Etihad Airways to Hold Recruitment Drive in Ireland for 100+ Staff

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Friday, 7 October 2011

Etihad Airways is preparing to hold a recruitment drive in Ireland as it looks for at least 100 new Irish employees to support its growth around the world.

Etihad already employs more than 90 Irish staff at the airport, its Dublin line maintenance operation and across its global network, and is now aiming to more than double those numbers.

The recruitment Open Days will be held at the Burlington Hotel on 30 November and 1 December 2011. Etihad is also planning to hold Open Days in Belfast and Cork.

Weve built close relationships with Ireland and with Irish communities around the world since we began our service to Dublin four years ago, said Etihad Chief Executive Officer, James Hogan. We have directly invested more than 16 million into Ireland over that time. That money has gone into our premium lounge and ground operations at Dublin airport, our Dublin Line Maintenance Centre and of course our sponsorship commitment as a supporter of GAA hurling. And our operating costs and Irish aircraft financing deals see tens of millions more every year coming into the Irish economy from Etihad. Next month, we are holding cabin crew recruitment Open Days in Dublin and we are hoping to hire at least 100 employees from this market.

Etihad launched its Dublin to Abu Dhabi flights in 2007. Today it operates 10 flights a week into the UAEs capital city, offering onward connections to another 70 destinations around the world.
