A few months ago I decided to apply to transfer to Gatwick Fleet, so I thought I would do a small quick post on my process and answer a few questions about it.
Applied: 26th April 2018
I applied internally through the company website so I didn’t have to go through the whole assessment day process. It was a quick and simple 5 minute application.
Invited to Interview: 1st May 2018
I heard back really quickly and the next step was to go online and book a slot for an internal interview with someone from Gatwick.
Interview: 15th May 2018
As I was still flying throughout the month, the quickest I could book an interview was two weeks later on one of my days off. I went to the interview in my uniform (instead of the usually business wear) as this is what many people have done before purely because it is what I would be wearing for the job.
Interview Response: 22nd May 2018
The process seems to be a lot quicker internally, as I heard back from Gatwick really quickly. They sent an email saying that I had been successful in the interview and were offering me a place at Gatwick Fleet. I just had to send an email responding back whether I wanted to accept the offer or not. However, they were enable to give me a start date as I had to wait until Mixed Fleet released me due to manpower at the base.
Contract Sent: 9th July 2018
Finally received my contract in the post with my start date and all the information about my terms and conditions of what I needed to do before I transferred over.
Start Date: 15th August 2018
The date I officially transfer and start at Gatwick Fleet. I start off with a ground day at the Crew centre just so that I get used to everything there and how it works. I collect my new ID and spend the day there before my first flight out the next day!
I have been at mixed fleet for over two years now and have got to see so many destinations which I am truly grateful for. However, I fancied a change of scenery. See some more exciting new routes, meet some amazing new people! So see you soon Gatwick Fleet and thank you Mixed Fleet for some amazing memories!
