Fancy working a route network that ranges from Sydney to New York, Paris to Dublin, and Seoul to South Africa? With a tax-free salary to boot?

Abu Dhabi-based Etihad is seeking applicants for cabin crew, food and beverage managers and in-flight chefs at Dublin's Morrison Hotel on June 13.

Interested candidates are invited to drop their CVs to the hotel, situated on Lower Ormond Quay, next Monday between 8am and 6pm. Applicants that meet the airline’s criteria will be invited back for assessment on Tuesday, June 14.

Etihad currently employs over 200 Irish staff, and is seeking “talented individuals with the right passion and flair for hospitality” to join its expanding network.
