Stop Start

Not succinct but very much to the point and wise words for all the 'ranters' out there. Well said!

Sector pay went up 5% this year so you can add that to Dad's figures.

How many already-rated 757 guys do you think that might appeal to?

Also interested to know the 737 CP numbers.

Secondly where are they going to get the skippers from? Apart from Dhl can't think of too many other places?

It MAY appeal to:

Experienced B757/767 Capts & FO's who are flying permanent nights, and possibly based in Central Europe, away from their families.

Experienced B757/767 Capts. who fancy taking any offers of early retirement or redundancy from their current employers whilst not having to do a new type rating.

Experienced B757/767 Capts & FO's who have had enough of the Gulf, Central Asia or China.

Experienced B757/767 FO's who fancy taking a chance for better Command progression than their current employers.

Experienced B757/767 Capts & FO's who fancy taking advantage of the flexible working patterns that Jet2.com offer as they have 'outside' interests & sources of income so they desire a less hectic lifestyle.

And if I can think of anything else, I'll post it.

There aren't many 75 rated people hanging about with nothing to do, its become a bit of a niche rating. Think it will appeal to a fair few DHL people, either those stuck in Leipzig or those stuck in EMA with there only chance of progression to take a Leipzig command.

I know of 757 FO but zero hours on type and won't get touched.

He wasn't pay to fly, he got type rated then the famous AEU went bankrupt.

Plenty of experienced turboprop pilots applying from Flybe, both seats, who will accept a bond and the chance to join a profitable company for a northern base.

Apologies if this has been asked before.

Whilst I realise the job advert states 'permanent' I was under the impression that Jet2's policy in the past was to hire on a 7 month contract initially via agency with a view to perm. Is this correct?

I'm reluctant to apply if this is the case as I'm currently working abroad on the 737 in a secure position and a 'view to perm' is a hell of a leap of faith for me to make in my position in the current worldwide job market.

There are a certain number of people who will have to be taken on to a summer only contract. Others will be taken on 70% for the first year, some perhaps 100%. It's all a bit of a mix really. No telling until they make you an offer.

I think the B757 vacancies are permanent.

You sure about that FW. Last year they were offering 100% only but with 70% available on request.

Not the same same this time round?

I believe that the vast majority of those recruited on 70% "Summer Contracts" have now been offered permanent positions in line with the companies plans for expansion.

Whether that means this year will all be 100% is yet to be seen. Base wise, the rumors are that ALC will be getting another aircraft (or 2) and ACE will also be getting one, so I wouldn't be surprised if the company was keen to offer these as bases (ALC wasn't that popular a base this year).

EMA should be seeing more aircraft next summer, although the internal transfer list is still quite long, with it being the most southern UK base.

I personally know of 5 Captains and 5 First Officers who are on 70%, albeit permanent contracts this summer. They certainly didn't request to be on 70%! I'm lead to believe they will be made up to 100% come the end of the summer or for next year.

When I interviewed for non TR DEC last year it was for full time only but they said you could have a summer contract if you wanted one. All of my intake was full time.

From what I've heard this year it'll be the same i.e. the choice is yours, effectively.
