How likely would it be for a new joiner to get BHX as a base ?

I believe 95% of pilots are in their first base preference, and a good proportion of those who aren't are those that have left small, popular bases (EXT/BOH/BRS) for the command upgrade.

Time to command is hard to gauge. The latest upgrades are around 11-12 years in the company, however there was a six year gap in recruitment between 2007-13, so one assumes that time is going to come down significantly very shortly.

Anyone able to give us an idea of a typical 75/6 roster? Any idea of how many pilots they are looking to take on this time around?
Cheers

No idea on numbers, my May 75/76 roster is 7 short haul flights three days standby and a cape verde night stop. So effectively 13 days work, 17 off.

Any idea recall checked on if it's even Stevens recruitment for both 73 or 75 or majority 75? Just trying to gauge chances (if you passed!) that they'd offer 75 or 73. Although sounds like a cracking place to work the scandi thing wouldn't be at all for me so would be a non starter.

Don't know when it closes or anything about numbers either I'm afraid.

Hi guys, I've just been invited for an assessment, any info about the interview process?

Hi Solenoid,


Congratulations, we would like to invite you to attend an assessment day for the position of Thomson Airways Non Type Rated Pilot.

What is an assessment day?

Our assessment days are an opportunity for you to find out even more information about TUI Group and what it’s like to work for Thomson Airways as a Pilot. It also allows us to meet with you to assess if you are the person we are looking for, who can deliver exceptional service and go the extra smile.

The assessment day will consist of 2 stages; in the morning there will be a group activity, case study and a technical test which will last from 08.00 until 13.00. Your scores will be collated from these 3 activities and if you have met the criteria then you will be progressed to the 2nd stage of the day.

The 2nd stage of the day will consist of an individual competency based interview and will take place from 13.30 onwards, interviews are completed individually and so we anticipate all interviews being completed and the day finishing at 17.00.

What do I need to bring to the assessment?

To meet with our requirements we will need you to bring the following original items and photocopies to our assessment day:

• Valid EU or UK Passport & photocopy of the picture page
• Valid licence & photocopy
• Valid medical certificate & photocopy
• Log Book & photocopy of the last 3 pages
• Proof of residency in the UK & photocopy
• Proof of UK NI number & photocopy (if you already have this)
• Wet drill Certificate & photocopy (if relevant)

In addition to the above there is 1 attachment on this email which you will need to print off, complete and bring along with you on the day:

• Reference form

Please note that unfortunately we will be unable to assess you if you fail to bring any of the above documentation with you on the day.

The dress code for the assessment day will be smart office wear. To book into your assessment day, click on the following link where you will be able to choose from the dates available, please note that should you be successful through both stages of the day that the assessment day will last until approximately 17.00, please note all timings are approximate.

If you are unable to attend any of the dates listed please do not choose the option that states 'Sorry I am not available for the proposed dates' but instead please contact us on 0800 169 56 92 (Option 1) to find out what if any further dates we have available.

We're looking forward to meeting you!

Regards,


Thomson Airways Recruitment Team

Don't join TOM if quick time to command is important. 2 years ago time to command was about 15 years. People getting their commands now have been in the company around 10 years. People getting their command in 2 years from now, may well have been in the company significantly less than 10 years. But who knows what is around the corner and these things can change overnight. Join the company you think you might be happy in and get your command when it comes around. Or join FR and a get a command pretty munch immediately.
