Jet2.com and Jet2holidays have announced its biggest recruitment drive yet, with more than 3,000 jobs up for grabs across the UK and Europe in a variety of positions to support the company’s growth.
According to Jet2.com, more than 2,000 jobs are available across the company’s nine UK bases — in Flight Deck, Cabin Crew and Ground Operations roles. To fill these roles, the company announced a recruitment roadshow from 5-19 September 2018 to give job seekers the opportunity to meet with Jet.com colleagues and find out about the roles.
In addition to these UK roles, there are more than 1,000 positions available across Europe. Of these, 500 positions are in Ground Operations roles in Spain and Portugal, with Customer Helpers, Ramp Agents and Dispatchers required to work as part of a team of Customer Helpers in airports such as Palma (Majorca), Alicante, Malaga and Faro.
The company is also looking to recruit more than 450 colleagues in customer helper positions across Europe. These customer helpers will work in the company’s sun and city destinations and airports across Europe and the Mediterranean.
The announcement comes as the group continues its growth strategy, following its biggest ever programme of flights and holidays this summer. The company will increase capacity by another 12% in the summer of 2019 with over 12 million seats on sale.
The programme will see Jet2.com and Jet2holidays launch three brand new destinations (Bourgas in Bulgaria, Izmir in Turkey and Chania in Crete) and operate over 1,200 weekly flights to 58 destinations during peak periods.
