IRISH AIRLINE giants Ryanair are looking to increase staffing levels by more than 3500 employees with a major recruitment drive throughout Spain during the month of May.
The low cost airline arrived in Spain earlier this week and will stay until the end of May seeking to recruit new cabin crew for its flights.
In addition to 2,000 cabin crew members, Ryanair wants to employ 1,000 pilots, 250 aircraft engineers and will promote 300 in-house officials.
Roadshows will be held in Málaga, Granada, Valencia, Sevilla, Barcelona and Madrid in a bid to take on more staff as part of its plan to expand the payroll by 3,550 over the course of 2017.
The Irish carrier has admitted its future investment in the UK is uncertain in light of Brexit, but this appears to be proving no barrier to its European continent-wide growth.
Ryanair started life in 1985 headed by current CEO Michael O’Leary, with a single-prop plane flying between Dublin and London.
Now, considered to be one of the World’s fastest growing airline groups, they currently hold bases in 84 European airports, including Alicante, Valencia, Murcia, Almeria and Castellon in our region.
Those seeking a job as a cabin crew member do not need any previous experience, since they will be fully trained once taken on, and the package includes major travel perks.
For anyone interested in attending one of the roadshows , visit the airline’s recruitment page on their website for exact locations. However, the dates are as follows: Granada on Wednesday, May 3; Barcelona on Thursday, May 4; Madrid on Wednesday, May 10; Málaga or Sevilla on Friday, May 19; Valencia on Thursday, May 25, or Madrid or Barcelona on Friday, May 26.
