A small amount of recruitment (numbers uncertain). Calls for interview will probably be based on recommends from current employees.

Still some form of recruitment and that's nice to see. Hopefully more to follow everywhere in a few months.

Any news for those who applied with recommendations from current employees of DHL UK?

Or is all recruitment on hold?

Closing date was 31.12. so I guess they will now review the applications and then figure out how many pilots will be required with the consequences of Brexit.

Strange, ppjn is saying something different.

I think someone in DHK hr is keen to keep ppjn updated - latest update yesterday. My reading of this is ‘we are recruiting a small number of pilots this year. We can now fill those spaces from our preselected hold pool and employee recommends. Please don’t send us any more CVs’.

There is no running commentary within the company. These are my best guesses. I may be wrong!

Well, we’re still working. TBH at the moment my biggest worry is eating up Schengen days at work limiting my opportunities for European holidays.

5th freedom seems to be an issue at the moment, but that should be solved within a few weeks. With a UK and a EU base employment will be a bit limited as changes between the bases will be very difficult.

Does it mean that now all of DHL Air UK rotations will start and begin in EMA rather than BRU or LEJ?

No, there is no change with the bases or the rotations so far, I don't know which rotations are actually affected or even if any.
There might be 1-2 rotations which have been changed to EAT and others to DHK due to that, but that happens all the time anyway.

Rotations. Well, I’m in my 19th year of this and I still don’t really know. Does the rotation go with the crew? So I work by reporting and finishing at EMA, usually by jump seat to/from LEJ over a multi day period. Someone else will report and finish in LEJ.

Does the rotation belong to the ac? The ac on any night might go eg WAW LEJ NTE, but a crew would start on that WAW LEJ and then pick up another ac eg LEJ MAD. Apart from Sun night an ac would rarely start and/or finish in LEJ (or EMA or BRU). The ac might go EDI EMA LEJ MXP. One crew do EDI EMA, another EMA LEJ and yet another LEJ MXP.

Clear as mud. All I really know that is important is that our 757 operation continues on its merry little way.

I guess just a few, I can imagine they got more than 100 recommendations.

Seems they have been contacting people who were in the hold pool from earlier, but only those with +70t experience.
As for the new recommendations, I have no clue if they have been calling some one.
