Easyjet is planning a major recruitment drive for cabin crew with the majority of new staff set to be based at Gatwick.
The low-cost airline wants to take on more than 1,200 permanent and fixed-term cabin crew to help fulfil its growth plans over the next few years – more than half of these new recruits will be based at Gatwick.
The airline currently employs around 6,900 cabin crew and its new intake will be largest in Easyjet’s 21-year history.
The latest recruitment drive comes after Easyjet announced it would be employing more than 450 pilots earlier this year.
Tina Milton, Easyjet’s head of cabin service, said: “We’re delighted to be opening recruitment for more than 1,200 cabin crew positions today.
“Easyjet is a fantastic company to work for with everyone across the airline working together as one team to ensure we provide the highest standard of service for our customers.
“We’re looking forward to welcoming more people into our growing team.”
