Assessment Centres

Our assessment centres are held at one of our bases across the network by invitation only. We invite up to 40 people and all assessment activities are held on the same day. We anticipate the day to last up to 8 hours in duration.

If you see your chosen base advertised on the current cabin crew vacancy page then it is likely that we will be running an assessment centre near you in the near future so for the opportunity to be invited you need to apply as soon as possible.

Presentation

You will receive informative presentations throughout the day; we will also give you the opportunity to ask any questions directly to the recruitment team and the easyJet cabin crew. We will be looking for you to get involved and show your enthusiasm.

Group exercise

During the day you will be asked to participate in a number of group exercises. These are fun, yet informative exercises and this is our opportunity to see your behaviour in a group scenario.

Personal interview

If you have performed well throughout the assessment centre you will be invited to a personal interview. Now it's our opportunity to learn more about you. During the interview we will be looking for skills relevant to the role of cabin crew and you are required to provide specific and detailed examples from your work history, which demonstrate the required competencies which are explained on your assessment day. Please see our interview tips below on how to create the best possible impression.

Interview Tips

Interview tips and techniques
This is ultimately the point that decides whether you get the job, so it's vital that an interview goes your way. Like most things in life, a lot of interview tips and techniques are common sense. Provided you keep your wits about you, come across as informative and personable and give a full account of who you are and what you can achieve - there is nothing to be nervous about.

Preparation
Finding out as much as you can about easyJet is vital. This website will tell you a lot, but there is plenty more out there - do your homework, key areas we advise you look into are:

  • What we do - our business and history
  • Our locations
  • Current initiatives and future plans
  • Key people in our organisation

Key things to remember

  • Though we have a relaxed dress code - to create the right impression it's a good idea to turn up smart-casual
     
  • Ensure you know your own achievements and aspirations, as most interviewers will ask you about these throughout your meeting
     
  • Be on-time. Nothing is worse than turning up late - or too early. Plan to be there ten minutes before you're due
     
  • Listen to each question and answer as honestly as possible. Try not to over-prepare for the day - interviewers can sense when answers are a 'stock' response
     
  • If you don't understand a question - ask for clarification. If you don't know the answer - say so, don't make it up
     
  • Try to expand on an answer rather than responding "Yes" or "No"
     
  • If you're being interviewed by more than one interviewer, give attention to everyone equally
     
  • Prepare fully before the interview if you have to take a test
     
  • Leave questions to the end of the interview. It's normal policy to allow candidates time to ask questions at the end of an interview
     
  • Be honest about the experience. If you feel that the role isn't for you - say so politely. If you really want the job - again, say so and highlight why you're the person for it

On the day
It may seem difficult, but be calm. Relax, maintain eye contact and approach the interview in a friendly, confident and interested manner. Be courteous and be confident - after all, no one knows you better than you. Smile. Be yourself!
