Qatar Airways recruits new cabin crew members from Baltic states

Posted 30 January 2013 · Add Comment

Qatar Airways has turned to Baltic Aviation Academy for the recruitment of new cabin crew members from the Baltic States.

The initial assessment, gathering participants from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland, during which 100 finalists will be selected, is to be conducted on February 9-10 2013, in Vilnius, Lithuania. An additional selection for Belarus residents (due to time needed to acquire the visas) will be conducted on the February 24.

One hundred selected candidates will be invited to the second round, conducted by the airline on February 24-25 2013 in Vilnius. The airline will offer three year open-ended contract for the cabin crew positions based in Doha.
 
This is the second campaign of Qatar Airways admission in the Baltic States and Poland, conducted by Baltic Aviation Academy. On October 2012, the aviation personnel training centre scanned more than 500 applicants and led 83 of them to the airlines‘ interview, more than 10 of which were proposed with job opportunities.
 
“We are delighted that an ability to travel and avoid boring nine to five routine attracted a number of qualified candidates to Baltic Aviation Academy‘s organised Qatar Airways cabin crew recruitment days last Autumn. The candidates ranged from young lawyers and nurses to 50-year olds, wishing to pursue their lifetime dreams and become stewards and stewardesses. Due to relatively small aviation markets, there is a small demand for cabin crew positions in the Baltic States. We are glad to have an answer for all those, enquiring us when the upcoming Qatar Airways cabin crew selection will be conducted. Baltic Aviation Academy hopes that during the 5 years term of current agreement there will be even more joint recruitment campaigns in the region," commented Egle Vaitkeviciute, chief executive officer at Baltic Aviation Academy.
 
“The aircraft may place several hundred passengers. One might have problems in getting up early, the other one worries for the upcoming business meeting, the third one maybe has a fear of flight. The work of the cabin crew is not only smiling, pouring coffee, travelling and looking great, but also helping the passengers – from a timely word to save their day to helping in the emergency situations. Positiveness, empathy, communicativeness, quick reaction, intelligence and an ability to quickly learn technical subjects are the additional qualities crucial for a successful team member," said Jurgita Baleviciene, ex-senior cabin attendant and current quality manager and cabin crew training instructor at Baltic Aviation Academy.
 
The survey, conducted by Baltic Aviation Academy in 2011, revealed that the most popular reasons for choosing the cabin crew position were: opportunity of travelling, lack of routine and an ability to interact with interesting personalities, including famous football players or a president. Due to Baltic Aviation Academy‘s calculations, those who stay in a position for a year, usually stay for a longer airline career. Around 70% of the first year-passing cabin crew work in a field more than five years. Seven to 10 years might be the margins when more attention is tend to be paid to family and standard working hours.
