  2. Hi . Greetings from maldives. I am looking forward to join etihad airways. I have. Few questions. I have a visible scar on my face . Will hire with it ? I have studied up ti IGCSE would it be a problem? They dont do assessment days in our country. In this case if I apply to another location, will they consider hiring?

    1. Hi there,

      Firstly to answer your question on applying to a different location – as long as you have the relevant permissions and paperwork to work and live in the country of the base you are applying to this should not be a problem.

      Although the airlines ask for you to have an education to GCSE level they will take a lot of other things into account, like your work and life experience, and your character and suitability for the role. You might find our article useful on this.

      Regarding your scar this may not prevent you from being hired, and it may depend on how severe and obvious the scarring is, and whether it will heal and improve with time.
