In October 2015, we launched the Amy Johnson Flying Initiative with the aim of tackling an industry-wide stereotype and doubling the number of female pilots attracted to 12% over two years. We had a fantastic response to this initiative which saw us recruit 33 female new entrant pilots and achieve the 12% target in year one. But why stop there? We have now set a more ambitious target that 20% of new entrant pilots attracted by easyJet in 2020 will be female.
We are really excited to relaunch our Amy Johnson Flying Initiative for our next recruitment season and hope to see a whole new generation of female pilots inspired to start a career in aviation with us. Last year thousands of talented females reached out to us about the opportunities with easyJet and we’ll be looking to support motivated individuals to come join us in generation easyJet. All pilots in easyJet receive the same fantastic training, so we know that it won’t take long for you to build a fantastic career with us.
We will be using this initiative to keep you up to date on the latest easyJet news, the opportunities available and the different ways that you can apply to join us regardless of your background.
“A career as a pilot at easyJet is interesting and rewarding and we want more women to bring their skills to the role.”
