Qatar Airways to recruit significant number of Lankans for global operations
Qatar Airways Group says it is looking to onboard a significant number of new employees from Sri Lanka to support its global operations and enhance customer experience over the coming months.
Starting from 15 September, the network will start accepting applications from Sri Lankan citizens for various roles across divisions.
As the company looks to rebuild the workforce and fuel expansion, the Sri Lankan recruitment drive is part of the group’s global recruitment drive – the biggest talent acquisition in the history of the airline industry.
In the island country, the group is targeting to hire staff for its various divisions ranging from Qatar Airways, Qatar Duty Free, Qatar Aviation Services, Qatar Airways Catering Company, Qatar Distribution Company to the Dhiafatina Hotels.
With a major focus towards growing the Customer Experience team, the group plans to hire a substantial number of staff for various roles such as Culinary, Corporate and Commercial, Management, Cargo, Customer Service, Engineering, Flight Operations, Ground Services, Safety and Security, Digital, Front of House, Administration, as well as Sales and Finance.
Qatar Airways’ recruitment drive in the country will be held in Colombo on 15 and 16 September and interested applicants can start applying for roles online via Qatar Airways career page: qatarairways.com/recruitment.
Apart from being a part of the only airline in the world that has won the World’s Best Airline six times, selected candidates will also be able to take advantage of the competitive tax-free income, including accommodation and allowances.
Qatar Airways Group CEO Akbar Al Baker said: “We are committed to bolstering our team and further strengthening the customer experience for travellers, while we boost our operational capabilities by seeking the right people.
Qatar Airways has always had a special bond with the island nation of Sri Lanka and with this recruitment drive, we are reiterating our commitment to the market.
“As the World’s Best Airline, we take immense pride in our efforts to create a memorable experience for flyers and it is only possible with the constant dedication and discipline of our workforce. Keeping the spirit high, we invite applications from the talented pool of Sri Lankans who aspire to be a part of the Qatar Airways family.
“Working with Qatar Airways provides the opportunity to explore the world, and live in the vibrant cosmopolitan city of Doha, home to the FIFA World Cup 2022, offering world-class shopping, beautiful beaches and a thriving arts and culture scene.”
As the group gears up for the highly anticipated FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 tournament, the global recruitment drive is another testament of Qatar Airways’ role at the forefront of the ongoing recovery of the global aviation sector.
As travel restrictions ease, the national carrier of the State of Qatar continues to rebuild its network, which currently stands at over 150 destinations. With more frequencies being added to key hubs, Qatar Airways offers unrivalled connectivity to passengers, making it easy for them to change their travel dates or destination if they need to.
