Flying high: Emirates seeks to fill 4,000 jobs in global search
MIDDLE East airline Emirates is holding four recruitment days in Ireland over the next 10 days, in order to fill cabin crew jobs across the globe.
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.
"We are looking to recruit 4,000 cabin crew and our policy has always been to recruit staff from countries where there is a strong hospitality tradition," said Laurie Berryman, the airline's vice president for Britain and Ireland.
