Recruitment Process
last update
Three stages: Stage 1: online maths, verbal reasoning and personality tests emailed to you to be completed at home in your own time prior to the interview day (they will include the tests in your invite to interview email) Stage 2: Assesment day (in Bradford). They will start off with a presentation on the company and the various positions they have available ( 70%/100% and temporary contracts). Following this you will complete a group exercise followed by an interview usually with two pilots. The interviewers can be of any rank from FO up to Chief Pilot. Generally a relaxed chat with the standard interview questions. You should expect to hear the outcome immediately and if you’re successful you will be invited to the training centre for a sim session on the same day. Stage 3: Simulator. Due to capacity at the training centre most assessments are taking place on the 757 at present. You will be with two training captains, one operating the sim and one as your PM. All they are looking for is a good level of competency and the ability to improve. If you make a mistake or have a bad start don't worry, they will give you the opportunity to fix it and show what you have to offer. 5/Mar/18
