Your application will take around 30 minutes to complete, including the online assessment. Read on to find out more.
Step 2 – Customer Service Mindset Assessment
It’s best to complete the tests in a quiet place if you can, away from any distractions. Keep paper, pens and a calculator handy for making notes too. You’ll complete an English language test and then answer further situational questions based on the role. We have an eBook specifically aimed at helping you pass these ability tests, which you can check out here.
Step 3 – Phone Interview
If you’re successful, the next step in the recruitment process will be a phone interview with someone from the recruitment team. The time and date will be arranged with you beforehand.
The first part of the interview will cover the basic requirements of the job, and make sure you’ve understood both these and the rules and regulations for Jet2 cabin crew.
Next you’ll be asked a few questions relating to your experiences working with the public and providing excellent customer service – make sure you have a few examples in mind for when the phone call comes!
Step 4 – The Assessment Day
If the interview goes well you’ll be invited to attend the airline’s assessment day. You’ll be given details of the date, place and time.
The Jet2 assessment days involve a presentation, a small ‘icebreaker’ exercise and a group exercise. Current Jet2 Cabin Crew will also be on standby for you to chat to and ask any questions you might have. If you stand out to the recruiters you’ll be asked to stay back for a one-to-one interview.

Step 5 –The Interview
If you’re called back for the final interview stage then well done! This is your big chance to convince the recruiters that YOU are the person they should hire.
Worried about how best to answer the questions? Have a look at our guide to the interview process.
After the interview the recruitment team will take away your whole file for evaluation. They’ll normally let you know within a week what the outcome is.
If the news is good and the airline want to take you on there are checks that need to be carried out, a background check and a medical examination.
As long as you’ve been honest in your application you’ll have nothing to worry about. Please note that you will have to cover the cost of these checks yourself.
Once the checks have been completed successfully you’ll be required to complete a five week training course at the Jet2 training centre in Bradford. The course costs £700, and you will have to arrange your own travel and accommodation.
This may seem like a lot of money upfront, however, once your employment with Jet2 starts you’ll receive a bonus of £100 per month for perfect attendance. This will be held by the airline each month and given to you as a lump sum at the end of the contract.
If you do really well during the season you’ll be likely to be given priority if you wish to reapply the following year!

I have completed the travel and tourism level 3 course at college and wondered how many airlines you could apply for at one time and could you accept the one that appeals to you the most?
If it’s your first time applying for a Cabin Crew job then you’re free to apply to as many airlines as you like! The only restrictions are on previous applicants who have been rejected from an airline, and then have to wait a specified amount of time (usually 6 months) before re-applying.
The best advice is to think about which airlines appeal to you most, and check our jobs board regularly for notifications of when recruitment is live. You might find having a look at some of our selection articles useful to get an idea of what the recruitment process involves.
Thank you, could you also choose whether you just wanted to participate in long haul or whether you wanted to stay on flights within the EU?
A lot would depend on which airline you apply to, and the routes they operate. You can state a preference but it’s not always 100% guaranteed that you’ll be allocated flights of that type, or particular routes. The best option would be to decide what kind of flights would suit you best – so if it was short-haul for example you might look at applying to some of the budget or regional airlines, for example easyJet, Ryanair, flybe or BA Cityflyer. These airlines fly European or domestic routes.
I would just like some advice on how to apply for Cabin Crew within Airlines, I have completed 2 years in college doing travel and tourism level 2 and 3, I currently have a part time job working within the Co-op as Team leader sales assistant,
Any Advice would be appreciative
For a start I would recommend that you check our jobs board regularly for the latest vacancies (you can also sign up for our text alert service) and browse through our recruitment content and blog articles for advice on the application procedure and the Cabin Crew role. Your qualification in travel and tourism is a great fit for the job, and the customer service and team-working experience from your part-time employment are both good transferable skills. Then it’s just a case of deciding which airlines you’re interested in , and applying!
