We have announced our latest recruitment drive, with over 3,000 jobs up for grabs across the UK and Europe in a variety of positions.

More than 2,000 jobs are located across our nine UK bases – in Flight Deck, Cabin Crew and Ground Operations roles – and a nationwide roadshow will support a huge recruitment drive to fill these positions. Dates of these recruitment roadshows can be found below.

The announcement comes as we continue to grow in Summer 19, with over 12 million seats on sale, a 12% capacity increase. Our Summer 19 programme will see us launch three brand new destinations (Bourgas in Bulgaria, Izmir in Turkey and Chania in Crete).

To support this growth and to continue our track record of delivering award-winning customer service, we are looking to recruit passionate and talented individuals to fill 100 Flight Deck, 1,000 Cabin Crew and more than 1,000 Ground Operations positions in the UK alone.

The Flight Deck roles are targeted at experienced Pilots with a strong training record and the commitment, energy and flexibility required to deliver the best service to our customers.

The Ground Operations Team will be responsible for ensuring that flights depart safely and on time. Working as part of a team of Customer Helpers, they work hard to ensure that customers have the perfect start to a lovely holiday.

Aspiring Cabin Crew members will be expected to deliver a consistently high level of safety and a VIP service to customers, working closely with the Flight Deck and the rest of the Crew to make every flight memorable.

On top of these UK roles, there are more than 1,000 positions available across Europe with and Jet2holidays. 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.

We are also looking to recruit more than 450 colleagues in Customer Helper positions right across Europe. Our customer helpers work in our fantastic sun and city destinations and airports across Europe and the Mediterranean, helping and caring for holidaymakers to ensure that they have a problem free and relaxing time on their well-deserved holidays.

Finally, we are also recruiting more than 300 people to support our free Resort Flight Check-in service overseas. This is a safe and secure service which allows Jet2holidays customers to drop off their bags at their hotel before going to the airport for their flight home. It means customers have extra time to enjoy themselves at their resort without lugging suitcases around, and it also means they enjoy a speedier journey through to airport security. The service has expanded to over 250 hotels in nine destinations, so we are looking for Drivers, Baggage Loaders and Customer Helpers to help support this growth and continue delivering a great service for customers.

Steve Heapy, CEO of and Jet2holidays said: “This is our biggest ever recruitment drive, and once again demonstrates our commitment to investing in our customers and in people’s careers. The success of our award-winning business is down to the hard work of our fantastic colleagues, and we are looking forward to meeting passionate people to join our expanding team.”

These positions for Summer 2019 will be advertised from September 2018. To see all the jobs available visit
