Bring on wonderful careers.

We're on a mission to bring new and uplifting experiences to our guests, transforming flying from simply 'nice', to something wonderful.

Like any good mission, this one starts with our people.

Which is why we encourage our team to embody the fun, laid back, authentic spirit we've become famous for. Because when they're free to be themselves, they're better able to own their personal responsibilities and go the extra mile to help our guests.

Flight Operations Technical Support Officer

Hello. We’re Virgin Australia. And we’re back (in a big way). 

We’re the airline that’s always done things a little differently. Our way. The Virgin way. For us, flying is so much more than simply taking off and landing (although we understand that is quite important). It’s about going the extra mile, in the air and on the ground, to create authentic experiences that put our guests firmly at the heart of everything we do.

We pride ourselves on recruiting the right people into the right roles and we’re always looking for team members in all specialties to join our crew. Virgin Australia Group team members are pretty unique, and we all have the same DNA inside us which makes us want to go one step further for our customers and each other. When we live our shared values, we can do things that most people would think impossible, and we think that’s pretty cool.

As a result, every person we come into contact with – be it our guests, customers, colleagues or the community, will feel and experience better outcomes, based on the interactions we have with them.
