Absolutely. How could I forget to mention rule #1? It's part of: Don't believe FleetStat or the "tentative", heck even your official brief is subject to change at any time. All part of the fun. For most people. Most of the time. You will find out very soon.

Also, expect to work. Hard. Any time to socialise or play professional tourist is a bonus and quite rare these days. Expect to be tired a lot. Don't be afraid to report fatigued if needed. But maybe wait until out of probation. Instead get the captain to make the call. Just to be safe.

thank you for the kind words and advice.

I always had the suspicion that this job would involve long duty hours and minimum rest, mulitple changes in the shcedule at the last minute etc

Just keen to get flying again.

According to information from Kura current screening window is open only for those guys who were rejected in the initial stage of the most recent screening or those who were not rejected more than once before.

Thanks to all for the invaluable help and encouragement here.
I first applied last year and got rejected after a poor performance on the CUT-E tests. Someone said - don't get disheartened show some commitment.
I did, I applied again a few months ago again when a new job wasn't quite working out the way it probably should have (all the usual private owner problems) and made it through to phase 3,
I was amazed at how varied the candidates were from guys who had been flying freight to young guys on regional turboprops and me, an experienced person in Biz Av. Not everyone makes it through and the focus is very much on making sure you're right for the company and the company fits you. It's a difficult process but preparation is definitely the key - have some good stories for your competence questions and expect to think on your feet. The sim was straight forward as were the tech questions.
Most importantly be yourself and be honest (still positive though!).
Got the good call the next day
I'm really looking forward to starting, what a great first experience to joining a company.

Thanks guys, I saw that post about recruitment opening up only again just yesterday but thought I had missed it again (25th Oct-1st Nov). Subscribed and keeping a look out.

I understand at the moment NJs is hiring for Europe FOs on EASA licence, but are the UK based FOs on UK licences or is this an extension of the NJs EUrope? Is NJs UK a separate AOC?

As it was explained to me, EASA licence is a must but having a UK licence as well helps a lot.

I have only seen EASA licence for the applications. So I figured that like most companies with UK bases and UK contracts that there is a requirement for the pilots to have UK CAA licences and the European bases and European contracts to have EASA licences. For myself I no longer have an EASA, only UK so this could be a sticking point.

Has there been recruitment in the passed (post brexit) for UK based FOs?

Yup. I just went through it. Like I say, if you have EASA you're fine but it's beneficial to have both. I'm just finishing the process of getting my UK licence back as a returner. I'm not sure what the route will be to get an EASA licence off the back of your UK one if there even is one yet (I suspect there will be but it's going to take a while to sort these kind of things out).
