This post provides details on becoming Etihad Cabin Crew.
The Etihad application process is composed of a CV drop and invite only assessments. Etihad post the location, dates and details of their CV drops on their website and social media. If you meet the criteria for the job you can go along to a CV drop – you do not have to be invited. During the CV drop you may be asked to stay for the whole day or return for a full assessment day. Your CV should demonstrate that you meet the criteria that Etihad are looking for and that you are right for the role. Need help tailoring your CV to meet this criteria? Download my Cabin Crew CV template or take a look at my 1:1 Cabin Crew tuition and guidance.
It is also possible to make an online application on their website.
If you are successful at this stage you will be invited to attend an Assessment Day. These assessments are invitation-only and are sent to candidates after they have applied.
The assessment day is designed to assess your suitability for a job as Etihad Cabin Crew. The day will involve a competency interview where you will be asked about your previous experience. You will then have to give a presentation on a given topic and participate in group activities and role play. You may also be asked to complete an English test.
After these have been completed some selected candidates will be invited for a final interview.
Before you start your training to become Etihad Cabin Crew you will be sent a workbook to complete in your own time.
The training lasts 7 weeks and involves safety training, customer service, and first aid. Training can be tough and it involves a number of written and practical assessments. However, if you study for your tests and work hard you’ll be fine.
