Air Emirates Senior Flight Stewardess Assessment.

Not all Cabin Crew are the same! The same grade that is, you can start in Economy, then when jobs become vacant apply and do a business class upgrade, and again if there are vacancies, a First Class Upgrade.
On board there are also Senior Fight Stewards / Stewardess; the SFS,  and the Purser. if the Purser is female she is easy to spot as she has a brown uniform, for the male Purses it is just a small difference in the tie that distinguishes them, for the SFS, there uniform is the same as the rest of the crew, you have to read the badge!
In March Emirates SFS positions were advertised and duly applied for. Although having had long term sickness with the fractured finger the Dolly with the Trolley did not expect to hear anything, as things like your sickness record, attendance record and feedback all count towards your chances of selection.
How nice then to receive this email:

''Thank you for your recent interest in SFS position.

We are pleased to inform you that your initial application has been successful and you have been shortlisted to attend an assessment centre. You will shortly receive a communication with regards to available dates and details on how to schedule an assessment.

This will be an exciting and challenging opportunity for you and will allow you to continue both your professional and personal development.

In the meantime if you require further clarification please contact your Cabin Crew Manager.

Congratulations on being shortlisted and we wish you every success in the future.

Kind regards,''

So there is a lot of work to do to prepare for this. ELearning and preparation and a full day at the assessment centre.
Fingers crossed!
