Low cost airline easyJet has appointed one of Britain’s oldest cabin crew members as its over 45s recruitment ambassador. Pam Clark, was 53 when picked up a job advertisement on an easyJet flight to Madrid 20 years ago – and was inspired to fulfil a childhood dream. Already a grandmother, and soon to become a great grandmother, the 73 year old has worked on over 4500 flights. She will encourage more older people to become cabin crew staff at an airline which has seen a 160% increase in over 60s taking up the job since 2022. Pam says: “My advice to anyone over the age of 45 thinking about applying for a role as cabin crew at easyJet would be to go for it. When I applied for the role 20 years ago I knew that my age and experience meant I had something really valuable to offer. “Nowadays, I’m meeting more and more colleagues like me who have made a brave career change later in life. Don’t be afraid. “My favourite part of the job has been meeting passengers from all over the world and giving them the most enjoyable travel experience possible. I’m proud to work at a company that puts people first.”
