Before you start the easyJet Recruitment Process
You’ll need a copy of your current CV saved in either Microsoft Word or PDF format.
Step 1 –The Application Form
The first step in the easyJet Cabin Crew recruitment process is to fill out the online application.
Check our Cabin Crew Jobs Board to access the position that you want to apply for.
The airline only accepts CVs through their application portal. You’ll be asked to create a user ID, and fill out a simple application form along with a few easy ‘tick box’ competency questions.
The easyJet recruitment process uses specialised software to scan your CV and match it against the requirements they have for Cabin Crew. So it’s really important your CV is up to scratch!
We can help with this – our Cabin Crew CV Review service will tell you what you might have missed out and how you can improve your CV to make it stand out from the crowd!
Once you’ve completed and submitted the application you’ll be sent an email confirming your application has been received.
Step 2 – The Online Tests
If your application meets the basic requirements you’ll be sent an invitation via email to take an online verbal reasoning, situational judgement and workplace behaviour tests. Remember to check your spam folder in case this slips through the net!
Full instructions are provided, and you’ll be given the chance to complete some practice questions before you start.
It’s important to be prepared:
- Set aside time for the assessment when you know you are unlikely to be disturbed
- Try to complete the assessment in a quiet place away from distractions
- Equip yourself for taking notes with pens/pencils, paper and a calculator
Nervous about this stage? It’s normal to find it a bit daunting!
Don’t worry though, we have you covered. Our Cabin Crew Ability (psychometric) tests workbook is filled with practice questions (and answers!) to help you breeze through these types of tests when it counts.
Step 3 – Next steps in the Recruitment Process
If you’re successful you’ll receive an email inviting you to the next stage in the easyJet cabin crew recruitment process – the Assessment Day.
Because of the volume of applications the airline receives this may take a little time to be sent, so try not to panic if it doesn’t come through straight away.
Step 4 – The Assessment Day
Next in the process is the assessment day. You might feel a bit anxious, especially if you haven’t attended one of these before.
You can give yourself a head start by checking out our Cabin Crew Assessment Day eBook, which is bursting with information to help you shine on your assessment day.
You’ll be informed of the date, time and location, and the day can last up to 8 hours.
Typically the easyJet assessment day will include:
- A height check
- Various presentations by easyJet staff and crew
- 2-4 group exercises (usually these include a fun ‘icebreaker’ type exercise and a mixture of group discussions and problem solving tasks)
You’ll have the chance to ask existing crew any questions you might have during the day too!
There will be various ‘cuts’ of candidates during the day, following the group exercises. But if you make it through you’ll be allocated a one to one interview slot for the afternoon.
If you don’t make it through to the interview stage don’t be despondent. You’ve already done really well just making it through to the assessment day stage, as competition for easyJet crew is really tough!
Step 5 –The Interview
This final interview will last around 30-40 minutes and contains more questions to assess your suitability for the role.
This gives you the opportunity to really prove yourself to the recruiters. You can reference examples from your past experiences and give detailed answers to show that you have the skills that they are looking for.
Preparation is absolutely key here!
This is your big chance to convince the recruiters that YOU are the person that the airline wants on their crew. It’s never too early to get ready – see our guide here.
Following the interview your whole application and performance will be considered.
Because easyJet tends to employ a larger amount of candidates at a time quite often successful applicants will be placed in a ‘holding pool’.
Don’t worry if this happens to you – the airline states that it guarantees to place you in a cabin crew position within 12 months, and while you wait they will use this time to carry our the final pre-employment checks and organise your training.
You’ll be allocated an ‘On-board Co-ordinator’ who will be your point of contact during this time.
The checks will include following up references, criminal record checks and examining your work background for the last five years (including any gaps which must be accounted for).
You’ll also have to have a straightforward medical examination done to show you’re fit to fly.
After this you’ll be given a date for beginning your pre-employment training at the easyJet Academy at Luton Airport. You’ll be given some online e-learning coursework to do at home before you begin too.
