  • Graduate are welcome to apply – it’s a steep learning curve but we will give you the tools to succeed.

Meet The Team!

It would be arrogant to say that we have the best talent acquisition team in aviation but we definitely do. We don’t hide behind recruitment agencies its very much ''Old Skool'' recruitment. We are a close-knit bunch who knuckle down and just get on with it (with one hand tied behind our backs). Mark is our leader, he’s English (married to an Irishwomen), likes cricket, supports Birmingham City and definitely needs his coffee first thing in the morning (and he likes donuts). Claire is from Cork, she’s good craic (talks rather quickly) and enjoys taking advantage of our staff travel privileges at weekends – she’s destined to marry a pilot. Michelle is from Swords, she’s our fitness queen, drinks strange tea, attends even stranger festivals and is our local fountain of knowledge. Growing up in Swords she’s a tough cookie. Both Michelle and Claire look after HQ. Angelo recruits all of our cadet pilots, he’s from Sicily and is proud of his heritage. Angelo has been with Ryanair since he left school and his blood runs blue. When he returns home to Sicily we insist he brings back some authentic cannoli. Paul recruits our direct entry pilots and is the father figure of the team, he is based at our assessment centre in Stansted and his favourite time of the week is when he arrives home on a Friday evening and tucks into a cappuchino and two apple pies from Mc Donalds at Dublin airport before heading back home to the tranquillity of Waterford.
