Hi everyone,
I received a phone call that I've been through the selection process successfully, do you guys know how long do they take to send a contract and give you a start date, I'm a 737 rated FO.

Thank You

Thanks. My circumstances mean that I might miss the boat for S24 but Iím guessing the requirement will continue into S25 and beyond.

Congrats!

depends on OCC availability, your notice period and choice of base. Think training is just ongoing, so shouldn’t be an issue. Everyone heard back within 3-4 days of the success at assessment phone call. 75% got first choice base. Contracts issued within 24 hours of offer. I wouldn’t worry if you don’t get exactly the same time scale, as they’re very busy, but it seems to be a reasonably quick turnaround in general.

New postings for ongoing TR FO recruitment for B737 and A321 have gone live.

Base Availability

Hi all, I am wanting to join Jet 2 as a NTR candidate (Attempting to anyways). I am wanting either MAN or LBA base. Wondering if anyone can give me an insight into the availability of these bases and how likely it is to get them?

Cheers

Base availability is seat-dependent, I know earlier this year MAN was not available directly as an OCC captain, but the transfer list is relatively short and with Liverpool opening in May, a base transfer will be likely by then. As for LBA, it was an option for both FOs/Captains joining the company in June/July/August/September.

If both airports are equidistant to you, I would recommend LBA. MAN is a ballache to get from the parking to the crew room for all airlines based there and you have to factor in a good 30 minutes from the car park to the crew room. Whereas LBA parking is right in front of security. The flipside is that LBA is a more challenging airport and you'll probably be diverting to MAN whenever the weather is particularly horrendous.

Ah thats great thanks for your help (I am a FO). I am only 10mins from LBA and 50mins from Man, so hopefully LBA is available for me

Anyone know how long the base transfers are? Specifically Birmingham to Stansted. Understand it all depends on where the aircraft are being deployed but would appreciate if anyone knows base transfer times for the Airbus.

There aren’t any Airbus based at STN so your question cannot be answered.

As above, no Airbus at STN aside from the Titan/Hi-Fly seasonal leases. There are noises that STN is due to receive the Airbuses after MAN & BHX but rumours at J2 are often false prophecies!

The positive news is that STN & BRS seem to be the most undercrewed bases in the network and so there is always availability in both seats. STN especially due to the growth over the last few years and number of airframes.

I have a friend in the RHS, still waiting for his base transfer to BRS

Confusing situation for me as an A321 type rated Captain who first applied a year ago...

Email received late August:

Good Morning,

Thank you for applying for the role of A321 Type Rated Captain at Jet2.com.

We have now completed our recruitment for 2023 and we would like to take the opportunity to thank you for your interest in Jet2.com and Jet2holidays and invite you to await further vacancies on our careers website at www.jet2careers.com. You can add ‘job alerts’ to your candidate profile so you will receive e-mail notifications as soon as suitable positions are advertised.

If you are interested in finding out more about working for Jet2.com and Jet2holidays, please visit www.jet2careers.com/videos to get more of an insight.

We wish you every success in the future.

Kind Regards,

The Jet2.com and Jet2holidays Recruitment Team
But then a month later, fresh A321 vacancies listed. If I try to apply again using the same profile, I can't because the application for the same position is still showing pending. Seems to be the only way out is to use another profile. Any ideas?

Thanks

Both myself and a former work colleague received the same email. Both of us had applied for Airbus DEC.

Thanks. Are your previous applications showing 'Pending' within the job portal?

Interviewed or just Ďappliedí? If you interviewed you obviously didnít make the cut this time but are invited to reapply after the nominal 12 month period. Work on any areas that were mentioned in feedback.

If you applied but didnít make the interviews in time for this round of recruitment, then I would apply again but definitely mention that you have an application still pending. What you donít want is to look like youíre trying to Ďfoolí the system somehow as a back door way in.

Good Luck, itís worth knowing as much as you can about the differences between the Jet2 ethos and the low-cost model, and why it is that way.

In my case I applied but didn't get any further than Jet2 acknowledging my application. I'm 56 and haven't flow commercially since easyJet closed my base in 2020, so to be honest I'm not really expecting to get any further.

I would try Lauda. Soon to be needing captains. But if you haven't flown in over 36 months? You are going to find it difficult anywhere to be honest
Lauda won't be the best option after today's news

Any reason why you didnt take the offer of BRS or LGW that you would've been offered? Or were you BER
