Emirates is currently hiring! The Dubai airline has posted news of a cabin crew hiring drive in the UAE, looking for jet-setting hopefuls to join its multinational team.

The airline is set to host an assessment day in Dubai, details of which are released to hopeful applicants upon registration.

There is a set criteria for applicants. According to the airline "they should be at least 21 years of age at the time of joining and have an arm reach of 212cm when standing on tiptoes."

Cabin crew are seen on the steps leading to an Emirates A380 airplane, the world's largest passenger aircraft, at Manchester Airport after it's arrival on a flight from Dubai, Manchester, England, Wednesday September 1, 2010. When the CAA Aerodrome Standards Division gave their a approval, the airport joined a select group of only 17 global airports to be certified meaning Manchester becomes the first regional airport in the World to have a regular service by an A380. Manchester Airport has invested more than £10 million upgrading the airfield to the standards needed for the Emirates super-jumbo. This includes reconstructing a new aircraft stand with state of the art equipment including an advance docking system, which guides the pilot onto the stand and into the correct position for the unique double airbridge to connect.

Emirates is looking to hire both men and women, and further criteria includes: a minimum height of 160cm, a Grade 12 high school qualification (or the equivalent), written and spoken fluency in English, no visible tattoos while in Emirates cabin crew uniform (cosmetic and bandage coverings aren’t allowed), and physical fitness, with an undisclosed "healthy" Body Mass Index (BMI).

"You should be determined to always perform well," the recruitment site reads. "And no doubt you’ll be able to manage a pretty demanding work schedule. Also, you’ll be culturally aware and reflect who we are – professional, empathetic, progressive, visionary and cosmopolitan."

Emirates cabin crew avail a number of benefits, from flying to 159 destinations across six continents, to accommodation, medical and dental cover and discounts at business and outlets across Dubai.
