​Virgin, EasyJet And TUI Offer Up Jobs To Former Thomas Cook Staff

​Virgin, EasyJet And TUI Offer Up Jobs To Former Thomas Cook Staff

Off the back of Thomas Cook's collapse, you'd expect a great deal of anger and upset from the British public.

But to our surprise we've actually seen the complete opposite, as people rally to help those who have been affected in whatever way they can.

First, passengers organised whip rounds for staff after being told of the company's demise, with crew on board left in the dark whether or not they'd even get paid for their work that day. Taxis offered out free rides for workers so they could get home. Football clubs dished out free tickets to games.

Now rival airlines are also stepping in to provide more long-term assistance, with companies like Virgin, easyJet and TUI all offering up jobs to axed Thomas Cook staff.

Several such jobs have been advertised online, including on the the Virgin Careers website, which is on the lookout for former Thomas Cook cabin crew.

The advert said: "We have a set up a specific recruitment path to support any Thomas Cook Cabin Crew after the sad announcement that the company has ceased operations.

"If you are committed to the highest professional standards and delivering for our customers then we'd love to talk to you."

EasyJet apparently issued a message to its staff advising that the company is currently recruiting for cabin crew in several UK locations, along with two Berlin bases, urging them to spread the word.

It also announced it would be holding 'a number of drop in sessions' specifically for Thomas Cook staff around the UK and would be 'expanding some of our existing scheduled assessment centres'.

An easyJet spokesperson told The Sun the company would be sharing further details about employment opportunities in the coming days, adding: "Everyone at easyJet is saddened by the news about Thomas Cook and appreciates the anxiety that those working for them will be facing."

TUI, formerly Thomson, is another airline offering up help.
