This post provides details on becoming Ryan Air Cabin Crew.

Becoming Ryanair Cabin Crew

Application process

Ryanair post their job openings on their careers website. This lists the vacancies and the day and place that they are holding recruitment days. You can then apply for the recruitment day on this website.

The application form asks for your personal details, a photo, a CV and there’s also a section with questions asking whether you meet the needed criteria. For example, whether you are between 5”2 and 6”2 in height.

If this application is successful you’ll be invited to attend their recruitment day via email. This day will involve a number of steps where you’ll be assessed to see if you have what it takes to become Ryanair Cabin Crew. When you arrive you will need to go through registration. You will then be asked to answer an English grammar test and an essay style assignment.

After this, if you’re successful you’ll be asked to attend an interview for later that day and to attend a presentation on the company and Cabin Crew role. The interview will be 10-15 minutes long and involve a number of questions designed to further assess your suitability for the job.       

If you need help tailoring your resume to the needs of the airline, I have a Cabin Crew CV Template and a 1:1 Cabin Crew tuition and guidance to help you out. 


Ryanair provide you with a 6 week, free training course. You will also receive allowance pay during this training period. The training will cover everything you need to know before you start – from customer service to dealing with emergency situations.

During the training period you will also be required to complete and pass a number of written and practical exams and assessments.

If you’re worried about training or want more information, I have Cabin Crew training covered in my Becoming Cabin Crew e-book!

Working life

You tend to work a 5 on 3 off roster – so you fly for 5 days and then have 3 days off. During flights you will be working within a 4 person team and travel to one of the over 200 destinations that Ryanair fly to.


When you start you will receive a £700 new joiners allowance, and after this, you will receive a competitive basic salary.  


Ryanair do not provide accommodation for you, so you will be expected to provide your own – this includes the training period.
