Ryanair launches big recruitment drive

LCC needs staff as it adds 50 planes in 2017
The Irish budget carrier Ryanair has released details of an expansion plan for 2017, which it claims will add 50 aircraft to the fleet and create over 3,500 new jobs.
Ryanair’s recruitment drive will include the search for 2,000 new cabin crew, 1,000 pilots and 250 aircraft engineers, as well as promoting over 300 First Officers on its command upgrade program across its 84-base European network.
New positions will also be created in IT, ‘digital experience’, finance, marketing and other roles at the carrier’s Dublin office and at its Travel Labs Poland subsidiary in Wroclaw. The aircraft, meanwhile, will be sourced from Ryanair’s existing orders.
The growth is part of the airline’s plan to expand from 355 to more than 500 aircraft over the next five years.
