In response to a misleading fact-check conducted by Aaj News, Emirates Group has confirmed its plans to hire cabin crew in Islamabad and Karachi next month. The fact-check had labeled the recruitment drive as “Fake,” but our independent verification has confirmed the authenticity of the hiring process. Emirates will be conducting invite-only interviews in both cities on the specified dates mentioned in the article and on the official Emirates Group’s careers page.
Emirates, one of the world’s leading airlines, aims to expand its workforce through this recruitment drive. The parent company of the Dubai-based airline, Emirates Group, will oversee the hiring process. The airline has scheduled “invite-only” interviews for prospective cabin crew candidates. The interviews will take place on 2nd August in Karachi and 30th August in Islamabad. Interested individuals are required to apply through the Emirates Group’s website to be considered for shortlisting. After applying, candidates will receive an email containing details regarding the interview location and time.
Emirates is also organizing open days in various cities worldwide, where candidates can participate without submitting an application in advance. The Emirates Group is actively seeking skilled and talented individuals to fill vacancies in several cities globally. It is important to note that interested candidates from Kazakhstan are required to apply online before appearing for an interview in Astana. For Russia, Emirates Group has partnered with Global Vision to recruit for the available positions.
In the previous fiscal year 2022-23, Emirates Group successfully recruited 17,160 employees for various roles, expanding its total workforce to over 102,000 by the end of March 2023.
