Will there be any DEC recruitment for UK bases? Non-rated?

It's on the easyJet careers website. Will be more of a selection day than a roadshow I think.

BigDave, I doubt it - there will be plenty of Brits in the crappy bases waiting for transfer back home, just like in RYR.

I'm sure the details will be available in due course, and in respect of UK based DECs, I happen to know of at least 3 from EK going to U2 based at LGW, 2 rated, 1 not.

Beware of LGW. It's a nightmare. Anyone remember "Groundhog Day"

Only consider moving if you have family reasons to go - that I can understand.

If you have some romantic notion of sleeping in your own bed every night then have a closer look at the contract/working life.

The bases on offer to DEC, are on offer for a reason.

If you think that EK doesn't respect you, or that you have a hard life here, just you try jumping into the LCC world in Europe nowadays.

Xulu, keep drinking the kool aid, I'm guessing you've not been here that long, perhaps you've managed to get leave and most likely you haven't had to endure the 330 nor the recent 777 rosters.
Have a look at seniority list, yes it is increasing, but there are plenty who are here with a lot more to give up than you who are heading back to EU LCC world, because it offers something that EK never will.....give it time, and even you will figure out what that is.

MM, I agree with Zulu. Unless you have recently been in one, you would not believe what passes for normality in a European LCC, especially if you'e a contractor. There are valid reasons to make the jump, but terms and conditions or quality of how you are treated are not amongst them. The only real benefits are if you can get a home base and the patterned rosters, but the work rate is higher as you still hit over 900 hours all summer long but doing 4-6 sector days into parochial airfields with terrain, tiny runways and aprons, minimal ATC and approach aids, often in uncontrolled airspace, onto ice rinks in fog all winter, often with a 200hr cadet. If you think it's an easier life or that you'll be treated better, you're in for a rude awakening.

What's it actually come to that we're now comparing ourselves to LCC's - quite sad really!!

Will it be possible to meet them without doing the selection?
I need to remain here till summer 2018/19 to let my son finish the school.

They'll use it as an excuse to cut pay, but it shouldn't affect anything. Sterling and Euro have both gone down, the news reporting the Euro has dropped more. But given that, Morocco , Switzerland and Scandinavia aside, all their business is in the Euro and Sterling area, it shouldn't matter much. RYRs biggest headache now will be the relative jump in buying Boeing, but EZY don't have that worry (OK, some parts will come from outside the EU, so there will be a cost increase in new jets, but not much).

From what I've heard it's by invitation only. You have to apply beforehand to attend, not open to the public.
