Our Guest Services agents are customer service and problem-solving experts who get their joy from helping people. Bright, brilliant faces who show the best of who we are to the world. The first face our guests see. Naturally caring and empathetic. Ambassadors for everything that makes Virgin Australia great.
In our Guest Services team, you’ll be helping our guests when they arrive at the airport, checking people in and making sure all their documentation is correct, rebooking flights and supporting them through flight disruptions and cancellations. You’ll also ensure unaccompanied kids and guests with disabilities have an easy, enjoyable experience. At the gate, you’ll help board flights and complete other arrival and departure tasks – including some time in the spotlight doing service announcements for our guests. And loads more…

You can apply for a guest services agent position online at our Virgin Australia Careers website. You will need to create a user profile and complete an application form, as well as upload your resume for the Recruitment Team to review.
Guest services agents operate from a number of different bases around Australia (i.e. Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Sydney). While you might be willing to relocate in order to join our team, you should only apply for one base. Applications for multiple bases are not accepted and can mean that each application is withdrawn due to being ineligible.
If we are not currently recruiting for your preferred base, then hold off applying until you see that we are hiring again for that port. You can be one of the first to know about opportunities to join the team by subscribing to our Job Mail service or regularly visiting the Virgin Australia careers website. As applications cannot be transferred to between bases, we encourage you to apply only for your preferred location.
You must be at least 18 years of age at the time of application to apply for a guest services role.
We recommend wearing appropriate business attire to the Recruitment Day.
You must attend a Recruitment Day in the port in which you have applied. The information given throughout the recruitment process will be specific to each port.
Once Recruitment Days are scheduled at the base you have applied for and your application has been short-listed will receive an invitation via email. This email will contain all the information you need to know about the Recruitment Day, including the location, date, time and what to bring. Please note that Recruitment Days are organised around the operational requirements of the business and can be scheduled several weeks or months apart.
The recruitment process length can vary depending on the business’s operational requirements. We do not recruit to specific numbers and hold Recruitment Days throughout the year. Therefore, if you are successful throughout the recruitment process and no training schools are available you will be placed in a talent pool for future training schools and will be invited to attend when one is available.
If your application is not shortlisted to attend a Recruitment Day, we ask that you wait 12 months before reapplying, so that there’s time for you to develop your skills and experience before being reconsidered.
If your application is not progressed after attending the Recruitment Day, we ask that you wait 12 months before reapplying, so that there’s time for you to develop your skills and experience before being reconsidered.
