Record-breaking Recruitment Numbers for Wizz Air
Discount airline Wizz Air hired some 2,500 new cabin crew members in the first nine months of the year, according to a press release sent to the Budapest Business Journal.
The airline says that it is doing everything it can to overcome the industry-wide staff shortage and meet its target of having 20,000 employees work above the clouds by 2030.
"Recruiting 2,500 new cabin crew colleagues in the first 9 months of the year is a huge achievement. This number is another sign that Wizz is a key player in the revitalization of the aviation sector. With every new team member our airline recruits, we support the local labor market, while offering those who join us an exciting, eventful, international career," said András Radó, senior recruitment manager at Wizz AIr.
"We also offer our future colleagues fast career progression and secure development opportunities in Hungary and beyond. We look forward to meeting more new applicants at our recruitment events and to further expanding the Wizz family," he added.
Wizz Air expects applications from experienced cabin crew and newcomers alike. The airline will provide free training for selected candidates, which will last between four and six weeks, depending on their experience, and new recruits will receive a training allowance for the entire duration of the training.
In addition to a friendly and customer-oriented personality, Wizz Air is looking for candidates who meet a few key basic requirements. These include being over 18 years of age, being able to speak and write English well, being able to swim, having no criminal record, and not having tattoos on any part of the body not covered by the uniform.
After successfully participating in one of the airline's recruitment days, candidates will receive a job offer from the airline, so they don't have to wait weeks or months or go through a lengthy recruitment process. Once selected, candidates can be trained and qualified to take to the skies in just eight weeks (including training and exams).
