A recruitment day is planned at Dublin's Hilton Airport Hotel, with interested candidates asked to drop in their CVs to the hotel on Monday, January 11.

Applicants that meet the airline’s criteria will be invited back for an assessment the following day, January 12, the airline says.

"Imagine visiting Sydney’s Opera House at the start of the week, dining on the Champs-Elysees in Paris later in the week and then browsing the many stores on New York’s Fifth Avenue the following week," it gushes.

As well as cabin crew, the award-winning carrier is seeking applications for the positions of in-flight chefs and food & beverage managers.

The Dublin date is the first of six global recruitment days planned by Etihad, which employs some 200 Irish staff at Dublin Airport, its Dublin line maintenance operation, and across its global network.

"Ireland has been chosen to host the first day of our new global recruitment drive due to its excellent workforce, which is renowned for its advanced aviation skills and experience," said Linda Celestino, VP of Guest Services for the airline.

"We are on the lookout for talented individuals with a passion for hospitality and those who share our commitment to excellence in customer experience,” she added.

If you can't make Monday, don't fret.

Candidates that are unable to attend on the day can submit their CV with a covering letter to etihad.com/en-ie/careers/cabin/recruitment.
