Singapore Airlines resumes cabin crew recruitment after two-year hiring freeze
Applicants will first go through an online interview, followed by final interviews in February and March. Those successful will attend a four-month training programme before finally commencing duties.
After a two-year hiring freeze, Singapore Airlines is finally resuming its cabin crew recruitment to make up for the decline in manpower in the past few years.
“Most of our pilots and cabin crew have returned to active duty with SIA,” an SIA spokesperson told CNA, explaining that the airline has been increasing its capacity “in a calibrated manner” as countries are opening up and the demand for travel is increasing again.
Candidates have to be at least 18 years of age, and have a minimum qualification of five GCE ‘O’ Level credits including English, or Higher Nitec and above. Female candidates must be at least 1.58m tall, and males at least 1.65m.
They must also be service-oriented and have a pleasant personality, as well as be fluent in English.
During the application process, applicants are required to list all the languages they are proficient in, as well as answer if they are confident in swimming in a life jacket.
Selected applicants will then receive a link to complete a video interview online. Those shortlisted will be invited to attend the final interviews held in February and March.
Upon completion of the interviews, successful candidates will undergo a four-month training programme, which will cover topics such as safety equipment procedures and first aid. Flying duties will only commence after the candidates have completed their training.
Those interested can apply through SIA’s website. Former SIA cabin crew members are also eligible to apply.
