Since 2009, Virgin Australia has had a focus on supporting sustainable employment for Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander People. From front line to corporate and leadership positions, the careers of more than 200 Indigenous Australians have taken flight with us.

We offer exciting jobs opportunities that can define your career, while being a part of vibrant and supportive community of passionate aviation professionals. In fact, dozens of Indigenous team members established long term, rewarding careers and stayed with us for over five years! Many more have used the skills and experiences they’ve gained to go on and achieve successful careers outside of Virgin Australia.

Cabin Crew, Guest Services & Pit Crew

We’ve partnered with Diversity Dimensions for our cabin crew, guest services (check in) and pit crew (baggage handlers) opportunities and recruit throughout the year in Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. These sessions are highly informative and aim to help you prepare and to put your best business foot forward when applying for a position with Virgin Australia. To see if there are any sessions coming up or available, visit the Virgin Australia Careers website.

To ensure our operation remains a culturally safe place for all team members, if you’re successful in one of these roles, we’ll link you with an Indigenous mentor.
