Are people from the UK eligible? I would have thought not because they don't have the right to work in the EU now.

we have right to work in Ireland though? Thatís the confusing part as agreement in the Common Travel Area laws. I donít know if this was ever clarified with aer lingus themselves, but I believe UK passport holders can work in Ireland.

True, I'm just confused because it says "Eligible to live and work permanently in the EU/Ireland", that's not clear whether it's either or both. I would have presumed both. I know non-UK residents couldn't apply to TUI, for example.

The advertisement states you must have the right to work in Ireland/EU. I would definitely contact Aer Lingus to double check. No point spending money and time to come over for interview if you're not eligible.

I contradicted myself in my last post so Iíll post again, after some research it would seem the IRISH/EU would mean one or the other. By putting Ireland in there I think it shows that UK citizens are eligible, otherwise they probably would have just put EU. I think someone mentioned on here previous years UK citizens could apply too. But Iím not too sure

just had clarification from Aer Lingus, UK passport holders are eligible. I wonder now how many UK passport holders were put off with all the EU talk!

Hey guys, I was just wondering if everyone who's applied for this program has got a link for this assessment. I submitted my application form on the 5th but haven't really heard back from them other than a mail that says"we are experiencing high volumes........" I just want to know if my application was considered or not. Are they still going to send out more assessments to other people or have I lost it this year?

I know that a few people's assessment invites went to their spam folder. It's definitely worth checking in there!

okayÖ I know I did very well in the numerical section but maths is kinda my forte but the verbal stuff not so much and I didnít do too bad in some of the games. Did anyone know what level they got to in the obstacle/crash game? I donít wanna give too much away incase there are others here who havenít done it yetÖ.

What's the consensus regarding the Class 1 medical. Has anyone already have one? Or is everyone waiting until the assessments to arrange one? Does anyone know whether they expect candidates to have one during the assessments stage?

No I wouldn't worry about it - they put you through one (as you probably know), but I don't know if it would give you that much of an edge. There have been people who have progressed through and failed the medical so it seems that they don't pay any heed to that. Disclaimer: Could be talking out of my behind!

I wouldn't focus on the medical too much. The initial class 1 is very expensive and it takes an entire day to complete. I don't think they expect anyone to have it. The only people who may have one is those already studying for ATPLs

Hi guys, I just got sent the assessment. Just wondering those that have completed it, was there a video interview at the end, like the last few years?.
Thanks

Hi guys, just completed the assessments now and not feeling too confident. I found the wing challenge as well as the deductive reasoning test particularly difficult but who knows. Best of luck to everyone that applied
