25 more Guyanese recruited as flight attendants

first_img– on Dynamic Airways Following a three-month selection process, 25 young Guyanese were added to the Dynamic International Airways team to serve as trainee flight attendants to their cabin crew.This recruitment on Thursday was made as the international carrier celebrates three years of operations in Guyana through their local franchise, Roraima Airways.Present at the recruitment ceremony on Friday was the Chief Executive Officer of Roraima Airways, Captain Gerald Gouveia, who expressed delight as another batch of Guyanese was recruited to the Dynamic family.“The Roraima/Dynamic partnership is creating employment for 25 young Guyanese,” expressed the Captain. He went on to say that, “The creation of jobs for young Guyanese everyday should be an obsession with every Guyanese leader, every business leader, and every political leader. Every day, the creation of jobs for young people is giving them hope for the future, giving real meaning to creating a better life. This is what we at Roraima have been doing and we are very pleased and proud of that.”Moreover, Gouveia pointed out that, “These young people who are selected have been selected after a long and tedious process. As such, he further indicated that only the cream of the crop were selected.With that, Gouveia congratulated the new recruits, while urging them to make the best of the opportunity. As a matter of fact, he noted that the job will often take them away from their families thereby condemning them for their choice to serve.Also speaking at the event hosted at the Duke Lodge was a previous recruit to Dynamic Airlines, who later went on to be a captain. Amber Lowe pointed out to the incoming individuals that they now hold the responsibility of being ambassadors of Guyana and encouraged the 25 to serve their country well.“I have to say, Dynamic was the foundation of my career. It kick started all that I knew I wanted to become and for that I will always truly be grateful for the opportunity I was given and now another 25 Guyanese people are been given,” relayed the young Captain.Lowe even pointed out that her experience in aviation can be compared to that of a superhero, given that it often results in taking risks to safeguard the life of others.At the event, the 25 new recruits were afforded the opportunity to extend gratitude to the Captain and both Roraima and Dynamic Airways. Furthermore, they expressed excitement to embark on a new journey and indicated that they are prepared to deliver quality customer service.The 25 recruits are set to leave for New York this Sunday to commence preparations for their journey as Dynamic flight attendants. They will then return to commence training in Guyana on June 12.This batch marks the largest recruit since Dynamic’s arrival in Guyana with the former intakes still attached to the airline. To date, Dynamic has taken into their wings a total of about 56 Guyanese to serve as attendants onboard their flights.last_img read more

‘THOUSANDS OF FAMILIES WITH EMPTY CHAIRS AT CHRISTMAS’ TD TELLS PROTEST

first_imgHUNDREDS of people travelled from all over the county today to Buncrana to protest at the ongoing Government austerity programme ahead of this week’s budget and heard a local TD talk of the ’empty chairs’ at Christmas due to mass emigration.Donegal North East Sinn Féin TD, Pádraig Mac Lochlainn said that the large turnout sent “a clear message to the three Government Oireachtas members in Donegal to take to their Fine Gael and Labour colleagues in Government; Inishowen and Donegal says no to further cuts and austerity.”Deputy Mac Lochlainn said: “The deep concern in Inishowen and Donegal about further cuts is palpable. Already huge numbers of our workforce are unemployed and thousands of mostly young people have emigrated across the county. “Many chairs will be empty at the dinner tables of Donegal homes this Christmas.“In our fully costed pre budget submission, Sinn Féin have proved that there is a better way. We have to stop strangling our own people at every budget to pay the debts of reckless international gamblers.”He went on: “Here in Inishowen, we now hear talk of garda stations closing in Malin and Culdaff, beds being lost at Buncrana Nursing Unit and Carndonagh Community Hospital, and the vital NowDoc service being downgraded. We also have seen funding removed from our schools, student grants slashed and more education costs pushed onto hard pressed families.“At some stage, this madness has to stop. How much damage will be done to our community, public and physical infrastructure before this Government realise that the well has long since dried up. How much of the life our people will they sqeeze before they stand up against this profound injustice that forces our people to pay for the recklessness and unbridled greed of global capitalism that gambled on private Irish banks like Anglo. All the rules of the game have been torn up. This is sheer madness and not one international economist can understand it. “You can not grow an economy and create jobs and new taxes while imposing crushing cuts and austerity year after year after year. This approach has failed dramatically yet our Government will stand up and tell the troika of the EU/ ECB/ and IMF that it has to stop. In particular, we have to stand up to the ECB.”He added: “Future generations will ask us what we did about it. Today’s protest shows that the people of Inishowen fought back and said no more.”‘THOUSANDS OF FAMILIES WITH EMPTY CHAIRS AT CHRISTMAS’ TD TELLS PROTEST was last modified: December 4th, 2011 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:buncranaprotestlast_img read more
