Dubliner Mandy Kelly, aviation HR Specialist with Emirates, will attend the roadshow to help answer questions, and is encouraging both women and men to attend. “Dubai has so much to offer and there is always something to do from its unique leisure and cultural attractions to restaurants from around the world and amazing beaches. It’s a wonderful city for families, having lived here for 17 years and with two young sons I can honestly say it has so much to offer everybody.
“We have both male and female pilots, including those from Ireland currently flying with us and are looking to grow our team. When flying for Emirates, you will be based in the heart of Dubai and will start your career onboard one of the world’s most modern fleets, on the industry-leading Boeing 777 or the flagship Airbus A380. We’re encouraging pilots to come along for a chat with our recruitment team in Dublin and we’d be delighted to answer any questions. Partners and children are also very welcome as we completely understand a move to Dubai is something that involves the whole family.”
The roadshow takes place from 10am at the  Hilton Dublin Airport, Malahide Road, Northern Cross, Co Dublin. Interested pilots who are unable to attend the roadshow can also make an online application at www.emirates.com/pilots
Meanwhile, Hainan, which commences services between Dublin and Beijing this summer, wants an Account Manager to develop “long-term relationships with your portfolio of assigned customers” and “meet and exceed revenue targets while lowering cost of sale”. The new manager will also need to develop marketing and sales plans to target corporate and leisure travel agencies. The ability to speak Chinese is an advantage for the job, located in Dublin.
