Not only is working as cabin crew a great way to travel and see more parts of the world, there are plenty of tempting benefits for Emirates applicants.

  • Have no visible tattoos while in uniform
  • Be “a natural team player with a personality that shines”

New employees will start their cabin crew careers with eight weeks of training in Dubai, learning about everything from customer service to safety procedures, as well as emergency medical training for situations such as CPR and emergency childbirth.

They will also have to prove their swimming ability during training, in the event of an emergency landing on water.

Cabin crew get 30 calendar days' leave a year and complimentary annual leave flight tickets.

Employees can also enjoy discounted tickets not only for themselves but for their family and friends.

Recruitment days are walk-in and you don't need to pre-register. However, it is asked that applicants follow a business attire dress code, with male applicants being clean shaven and women wearing full make-up and heels.
