Flight attendant jobs guide

Flight attendant jobs guide

Flight attendant jobs are a great combination of high-quality customer service and a working environment that will challenge you every day. If you love to travel the world, as well as show sterling service to others, you’d do well to consider working as a flight attendant.

About

Flight attendant jobs are a great combination of high-quality customer service and a working environment that will challenge you every day. If you love to travel the world, as well as show sterling service to others, you’d do well to consider working as a flight attendant.

Key duties are safety and service. Whilst we’ve pretty much worked out how to safely fly planes from A to B, it’s crucial that passengers are still ready for the worst-case scenario and this is one of your main jobs. Should the very worst happen, you’ll need strength of spirit to make sure everyone is kept as safe as possible. Day-to-day service takes many forms during a flight: from ensuring physical comfort, to bringing food and drink, to minor first aid, to dealing with passenger disputes and problems.

[JBEFORM]

Other important tasks involve pre-flight checks and post-flight records, selling goods from the in-flight catalogue, and collecting boarding passes. Therefore, diligence, care, and attention to detail are tremendously important for the administrative elements and, if you’ve got the gift of the gab, you’ll see your sales commissions go sky-high!

Finally, your customer service must translate into team work too. There will be shifts when you are in your flying metal box for hours at a time with no space for arguments, so you’ve all got to get on and be professional whether you like each other outside of work or not.

Benefits

The most popular thing about flight attendant jobs is the travel. Whilst you mustn’t assume that you’ll see the world with every trip, there will be plenty of opportunities where you’ll spend several days in a country before flying back again.

For those who are great at selling, you’ll love the sales commission on the in-flight tax-free goods. Sell enough and you’ll have plenty of pocket money for the beach cabana bar!

If you enjoy high-pressure work, flight attendant work will appeal to you too. You’ll be expected to live close to the airport and, at times, you’ll be called in on short notice. It’s not great for all of us, but for some of us, it can be really quite enjoyable.

Getting into the industry

To work in flight attendant jobs, there are a few key skills you need and you certainly won’t be able to get a job straight out of senior school. You’ve got to be over 18, and sometimes, over 21.

First, you’ll need several GCSES at grade C, including English and Maths. If you’ve taken any BTECs or NVQs in things like Hospitality, Travel, Leisure and Tourism or Modern Languages, these will definitely help you when you apply. Similarly, previous customer service jobs will make you a more suitable candidate for the work, and speaking another language will be a big bonus.

There are physical restrictions to think about too. A rough height guide (varying from employer to employer) is between 5’2 and 6’2, with your weight proportional to your height. Your hearing, sight and overall health should be good, and you should be able to swim at least 25 metres. Finally, few-to-no tattoos and piercings will be expected.

Career development

Once you’ve gotten your foot in the cabin door, you can work your way up to senior cabin crew staff with the salary to match. For the extra-capable, you may find yourself moving into management or training. Not only that, but this kind of work experience will be very transferable into other jobs so don’t worry about painting yourself into a corner!
