Don’t think there’s a portal as such, but I think there’s an email address on ppjn

More than one and less than eight. My guess would be 4 or 5. Also more 767s. Why do you ask?

Any truth to the rumour that interviews are currently paused, but they still need around 30 to 40 crews?

I guess you applied for an FO position? As the advert is only looking for FO'S
You might not be out of the running yet either way, it doesn't seem to be a particularly fast recruitment process.
And from colleagues who had interviews/sim checks etc, seems they go through the applications in the order they received them. (But that's just a guess)
Im currently waiting myself, they're very friendly bunch though. You could always ask if your application was still under consideration

Hey,
any more infos where to apply? I havent found a link on DHKs homepage, just on several jobseekers pages.
Now it says UK Licence. Are there no chances for EASA licence holders (12 months conversion time) like in the last job posting?

Apply by clicking on the button in the ad which says ‘Apply Now’. Licence conversion can take a lot longer than you think, so feel free to apply with EASA licence but I don’t think you’ll get very far. Do you have the right to live/work in the UK?

Any Intel on when the next round of interviews will be Deltahotel?

Was thinking I might be called for an interview soon based on the process some colleagues followed. But not heard anything again for quite a while now

Hi. I believe recruitment to be ongoing but also for the expanding 767 fleet. We’re not getting a running commentary other than seeing crew numbers increase on the DoJ list but I guess they will prioritise the fleet most in need at the time based on ac introduction into service. Reading between some lines (the latest 777 job ad eg) the immediate 777 need seems to be for FOs - you don’t say for which seat you applied. I doubt if this helps much. If I find out anything else I’ll post it.

It helps massively and is very much appreciated!
I applied for left seat 777 & as you can probably tell I'm very keen to join.

Just trying to workout if I'm still in the running

As with most airlines personal recommends always help. Probably shouldn’t but I’m sure they do - do you have any contacts in DHK? Maybe know someone we’ve recently accepted who could advocate for you? Would you consider applying via the latest ads for RHS and explain your situation in the covering letter? Don’t know if any of this helps - throwing thoughts in the air.

I know one person who joined in this round of recruitment that's it 😬.
But he only has limited info at the moment.

Was considering applying for the FO position, but would like to know the Captain positions were filled before I do.
Otherwise might find myself in a awkward situation

I'm afraid I have no insight on that, other than the new job ad would indicate a need for RHS rather than LHS. At some point (hopefully soon) existing DHK pilots from both seats will start to migrate from 767 to 777 (which is the right thing to do). Good luck with whatever you decide!

Yes hopefully although seems some people are very happy on the 767.
Good luck to you and thanks again
