Before you start
You’ll need a copy of your CV to upload. Make sure you’ve saved it in MS Word or PDF format.
Step 1 –The Application Form
Check our Cabin Crew Jobs Board for the position you’d like to apply for.
Read the job description so see how well you fit with the airline’s ideal candidate – Jet2 place a huge amount of importance on customer service and in taking on friendly, bubbly and upbeat staff!
After you’ve filled out and sent your application you’ll get an email confirming it’s arrived safely with recruitment.
Step 2 – The Online Tests
If the recruitment team likes the look of your application you’ll be emailed an invitation to complete the online psychometric tests. You can find out more about them in our guide here.
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 be asked questions about English, maths and customer service.
If you’re feeling a bit nervous about the online testing we can help! Our Cabin Crew Ability (psychometric) tests workbook has hints, tips and practice tests (with answers!) to make sure you’re fully prepared.
Step 3 – Phone Interview
The next step if the test results are a success 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. 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 up 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 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!
