Emirates are coming to Galway and Limerick this month to recruit new cabin crew members

Looking for a career change?

Emirates have announced that they are heading to Dublin later this month to recruit new cabin crew members.


The Dubai-based airline is holding a Cabin Crew recruitment Open Day in Galway at 8am sharp on Wednesday, February 20 at the Clybaun Hotel, Clybaun Road, Knocknacarra in Co Galway.

The second Open Day will take place in Limerick at 8am on Friday, February 22 at the Absolute Hotel, Sir Harry’s Mall.


The airline is looking for both women and men to fill the new positions, which have been created due to the continued growth of the airline, the recent addition of new routes on the Emirates network as well as additional aircraft.   


Members of Emirates' cabin crew are offered an entire employment package, which includes things like a tax-free income, free shared accommodation while in Dubai, as well as free transport to-and-from work - among many other things.

To make things even better, there's some concessional travel benefits for cabin crew members - as well as their family and friends.

Any applications need to drop in to the Open Day with an up-to-date CV in English, as well as a recent photograph.

Anyone thinking of applying needs to be at least 21 years old at the time of joining, and have an arm reach of 212cm when standing on their tiptoes.


A full list of requirements for the selection process, as well as the cabin crew starting salary and benefits, can be found here.

Although not mandatory, candidates are encouraged to complete an online application on the Emirates Group careers website prior to attending the Open Day. 

Enda Corneille, Country Manager for Emirates in Ireland said:

“Emirates has a strong interest in growing the number of cabin crew from Ireland in the company and we have seen a fantastic response from previous recruitment drives.

Our cabin crew are open-minded, helpful, friendly and service-oriented and that’s what we need from candidates in order to deliver Emirates’ award-winning onboard experience to customers. I encourage anyone based in the West or South of Ireland who is looking for a rewarding and progressive career to make the most of this opportunity.

"Applicants just need to drop in to the Open Day with an up-to-date CV in English and a recent photograph. 

“Candidates will need to come prepared to spend the full day at the venue if required. Shortlisted candidates will be informed of timings for further assessments and interviews. 

“It is an exciting time for us as Emirates continues to grow and interested applicants who attend will get to meet some of our cabin crew recruitment team who will be happy to answer any questions about the role and life in Dubai.”
