Jet2.com is delighted to announce the opening of an exciting opportunity for Pilot Apprentices to join our Team. Working with and understanding all of our business areas, the Pilot Apprentice programme provides an outstanding opportunity to develop a long term career with an award-winning Leisure Travel Business. You will have an enviable ability to develop relationships across Flight Operations and the business as a whole, whilst developing your skills and experience in aviation.
The Jet2.com Pilot Apprenticeship scheme has continued to grow over several years, providing fantastic career opportunities for Pilots entering the world of commercial aviation. Throughout your time as a Jet2.com Pilot Apprentice you will receive support and assistance through our dedicated Apprentice Mentoring system geared towards preparing and developing your skills in order to take the next steps for your Type Rating and beyond. This is an incredibly exciting time for Jet2.com and Jet2holidays. We have recently opened our 2nd overseas base in Palma Spain and will take final delivery of our 34 brand new B737-800NG aircraft in early 2019 as we gear up for our busiest ever Summer.
The Pilot Apprentice programme will begin at Leeds Bradford International Airport and our Commercial Office in Leeds, where you will undertake a planned schedule geared towards giving you maximum exposure to the full range of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays business areas. This includes (among others) our Contact Centre, Operations, Finance, Human Resources, Jet2holidays and Engineering Teams. You will then support a wide range of Operational Teams, undertaking duties as Cabin Crew, Flight Operations and learning the day to day aspects of one of our Crew Rooms. With regular jump seat opportunities, an in house JOC Course and 11 hours SEP flying, your flying currency will be maintained in preparation for your Type Rating.
On successful completion of the Apprenticeship, Jet2.com will provide you with a fully bonded Type Rating, and you will then enter the world of commercial aviation as a Second Officer.
Successful candidates will already have a UK Issued Frozen ATPL Pilots Licence, Current Class One Medical and a valid UK driving licence. Along with this, you will have completed an APS MCC Course or alternatively an MCC and JOC course and will possess strong ATPL Theory exam results. You will have also maintained your flying ‘currency’ through training and/or regular flying. You will have excellent verbal and written communication skills and experience of office IT systems. In addition, you must be flexible as we may require you to work from any of our 9 UK Bases or 2 overseas bases in Spain.
In return, we offer a competitive salary and benefits package with fantastic opportunities for progression in a growing business.
This is a great opportunity to be part of an exciting forward thinking business. We operate scheduled leisure flights to holiday destinations in the Mediterranean, the Canary Islands and to European Leisure Cities from our 9 UK bases.
