No idea if it means anything but I just noticed they are no longer advertising for non rated Captains. Still advertising for rated…

There is a glut of type rated Captains and FOs available which vastly reduces the training burden on the airline. All about supply and demand.

Fuelled by a desire to get their name in the headlines perhaps as the first major airline to advertise direct entry hiring since the pandemic? .. it certainly got everyone talking about them!

I personally know someone, NTR FO who applied less than 3 months ago and started their course last week. The harsh fact is the pilots that were initially required have been recruited. As I stated in a previous post they wanted Instructors for A320 in LHS and FO’s. However recruitment is now all year around so I would encourage people who want to join Jet2 to apply. The process should now be looked at as a getting on there books, hold pool or whatever you want to call,it. It doesn’t necessarily mean recruitment for this winter. They have to keep it flexible due to the ever changing economic situation and aircraft purchases etc.

Seems to have been more of a who you know rather than what you know recruitment process? At least it's the only job application I've seen asking you who you knew within the company!

I didn’t know anyone and eventually got an invitation to an assessment about 2 weeks ago as a rated 737 FO …however, Jet2 took so long to get back to me that in the meantime, I’d managed to apply, undergo assessment for and be offered a position with two other airlines, so I withdrew my application.

I had multiple references from Jet 2 pilots, applied on the first day, have previous experience on 737 & 757 (but both TR expired), 14k total hrs 7k PIC on 777 and haven't heard a peep.

To be honest, I was very surprised they even opened up to NTR DEC.
With the current economic outlook, I wouldn't be surprised if the recruitment has or will be revised down.

Jet2 have always recruited type and none type rated. They like a mix of experience both civvy and military. The current course is made up of guys from RAF, AAC, Turbo prop, 777/787 etc. recruitment is only going one way and that’s up, given the aircraft orders.

only when they need them. This will be the slowest if it happens at all due to the internal promotion ethos.

Does anyone know, if having been successful through the entire process and being informed as such - this will lead to being offered a position at Jet2, or this success merely adds you to a holding pool with no date of employment offer forthcoming? I'm hearing the holding pool option is now most likely?.

You certainly can’t put a time length on it. Many people pass the process but score less than others and aren’t called. It’s a harsh but true fact. I know several people that passed and never joined. If you do above average in the assessments and you are the right seat, base, aircraft, person you may be called.

So in short everyone who gets through joins the pile, hold pool or whatever you want to call it up to the day they get a call

Thanks mesh - so it does seem that perhaps its just a hold pool and a wait in some form, is what I get from your reply?
