The first of the recruitment days is being held this morning at The Central Hotel in Dublin.



The others will be held in Galway, Limerick and Cork.



Emirates - the world's sixth largest airline - announced last month that it is to begin a daily service between Dublin and Dubai next January.



The Dubai-based airline already employs 232 Irish people, 139 of whom are cabin crew.

The recruitment drive in Ireland is part of a global strategy, looking to fill 4000 vacancies worldwide.
