Just posting an update for Melbourne base. Received the Swim Test email on Tuesday, submitted yesterday so I guess next step is medical and Ground School date. Is anyone else at the same stage? Or heard anymore news on possible dates? When I spoke to Virgin last week they mentioned they were having a big meeting next week to properly confirm the next Ground School...so guessing the next one isn't full/confirmed? I could be wrong though.

Hey 😀
I've been in the talent pool since end of march. I was hoping they do a GS in June or July so I hope to hear something soon 😀

Hey Alexis2289, Mooky1 and everyone else who has applied for Melb base
Thankyou for the updates. I attended an assessment day early April and completed the online test, but my referees have yet to be contacted. Should I Follow up or is it normal for people who attended the same assessment day to be at various different stages of the process? Thanks in advance

Hi Oscar Rufio,

It can normal to be at different stages of the process...maybe just log in and check that all your reference details are correct...eg.check the email addresses. And also get your references to check their junk emails just to ensure it hasn't gone in their. Unfortunately it is a bit of a waiting game between stages! Keep us updated though 😊

Hi Oscar
Yes everyone moves at different timeframes. I applied in Jan and the various part of the application happened till end of march untill I made the talent pool. I know people who applied last year that have been in the talent pool and people who have moved more quickly. There is no way of telling how it all work. You just have to sit tight. If you read though the thread you will see it's different for everyone. Frustrating I know. But if you made it to reference that's great and congratulations. There are hundreds that don't make it pass the application stage so stay positive and we may work together in the sky's one day 😀✈️

Thank you so much Alexis and Mooky for your replies I've double checked email addresses, asked referees to keep an eye out (in junk mail too), so it looks like I just need to hang tight a bit longer until I hear anything further. I'll keep you all posted congrats to everyone who is going through the process. It can be quite time consuming but it's super exciting also

Congrats to everyone who has made it to ground school!
I applied last week for Sydney and got an email yesterday about an assessment day.
Does anyone know when they might hold one?

Congrats Mooky that's great news!! Hopefully there is a Melbourne Ground School soon. I got an email on Tuesday that my Swim Test had been received, but no call for a medical as of yet! Keep us all updated 🙌🏼👌🏼😊

Hi everyone,

Attended an AD 2 days ago and they said that Melbourne base talent pool will be moving quite quickly now as they have to backfill all of the Crew that transitioned to the new Hong Kong route announced by Virgin! Seems like a GS for you guys will be held very soon indeed, hence being asked to do medicals! All the best and good luck
