Emirates Airline is to hold an open day in Sheffield as part of a drive to recruit 3,800 cabin crew this year.

The company is seeking ‘open-minded, helpful, friendly and service-oriented people’ who will have to relocate to Dubai where they will receive a tax-free salary.

The airline already employs 16,000 flight attendants from more than 120 countries, speaking 50 languages, and a total of 60,000 employees.

At the open day, men and women will be able to speak to the Emirates recruitment team and gain an insight into the company and working on-board.

The airline operates 112 non-stop flights a week from the UK to Dubai – five services a day from Heathrow, three daily from London Gatwick and Manchester, two per day from Birmingham and Glasgow and a daily service from Newcastle.

A spokeswoman said: “Dubai is a thriving metropolis with an exceptional lifestyle and a vast range of leisure and cultural attractions, in addition to the sunny weather all year long.”

The company serves 134 cities worldwide with a fleet of 203 aircraft. It also has 190 planes on order, worth more than $71bn, including 55 Airbus A380s.

In Dubai, passengers can connect to flights to Emirates’ global network which spans over 134 destinations across six continents in 76 countries.

Applicants have to be at least 21 at the time of possible recruitment and are requested to bring an up-to-date curriculum vitae in English, and a photograph.

The open day is this Sunday, September 22, at the Mercure Sheffield St Paul’s Hotel. Register in advance at
