Jet2.com is delighted to announce the opening of exciting opportunities for Pilot Apprentices to join our Team. Working with and understanding all of our business areas, the Pilot Apprentice programme provides an outstanding opportunity to develop a long term career with an award winning leisure airline and tour operator.
This is an incredibly exciting time for Jet2.com and Jet2holidays. We have recently celebrated a major milestone, as our first ever flights and holidays took off from Birmingham and London Stansted Airports on the same day. We are continuing to bring our Friendly Low Fares and great value package holidays to more customers than ever. We have also taken delivery of 14 of our 34 brand new Boeing 737-800NG Aircraft, with more to follow. Further, our family friendly formula has seen us voted the UK’s best airline by users of TripAdvisor and the UK’s Most Loved Airline by users of Skytrax.
The Pilot Apprentice programme will begin at Leeds Bradford International Airport and our Commercial Office in Leeds, where you will undertake a planned schedule geared towards giving you maximum exposure to the full range of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays business areas. This includes (among others) our Contact Centre, Operations, Finance, Human Resources, Jet2holidays and Engineering Teams. You will then support a wide range of Operational Teams, undertaking duties as Cabin Crew, Flight Planning and in our Training Centre in Bradford as well as the Crew rooms across our UK Bases.
On successful completion of the Apprenticeship, Jet2.com will provide you with a fully bonded Type Rating, and you will enter the world of commercial aviation as a Second Officer.
Successful candidates will already have a UK Issued Frozen ATPL Pilots Licence, Current Class One Medical and a valid UK driving licence. Along with this, you will have completed an MCC and JOC course and have strong ATPL Theory exam results. You will have also maintained your flying ‘currency’ through training and/or regular flying. You will have excellent verbal and written communication skills and experience of office IT systems. In addition, you must be flexible as we may require you to work from any of our 9 UK Bases.
In return, we offer a competitive salary and benefits package with fantastic opportunities for progression in a growing business.
This is a great opportunity to be part of an exciting forward thinking business. We operate scheduled leisure flights to holiday destinations in the Mediterranean, the Canary Islands and to European Leisure Cities from our 9 UK bases.
