Flying is undeniably glamorous but some lucky people get to do it for a living.
Easyjet is one of Britain’s biggest airlines and it’s offering you the chance to fly on board with a jet setting opportunity.
Despite already operating 860 flights a day to 40 countries, Easyjet is looking to expand its workforce and you don’t even need experience to be a part of it all.
That means you could travel the world, flying to exotic destinations from Gatwick Airport, where the airline has a base for new staff.
You need no in-cabin experience, although it probably helps to not have a fear of flying!
