Unfortunately, we can't interview everybody who applies, and there might be applicants who have more relevant skills & experience suited to the role profile. Please be advised that due to the amount of applications we receive we are unable to offer feedback to our external candidates.

What pre-employment screening is required?

If you're offered a role with us, we need you to provide us with a 5 year reference history. You'll also be asked to apply for a Criminal Records Certificate (CRC) and you'll need to cover this cost. If you have been resident in an overseas country for 6 months or longer within the last 5 years, we'll also require you to apply for a CRC specific to that country. Costs for this can vary between countries. If you have any questions about this process, we'll be happy to answer these during your interview. For more information follow the link recruitment journey.

I have received a job offer, but am not sure if it is genuine, what should I do?

We've recently been told that people have been receiving emails containing fake offers of employment with Virgin companies. These emails are often sent in response to CV's or your contact details being posted on recruitment sites and other websites. Or the emails have just been randomly sent to people.

These jobs don't exist and Virgin companies with genuine employment opportunities won't contact you in this way. If you've received a suspicious email, please don't send your personal details, money or respond in any way. Please contact escams@fly.virgin.com or the relevant Virgin Group company as soon as possible.

Sorry, but because of the amount of requests we receive, we can't offer work experience, internships or work placements at the moment.
