What is the Recruitment process?

Our recruitment process changes depending on the type of position we’re recruiting for, but it might include interviews, assessment centres and testing. To see more information about the types of assessment we use, please visit the page on our assessment process.

How long does it take to process my application?

This varies from role to role, however you can rest assured that we respond to every candidate with an outcome as soon as possible.

Why haven’t I been offered an interview?

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 done?

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, please view our recruitment journey page.

I have received a job offer but I am not sure 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 sometimes sent in response to CVs or your contact details being posted on recruitment sites and other websites.

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.

For more information about what to expect before we make a formal job offer please view our recruitment journey page.

I've been offered the role, when can I start? 

We will advise you of your start date in our schedule which accompanies your terms and conditions of employment.

Your start date may also vary depending on the availability of any training you require as part of your new role or any notice period that you have with your current employer.

What jobs are available across the Virgin Group?

There are lots of different Virgin companies you could work for; however we only recruit people for Virgin Holidays, Virgin Atlantic and Virgin Cargo. For other roles in the Virgin Group, like Virgin Trains, Virgin Media, Virgin Active etc. please visit Virgin careers website.
