Emirates Group, comprising Emirates airline and
dnata, has said it plans to hire over 11,000 new staff in the
coming year across its business, in line with its projected growth
across six continents.
This would increase its staff size by 6% by
March 2016. Approximately half of the new recruits will comprise
Dubai-based cabin crew for Emirates airline.
As the airline gears
up to receive over 20 new aircraft this year, it is also actively
recruiting talent in areas such as Flight Operations, Engineering,
Airport Services and Corporate functions.
dnata, which today provides aviation and travel
services in 90 cities across 38 countries, is also seeking talent
for its growing business, particularly airport operations,
Engineering and commercial business development.
“Both Emirates and dnata are exciting and
industry-leading companies. Skilled candidates know they can look
forward to a truly international and multi-cultural working
environment, as well as good career prospects with a stable and
growing company. Our brand, our financial success and stability,
and our growth, makes Emirates Group an attractive employer in the
global arena for the best talent, and that’s why each month we
receive thousands of applications from candidates across the world
looking to join our dynamic team,” said Abdulaziz Al Ali,
Executive Vice President Human Resources, Emirates Airline and
Group. “Right now we have over 75,000 employees in
Dubai and around the world. More than 12,000 of our employees have
been with the group for over 10 years, and almost 3,000 have
worked with us for over 20 years. More than anything, these facts
illustrate the type of employer we are and the opportunities that
we can offer.”
In 2014, Emirates received nearly 483,944 online
applications for over 2,000 jobs, from over 227 countries. It also
receives an average of 1,500 career-related enquiries each month
on its social media channels.
