Our Early Careers team and some of our pilots have been busy visiting schools from across the country, creating memories and giving pupils a taste of life working for Jet2.com.

First Officer Theo Harding, from our Leeds Bradford Airport team, paid a visit to Cottingley Primary School to meet with budding pilot Thomas and his class, while First Officer Phillip Wild headed to Burton Road Primary School in Barnsley.

Both Theo and Phillip told pupils more about who we are, what it is like working for us, what their job involves and the many career opportunities available with Jet2.com and Jet2holidays. They were also on hand to answer lots of questions and give out our pilot and cabin crew stickers for the children to wear.

Our Early Careers team also dropped in to see children at Our Lady Star of the Sea Catholic Primary School in Cheshire. Students in Reception have been busy role playing the jobs of captains and cabin crew, and the children have even created their own versions of a cockpit and aircraft in the classroom.

These visits form part of our Schools Project, which we launched in March last year. The aim of the project is to attract and develop young talent, while raising awareness of the huge array of career opportunities available at Jet2.com and Jet2holidays. To date, we have visited 450 schools and engaged with over 25,000 students in secondary schools and colleges, while supporting colleagues visiting their local primary school.
