5 Reasons to Work for a Global Airline
Ever wanted to travel around the world and work abroad? Some of the most prestigious, global airline companies can offer you your dream career – here are your top 5 reasons to work for a global airline.
Company growth = more job opportunities
Some of the biggest companies in the world are global airlines, which means there are more available job opportunities across multiple sectors. Emirates, for example, employ over 50,000 employees and operate in 78 countries across 6 continents; this means they are a highly diverse, cultural based company that attracts employees from all over the world. Great reasons to work for a global airline are the number and variety of career pathways and job opportunities available across every part of the aviation industry.
Travel opportunities – work around the world
If you work for a global airline, the likelihood is that you will have the opportunity to travel around the world and work outside of your country for a world-wide company. Global airlines host a powerful market attracting candidates looking for a travel-based career. For example, large airlines such as Etihad offer fulfilling careers in bustling hubs, across many airports around the world. Nevertheless, if you’re more interested in working within the airline’s headquarters – like Abu Dhabi for Etihad – then this is also achievable.
Embrace new cultures and enjoy locational benefits
Looking for a change and a new experience to embrace? If you’re still unsure whether you want to work for a global airline, then consider the opportunity of discovering a new part of the world and enjoying the country’s locational/financial benefits. Some of the largest global airlines operate in a number of the best countries to work, meaning that as an employee you will be able to – for example – enjoy a tax-free salary whilst working in the UAE, benefit from a progressive health-care system in Germany and appreciate a laid-back culture with a warm climate in New Zealand. Nevertheless, it is always worth doing your research before making the move to another country, as some cultures will be diversely different to your own.
Your CV will look impressive
