It’s been a while since Qantas opened up any kind of recruitment for new cabin crew but the wait is finally over. Expressions of interest have just opened for new flight attendants at its QantasLink subsidiary and eligible candidates can apply online now.
QantasLink operates several small aircraft types to 58 destinations throughout Australia and Papua New Guinea. However, this particular opening is for cabin crew on the Bombardier Dash-8 Turboprop aircraft only. This variant of aircraft seats between 36 to 74 passengers in an all economy configuration.
This isn’t a job opening for the faint hearted or those who like to work in large teams. The Dash-8 aircraft flys to regional destinations throughout Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, Tasmania and South Australia and is crewed by just 1 – 2 crew (dependent on aircraft variant).
If you at least 18 years old and hold permanent residence status for Australia or New Zealand you could be eligible for this role. Other key requirements include:
- Height of between 163 – 183cm
- A valid passport with unrestricted access to all Qantas destinations with at least 12 months validity
- An excellent level of health and fitness
- Current Senior First Aid Certificate with a validity of 12 months at time of application
- Responsible Service of Alcohol ‘Statement of Attainment’
You should also have a good level of experience in delivering customer service with empathy to a multicultural customer base.
Full details can be found on the Qantas Careers website.
