IPAMS, also known as the Industrial Personnel And Management Services is the only accredited recruitment agency of Saudia and the good news is that they accept walk-ins for initial screening for those who want to be a Saudia flight attendants. So yes, all you have to do is to follow all IPAMS instruction on how to apply for Saudia. Well there is another news.
Due to the Saudization where Saudi Arabian nationals are being given priority for employment, Saudia is only hiring Saudi nationals as of this writing. Don't lose hope though because there is most likely another chance that Saudia will be hiring other nationalities too. We just do not know when but it is better to make it into the pool as early as possible than to wait for an announcement that Saudia has opened its doors to flight attendants of other nationalities.
What does this all mean?
It means that should you pass the IPAMS screening process, you will be included in the shortlist for the next stages of recruitment once Saudia announces a hiring for flight attendants of other nationalities.
So should you just wait for the official announcement or should you already go and have yourself screened?
Well first and foremost, it's better to be first because we are pretty sure that once IPAMS announces a specific interview schedule or assessment day, they would be flooded with resumes. There might even be a chance where they might be able to hit the required number of qualified flight attendants for training even before they reach your resume. So we do highly suggest that you already pass and go through initial screening already.
So based on the IPAMS website http://www.ipams.com, you have to first register yourself at the JOB SEEKERS section. After which, you will have to follow these steps:
After you have registered and applied online in the JOB SEEKERS page, you will need to print the application form which you must bring with you when you report for initial screening.
Report immediately at the IPAMS Office for your initial screening. You need not wait for an IPAMS Officer to contact you for your initial screening. You can go right ahead and start your preliminary interview. IPAMS is open Mondays to Fridays 8:00am - 6:00pm. You must bring with you the following documents:
You need to be in proper business attire when reporting at the IPAMS office for your initial screening. Female applicants must come in blouse & knee-level skirt, with or without corporate coat, hair tied and pulled away from face, light make-up. Male applicants must come in long sleeves shirt with necktie, with or without corporate coat.
It also says that open days follow a whole different step but as of now, there is none yet in schedule.
So we highly encourage our cabin crew hopefulls to go and take action. Go through the initial screening already. If you make it, IPAMS will notify you about the next step.
