of talented Pilots, Cabin Crew and Ground Operations colleagues alike. This biggest ever summer programme includes almost one million seats to 30 destinations from Birmingham Airport.

The roadshow has been designed to support the recruitment of Pilot, Cabin Crew and Ground Operations positions at Birmingham Airport as the company continues to grow. The roadshow will offer the chance to meet members of the Jet2.com team, receive expert advice and information about the various roles on offer with an informal chat.
