Emirates seeks to boost cabin crew numbers with recruitment drive

Emirates is looking to add 5,000 more to its global cabin crew with this year’s recruitment drive, designed primarily for fresh graduates, those with a year or so of hospitality or customer service experience, and individuals keen to embark on a globetrotting career.

The new cabin crew recruitment drive comes as Emirates begins to take delivery of its eagerly anticipated A350s from mid-year and the Boeing 777-Xs starting in 2025.

Emirates aims to hire 5,000 more cabin crew staff during its recruitment drive this year

In 2024, Emirates’ recruitment team will host open days and assessments in more than 460 cities across six continents. Last year’s recruitment drive saw the airline hiring 8,000 cabin crew at events in 353 cities, bringing its cabin crew numbers to 21,500.

New cabin crew recruits will undergo an intense eight weeks of training in delivering the highest standards of hospitality, safety and service. Trained in Emirates’ facility in Dubai, cabin crew will learn invaluable transferable skills like communications, initiative and leadership qualities, and develop the ability to work effectively in a multicultural team, the focus to stay mentally strong and calm under pressure.

With access to the latest training programmes and LinkedIn courses, cabin crew can progress in their career by completing exacting training and assessments – they also have the opportunity to apply for internal vacancies throughout the Emirates Group.

Benefits for Emirates’ cabin crew include a competitive, tax-free salary and flying pay, eligibility for profit share, hotel stays and layover expenses, concessional travel and cargo, annual leave, annual leave ticket, furnished accommodation, transportation to and from work, medical, life and dental insurance coverage, laundry services, discounted flight tickets for family and friends, and more.
