Cebu Pacific Careers: Hiring 300 flight attendants, job vacancies

Cebu Pacific (CEB) is hiring 300 flight attendants to augment the airline’s workforce in time for the arrival of four brand-new Airbus A320 aircraft. This aircraft delivery is scheduled from October 2010 until January 2011.

The Cebu Pacific team has scheduled a recruitment campaign in Cebu (September 16 at the Cebu Midtown Hotel) and initial screening in Manila (September 20 and 27 at the Cebu Pacific Training and Development Center, Domestic Airport Road, and October 6 at the Crowne Plaza Galleria Manila).

“We are scheduled to add more flights to Kota Kinabalu, Taipei, Kuala Lumpur, Jakarta and Seoul in time with our Airbus A320 aircraft deliveries, and we need more cabin crew to handle our additional capacity,” said Cebu Pacific VP for Marketing and Distribution Candice Iyog.

“This continuous hiring of cabin crew from all over the Philippines also contributes to nation-building by providing job opportunities. In the past, we have hired flight attendants from our recruitment campaigns in Davao, Cebu, Iloilo and Bacolod, among the many other destinations we fly to,” she added.

Qualifications for being a Cebu Pacific flight attendant include a dynamic personality that embodies CEB’s culture of fun, at least 5’3” in height for females and at least 5’7” in height for males, weight that is proportional to height, clear complexion, good eyesight, and good set of teeth.

The applicants must also be college level, proficient in Filipino and English, and are willing to be assigned outside Metro Manila. They are advised to bring along their updated resumé and recent 2×2 photo. Screening is on first-come first-serve basis.

Iyog added, “We have already successfully trained 120 flight attendants this year, and our 70th batch will soon graduate by the end of September. After rigorous training on safety and service, and competency checks, Batch 70 with 19 females and 9 males will be welcomed into the Cebu Pacific family.”

“We encourage young graduates to apply so that they can experience being part of a young, fun, and service-oriented firm committed to providing high-quality service across Asia,” she said.

Cebu Pacific currently has a fleet of 10 A319, 11 A320 jets and eight turbo-prop ATR 72 aircraft. It expects to take delivery of a total of 24 brand-new Airbus A320 until 2014. For more information, visit the website at www.cebupacificair.com.
