There is no 8/6 roster. I think EAM is right on this that a block roster 9/5 would then attract a full time roster - ask at interview.

Iím EMA based so drive 1 hour at start and finish of work blocks

Whatís DHL Air UKís take on a (no-deal) brexit? I would not like to join now to find out they are not allowed to run a LEJ-CIA in a few months time on a G-reg. Let alone being paid in GBP whilst living on the continent. Have been out of DHL for a few years now but I do wonder what management has to say...

(Some of) The airplanes can ofcourse move to D or EI reg. But how about the crews?

Yes, we can see that. You can be paid in Euros at a fixed rate since September last year and if you want to know the plans about post Brexit, quite easy.....

..... ask someone at the UK parliament what their idea about Brexit is.

The management is very optimistic that we will continue like it is for at least 1 year and by then we should have an idea on how the future between EU and the UK will be and what the necessary steps are.

Sorry for disrupting - still no Brexit rumours at DHL and other freight ops? Now that flyBMI went belly up...

Flybmi not relevant to this discussion other than to say how sad it is and hope peeps find jobs quickly.

Iím sure a whole bunch of contingencies are being discussed but until the politicians get their act together and give final brexit a shape we wonít know how it will all end up.

Fair enough, I saw some relevance in UK operators active in EU bases though. Which applies to DHL UK. But - no news is still good news.

Anyone have an update on the DHL recruitment process? Have they dropped aptitude tests?

Since night work/fatigue is an issue and maybe a reason for people to move on as soon as they can(?): would ops like DHL or night freight in general be a little more generous with older applicants if they already bring shift work experience?

Thinking that if you can do the night hours/fatigue management and donít have as many other options to fly jets or make it big elsewhere (due to age), you are more likely to stick around. Would they consider that a plus enough to balance the disadvantage of being a late starter?

Good luck. Plse read through this thread - many answers in there already. I have no knowledge of the interview process, so like any normal application process. I donít know what bases are on offer so do not leave the interview without knowing which base you will be offered, what % contract will be offered and how you plan to make the base work logistically.
