Etihad Airways, the national airline of the United Arab Emirates, has launched a major recruitment drive in Australia as it seeks talented hospitality professionals to join its airline cabin crew.
Australian nationals, interested in joining the airline’s award-winning team of cabin crew, food and beverage managers, and qualified in-flight chefs, should apply online at careers.etihadairways.com, ahead of the scheduled recruitment days, an airline statement said.
The recruitment days will take place in Sydney on February 10 and Melbourne on February 12.
