Job seekers take note - Etihad Airways is holding 11 recruitment days during February as it aims to attract new cabin crew.

The Abu Dhabi-based carrier is holding the recruitment days in five different cities: Kiev, London, Belgrade, Milan and Rome.

Etihad said it will hold invitation-only assessments in Abu Dhabi on February 4,11,18 and 25, plus open days for food and beverage managers and inflight chefs on February 9 and 23.

“To support the rapid growth of Etihad Airways, we are hosting our recruitment drive in these cities, all of which are strategically important markets for the airline,” said Mark Scoble, Etihad Airways’ acting vice president guest services, who added that the cabin crew team hails from more than 115 nationalities.

A statement said that cabin crew are provided with training, medical insurance, transport, uniforms and full furnished company accomodation in Abu Dhabi.

Etihad added 10 new destinations last year, including Phuket, San Francisco and Dallas. Over the past three years the airline has been acquiring equity stakes in struggling carriers, including Italy's Alitalia, to boost its geographic footprint and connectivity.

Emirates Airline is also on the hunt for new cabin crew as it expands its fleet, with events taking place throughout next month and March.

Qatar Airways is holding recruitment days throughout February.
