SYDNEY: The Dubai-based airline is looking for Australian workers and is holding Recruitment Day in Sydney this Saturday.
“It is an exciting time for us as Emirates continues to grow both globally and within Australia”, Emirates Divisional Vice President for Australasia, Barry Brown said.
Anyone interested in a cabin crew career is encouraged to attend and have any questions answered.
Well, we have a few.
On the airline’s careers page, there is mention of a required arm reach of 212cm while standing on tiptoes.
We can only assume that’s so they can reach the baggage compartments. But Emirates and Qatar are the only airlines in the world that appear to require such detailed length specifications.
Job hunters are also given some “application tips” including on how to dress for work.
A picture of a member of cabin crew can be seen applying a thick layer of red lipstick, next to the headline ‘The perfect application’.
Grooming guidelines are a big part of how assessors will pick applicants, with full-length photos sent in prior to assessment day requiring ‘visible makeup’ for the ladies.
There is a no glasses rule either, so prepare your contact lenses.
While the requirements may seem odd or possibly amusing, there are some fantastic benefits not to snigger at in becoming an Emirates cabin crew.
Tax free income for one, and attractive concessional travel benefits for family and friends across the entire Emirates global network.
By that they mean, cheaper flights to their 159 destinations.
