This group includes 5 recent graduates and 13 current students who have been tagged by easyJet and received conditional job offers.

Alistair Smith, Graduate Services Manager at Leading Edge Aviation was particularly thrilled by the news, stating that “it’s wonderful to see so many happy students who have procured a conditional job offer with easyJet, before they’ve even finished training; it’s a testament to their hard work.” Andy McFarlane, CEO of Leading Edge Aviation shared this excitement, emphasising that “this fantastic news not only highlights the exceptional talent and dedication of our students and graduates, but also underscores the strengthened relationship between Leading Edge and easyJet. Together, we are paving the way for the next generation of aviation professionals.”
