Whats wrong with your current airline, why dont they want you? Its unusual for an airline to line train you and then toss you aside, unless they don't like you or you bought your hours and must have money to burn (or rich parents).
I too am in your situation and the market is bleak for 757 recruitment at the moment.The big 4 are uncertain what is happening due to recruitment and may lose jobs/planes.Try 767 operators as more chance.Try aviationjobsearch. Jet2/titan/flyjet not recruiting.DHL finished. Try that Flygobe lot.
But why not just buy some more hours! That lot must have cost you 20,000+, then TR 20,000, then training to CPL etc.

Best bet, stay where you are!

Surely you mean hour building? 250 hours of line training sounds like a lot.

Maybe he sees the writing on the wall (or perhaps the letter from Peter Owen) at XL.
I wouldn't bother with Condor unless you are a Germanic European.

Goldbird. . . You're from Iceland? And you have't heard of Atlanta Air? Forget the 757 baby jet. They take Cessna pilots with 300 hours and put them into the right seat of a 744.

Thank you guys for the info, the reason I am leaving my airline is because I was only hired over the summer during the summer schedule of the airline. Otherwise I would be happy to stay there.

I've recently obtained a 757/767 type rating and can't find a job anywhere.... can't afford the line training but would work for nothing at this stage

I did not pay anything for the rating or the hours. I started getting salary when I started training. The thing is my airline recruits people, pays for the rating and also salary during training. But first one or two years you will only get a job over the summer during a peak in operation.

Try Monarch - recruiting for most types and bases. Don't be fooled into thinking Monarch is the airline it's reputation would have you believe though. It's now an hour building airline for those young enough to move on once they have a few thousand jet hours. Still good as a first or second job though.

PS Don't worry too much about the hours requirement on the website. Many people have gotten in with minimal experience.

Try TUIfly Nordic they are looking for 757 drivers for HEL http://jobb.boarding.no/art.asp?id=314

You may also want to drop by Jet X in Reykjavik, as they will start operating a B767 soon.

Silverjet/Flyjet will no longer have Boeing 757 aircraft from October 2007 and only 767-200.

Re: JetX

Yes but who will operate the B767, since I understand their 737 and 757 are operated by Austrian and North American respectively..

Icelandair will fly for Jet X this winter on a B767 from CPH and ARN to Phuket Thailand. Jet X will not be operating a B767

Have it on very good authority that new BA outfit will be advertising for 757 crews in the VERY near future, based at ORY ..type rating preferred, but not essential,any boeing time will do...keep yr eyes peeled in Flight Int......flights to start next spring...
