Jet2.com – the UK’s third largest airline operating more than 110 Boeing and Airbus aircraft – has launched a Pilot Apprentice Scheme.
Successful candidates onto the scheme will spend between 9 and 12 months learning about Jet2.com’s business before embarking on flying training.
“We believe that a full understanding of our company is a huge advantage to new pilots embarking on a career with Jet2.com,” said Rob Clark, aircrew manager at Jet2.com.
“We invest in developing your knowledge and relationship with the whole company.”
Apprentices will spend time at Jet2.com’s commercial and operational headquarters as well as working behind the scenes at Leeds Bradford Airport.
“One day you may be helping the engineers change a carpet on one of our brand new 737s and the next you might be listening to the social media team explaining how we engage with our customers. In all you will experience around 37 different departments,” continued Rob Clark.
“Candidates should demonstrate that they are keen to commit to Jet2.com and embrace the ethos and values of our company. We are looking for people with strong interpersonal and customer service skills, who can demonstrate initiative and work as part of one team.
“We may ask you to be located at any one of our UK or Spanish bases during your time as a pilot apprentice so flexibility is key. Take some time to learn about our company online and understand how we create memories for our customers.
“If you feel you can make a positive contribution, we would very much like to hear from you. Our next intake is never very far away.”
