A major recruitment campaign is underway for Ryanair, which is seeking to fill hundreds of cabin crew positions in Ireland.

Dalmac, the airline's official training and recruitment partner, is holding recruitment days in Belfast on March 8 and Dublin on March 11.

Successful candidates will have the opportunity to work in various airports across Europe including Ireland, Ryanair said.

The airline is growing at a fast pace, now carrying over 106 million passengers a year with a further 350 Boeing 737s on order.

No previous cabin crew experience is required of applicants, but they must be over 18, between 5'2 and 6'2 in height, "and it helps if you are hard-working, flexible, outgoing and have a lively personality," according to Dalmac.

Successful applicants undertake a six-week training course, which they must pay for themselves - though no fees are payable by those who fail or drop out.

Ryanair is hiring - and there are new uniforms too

"You can typically expect to earn approximately €1,000-€1,400 per month after tax in your first year depending on base location," Ryanair says.

Dalmac had a "fantastic response" to its recruitment campaigns for the airline in 2015, its Head of Recruitment, Niall Gleeson, said.

"We are now returning to fill hundreds of positions; this is a fantastic opportunity to join a growing industry.”

Potential candidates should register their interest on Dalmac's website ( or contact 01 843-7781 ahead of the recruitment days.
