easyJet – Why Work For Us?

When it comes to innovation and achievement there are few organisations with a better track record. Join us and you’ll be able to play a big part in the success of our highly successful, fast-paced business that opens up Europe so people can exercise their get-up-and-go.

With over 250 aircraft flying over 700 routes to more than 30 countries, we’re the UK’s largest airline, the fourth largest in Europe and the tenth largest in the world. Flying over 70 million passengers a year, we employ over 9,000 people including around 2,500 pilots and almost 6,000 cabin crew. It’s big-scale stuff and we’re still growing.

But for us, it’s about so much more than the numbers. In fact, if there’s one thing that sets us apart, it’s our people. Every one of them. Our pilots and cabin crew. Our engineers and central support teams. They’re the ones who make us the huge success story we are today. Which is why we offer so much in return, from training and development to rewards and recognition.

Life at easyJet

If you love a challenge, are passionate about what you do and always go above and beyond to exceed expectations – you’ll fit right in here.

We live to deliver the best possible customer experience and never deviate from our mission to be the leading short-haul airline in Europe – no matter what challenges come our way. We grow, because of our passion, commitment, belief and love of what we do. And we succeed, because we’ve the best people working for us. It’s what we call ‘generation easyJet’.

This is just a little taster of what it means to be part of easyJet. Join us and experience it for yourself – there really is no career like it.

Our orange spirit - This is how we define ourselves. The things we live and breathe every day:

  • Never compromising on safety
  • Cutting out the things that don’t matter to keep us lean and make it easy
  • Working together as one team to always find a way
  • Standing by our word and doing what we say
  • Having a passion for our customers, our people and the way we do
  • Finding new ways to make travel easy and affordable

easyJet comes with a strong and distinct culture. One that we’re really proud of. We set out to do it our way, to be individual and unique rather than copy others. And we hope it shows.

It all starts with a very flat hierarchy, which eliminates unnecessary layers of management – and gives us a human touch you can feel right across the organisation, encouraging a ‘one team’ approach to delivery whether on board an aircraft or in an office.

In fact, we have no offices. Our working spaces are open plan, encouraging an open culture, allowing us all to work together, and enabling us to share our experiences and support each other – with a little bit of fun and enjoyment added in. Of course we have to work hard, but this is one of the most exciting, progressive and enjoyable environments you could wish to do it in.

That’s why we’ll give you all the training, tools and opportunities you need to go as far as you want to go in your career with us.

Our approach to learning and development follows what we call a 70:20:10 philosophy – 70% of learning takes place on the job, 20% informally through coaching and mentoring, and 10% through formal learning like face-to-face programmes.

Whether you’re a junior looking for your next step up or an aspiring manager who’s hungry to go all the way to the top – with so much support on offer, there really is no limit to how far you can go.

As part of our Cabin Crew, you’ll never be short of new experiences. The possibilities are endless. We fly 870 routes across Europe – and our Cabin Crew are the people that create amazing experiences on every one.

Join us and you’ll work with some great people in a fun environment and receive world-class training for free. You’ll enjoy real variety too, as no two days are ever the same with different crews, new passengers or fresh destinations to look forward to. As you’d expect, there will be the occasional night stop. But most of the time we’ll get you home every night.
There will also be lots of scope to grow and develop if you’ve the drive and determination to make it happen. Career ambitions are more than welcome here – and we’ll support and encourage you every step of the way.

So, there’s variety to keep you interested. An amazing team to keep you motivated. And, with some of the best training in the industry, the opportunity to move forward pretty quickly if you want to. We’ve seen plenty of Cabin Crew members follow a path into management after just a year. And you could be the next.

At easyJet, we’re all about opening up Europe to a whole generation of travellers. Because of our extensive network, simplicity and low prices, the possibilities to get-up-and-go and experience Europe are endless.

Join our fantastic team of Captains, Co-Pilots and Trainers and you’ll take on a key leadership role and set the highest standards of professionalism in everything you do.

As a pilot with easyJet you’ll be working with a great team and will have excellent development opportunities, a variety of European bases and a safe, modern A320 fleet all at your fingertips. We enjoy bringing the latest technologies to the flight deck and we’re always open to new suggestions. Highly skilled and passionate about flying, you’ll love the fact that on average our Airbus aircraft are only six years old. And even more new aircraft will be landing shortly.  

Thanks to the huge diversity of routes we fly from our various bases across Europe, you’ll also experience some of the more challenging airport destinations. And as we’re short haul, there’s lots of variety, quick turnarounds, short flights and multiple take-offs and landings in a single day but returning you home to friends and family. You’ll enjoy world-class training and being part of our supportive learning environment. Your route to command will also be faster here than at most other airlines with clear trigger points and criteria based on performance, as well as hours flown – excellent news for ambitious pilots looking to go further, faster.  

Our Pilots are dedicated, enthusiastic and highly talented. And we’re extremely proud of them. So, if you share our energy, integrity and passion for flying, take your career places and play a lead role as part of our professional and successful flight operations team.

Operations. Finance. Engineering. HR. You name it. Our central teams are the pumping heart of easyJet. They’re the ones who keep our operations efficient, our planes in the sky, and our airline smoothly running as one of the biggest in Europe. 

We’re a hard-working, fun-loving bunch of people who enjoy autonomy, taking ownership and high levels of responsibility. But rather than taking our word for it, we decided to ask our own people what they think about life at easyJet. 

They talked of the rapid progress you can make here. The support our Finance people get as they go through their accountancy qualifications – likewise in Engineering. Or any other area for that matter. It doesn’t matter which of our central teams you join, you’ll have plenty of opportunities to move about and try out something new. 

The trick is to always be open to new ideas. If there’s a smarter way of doing something, we say it. If it’s a good idea, we do it. And when it works, we celebrate it. And then do it all over again. 

They talked of the pride everyone has in their work – and the passion that comes with being part of such a multi-talented team. 

But, like anywhere, the easyJet way of life isn’t for everyone. 

It’s challenging. It’s pacey. And it takes a lot of resilience to work here. It’s a mindset. An attitude. What we call an Orange Spirit.

If you’re a real people person who loves resolving issues through pragmatism and common sense, join us. You’ll enjoy plenty of scope for career development as you drive change, improve efficiencies and make a real impact from day one.

    I have been working at easyJet part-time


    After being a Cabin Manager and working as an assessor for new crew for many years I had 2 children and I couldn't continue in the role but have now adapted to a new part time role. The opportunities available to you once here are endless. I didn't want to leave the company as the passion I still have and the working relationships formed here are irreplaceable.


    There are always hard times within a company and easyJet definitely have them. Its a demanding high paced place to work but worth it.

    Cabin Crew (Full Time) Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Luton, South West England, England
    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview


    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at easyJet (Luton, South West England, England) in February 2017.


    I applied online and was invited to an assesment day at The Easy Jet Academy in Luton.

    The AD started at 8.30am, there was around 30 people on the day. First they check your documents and measure your height, then a presentation about the company and you can ask questions.

    We then did 3 different group activities which involved problem solving and a mini presentation, an assessor is sat with your group the whole time. It was really fun and very relaxed!

    After lunch we were then split into groups and one group was successful and the others went home. We had another presentation about Easy Jet where they talked about salary/rosters etc and you can ask questions. Then we were given an interview time and waited around for an interview.

    It was a very organised day unlike some other airline AD's. A few days later I got an email and was successful!
