Leadership isn’t always easy but it is tremendously rewarding. Especially in a company such as Virgin Atlantic that believes our people are central to our success, and make us, quite literally, who we are.

On the outside, we’re a glowing brand – passionate about our customers, loved for our pioneering spirit, our incredible services and the way we make people feel. On the inside, we’re strictly operational and a lean organisation made up of many teams and departments that thrive in a hard working yet honest, open culture.

Because of that, we have lots of different roles and there are many different aspects to the business – from marketing and communications to safety and security. This is part of what makes Virgin Atlantic such a special place to work. Wherever you think you might fit into Virgin Atlantic, each leadership role requires some common qualities and characteristics.

We look for people who:

  • Thrive on the success of others and actively look for opportunities to help people succeed.
  • Get involved in the business, make an effort to connect with others, collaborate and behave respectfully.

  • Build brilliant relationships that help you get your work done, and others get their work done.
  • Can handle fast pace and ambiguity.
  • Are passionate about customer service whether that’s external or internal.
  • Have sound commercial insight, application and judgement.
  • Are able to balance demands that often compete with each other.
  • Have the ability to cut through complex issues and adjust your plans as you go.
