whats mental is that people are applying for it. If no one applied then theyd pay for the rating. Its a market economy

EasyJet is not a good financial prospect for experienced FOs coming from the outside. The pay is atrocious and to think you'll likely have a loan to manage as well.

As others have said, pretty simple solution to paying for a type rating. Dont.

I haven't logged my hours in that way, do they need climb and cruise hours as well or just descent?

Descent hours requirement is not as bad as requirement to have cross-country hours and you are at a company flying domestically only :/

On the topic: like others said if they wouldn't received applications for this BS they wouldn't do it

Interesting that they will sponsor the type rating for UK based people, is there a shortage of qualified FOs in the UK market at the moment?

I think Jet2 are taking quite a few from EasyJet at the moment.

probably a shortage of U.K. licence plus right to live & work in the U.K. Pilots, coupled to BA, Virgin and Jet2 (Airbus) hoovering up qualified FOs.

There is currently a tightening in the supply of UK CAA licence holders with CS25 time and the right to live and work in the UK; BA, BAEF, BACF, VS, EZY, RYR, DHL, WAUK, TUI, Jet2, Wizz UK, Eastern, Logan, Titan and other regional and executive carriers have all been recruiting and the market is a fairly buoyant place- for now. As ever it is cyclical and what everyone is doing is finding a seat to be sat on when the music stops playing again.

Flights are being cancelled daily due to lack of FO's in EZJ. They have cocked up the numbers yet again and over estimated the ease with which French cadet meat can be herded onto the line.

If they didn't have nonsense filled assessment days run by "talent managers", and didnt run discriminative anti male type rating schemes all those years, then they may not be in their current predicament

I can confirm the Amy Johnson course is open to both males and females. I have flown with a male first officer who joined easyjet via it.

And take a look at the cadet graduation pictures - how do they compare to the percentage of applicants who are "pale males"?!

I withdrew from joining a DEC course some years ago, partly because I encountered a sort of passive aggressive arrogance when I had to deal with HR (and strange how quiet they are on their gender balance in other departments)! ... and partly because I couldn't stomach forking out for a very expensive type rating (out of my net pay, what's more). And the leadership did not impress me - Dame Sharon White of John Lewis reminds me of Dame Carolyn.

Jones, yes that is now correct, but for a long time, it was barred to male applicants.

About 4 years ago at a UK easyJet recruitment day; I was type rated, with about 14 years and 8,000 hours on Airbus A320/321/330, and current on the '330 at the time. I was only offered a Milan base, and they said I would have to give easyJet 8,000 out of my pay for my A320/321 revalidation..........

.........No thanks !!

Was "he" a male when "he" applied?
