Seems like EZY reopen recruitment for low timers this time

interesting that they seem happy to fully fund cadet type ratings, but not experienced DEC! 🤔🤬

They want 10k “contribution” plus a bond most likely, so not properly fully funded.

Interesting that the job posting is under the Amy Johnson Iniative but there is no mention of it being open exclusively to women...

CAE recently re-opened easyJet recruitment to their cadets but were still asking for the cadets to self-fund the type rating.

Internal communication. The 10k part, the bond part is my guess.

Got an email from CAE asking if I’d be interested in DEC positions with their client Easyjet. I replied including my details and received the following....Sorry but they only accept application form pilots operating as commercial passenger Captains so we can’t proceed. Sorry for the inconvenience.
Regards.
In other words experienced cargo pilots need not apply, never realised an ATPL for cargo aeroplanes differed from passenger????

Hello.

I am considering applying for Easy Swiss as a FO NTR. I was wondering if you have to fund the rating yourself?? If so, it is then a no-go for me.
Second question: if you are based in basel or geneva, how does youe roster look like? Random pattern or fixed pattern?

What are the chances of BRS base as DEC? Very senior base? Will it take years to get there or could you get lucky?

If you join EZY UK with 2,501+ factored hours, do you still need to do 2 years with the company as an FO before being eligible for SFO status?

Cheers

I would guess at slim to anorexic! Recent recruitment for LGW, LTN, Berlin and Portuguese bases. I imagine LHS places at BRS and most regional U.K. bases are like gold dust. In those bases, SFO’s are probably reluctant to go for upgrade due to being sent away to LGW and waiting ages to get back, hence the need for DEC.

It seems DEC has almost stopped except for rated folks for Berlin bases. Even Portugal is not featured on the careers website as far as I can see, or are they using external agencies now?

No, you will start as SFO straight away.

Seems Portugal is gone which is no big loss(for me). Was hoping that Berlin NTR would open but nothing yet(rumour says they are lacking DEC's there as not enough AB skippers are applying).

Seems Italian bases are full(always skipper) as well which would be interesting because of the italian CLA... Well, we will see. And how much RYR is increasing their "package" to keep up with pilot demand. Not sure if EZY is really the right "horse" to put your bet on after that not really clever move of leaving the EU(even they have the swiss and new austrian AOC)....

Before talking about bases I would be more worried about passing the assessment.
Only a very small % of DEC applicants are getting the offer, since most of the positions are filled with internal upgrades.

Once you go for the interview it does not matter what you applied for, you will be asked 3 bases of preference, even out of the application base.

Any recent DEC at LGW

How is life at easy? Much chance of part time? How many hours per year full time? Are you sent to fly from another base for your x5 day block often? Can you ever get any leave in the summer? Are the rosters stable or does the content of the block of work change much after publication?
