Closing date: 26th August 2012
This is a fantastic opportunity for Korean language speakers to join our mixed fleet where you have the chance to excel and be recognised for your individual contribution as cabin crew. If you aspire to be the very best, you are customer focused and work well as part of a team, then this could be the opportunity you’ve been looking for.
You’ll build on your previous customer service experience and be encouraged to accept responsibility for the delivery of excellent customer service on-board delivered in both English and Korean. You’ll have the opportunity to develop new skills, take control of your career path and be recognised and rewarded for the outstanding performance you demonstrate.
As a Korean language speaker, the majority of your flying will be to the mixed fleet destination of Seoul in South Korea where you will have stays of up to 3 nights. There will also be opportunities to fly to other destinations on the mixed fleet network.
This unique opportunity will provide you with the chance to immerse yourself in Korean culture, enhancing the outstanding customer service on board for our Korean customers. Another benefit will be the opportunity to regularly travel to Korea. For some of you, this would provide a chance to further improve your knowledge of the Korean language in its natural environment. For others it would provide a chance to reconnect regularly with friends or family in Korea.
