cut-e has a proven track record working with airlines
cut-e has a proven track record working with some of the world’s largest and most respected aviation companies across all areas of their business. Whether with ground staff, flight analysts, cabin crew, apprentices, pilots or head office staff, cut-e has expertise in running efficient and effective recruitment processes.
There is increasing pressure to attract and recruit the best people into the aviation industry whilst simultaneously reducing costs and time-to-hire. Companies need both proven and sustainable recruitment processes and selection tools that work across disparate geographies, in multiple languages, online and can be supported by a relatively small in-house recruitment team. But a solid attraction, recruitment and engagement process is more than just the tools you choose to deploy.

Airline recruitment trends and challenges and how recruiters are responding
HR Director - 23rd January 2017, UK
Job seekers are attracted to airlines because of their strong brands, the training they provide and the international career opportunities they offer. However, there are four clear characteristics that make airline recruitment unusually challenging, particularly when you’re recruiting flight professionals. David Barrett explains the key challenges facing airline recruiters – and how to overcome them.

Predicting who will be a successful pilot
onrec - 1st November 2016,
Pilot Chesley Sullenberger was hailed as a national hero in the United States when he landed his stricken plane on the Hudson River in 2009, saving the lives of all passengers and crew. A new report from cut-e, based on a series of studies, empirical findings and theoretical considerations, claims it’s now possible to predict which candidates will make safe and successful pilots. The report identifies the specific abilities, competencies and personality characteristics that pilots need, to master the various tasks and challenges they’ll face in the role. This means that psychometric tests can now be used at an early stage of the recruitment process, to assess for these attributes and to filter out unsuitable applicants.
The predictive power of assessment for pilot selection
This White Paper explains how airline recruiters can now select pilots by predicting which candidates will safely and successfully fulfil the different requirements of the role. As well as the practical skills required to fly an aircraft, the paper highlights that pilots need:
- Interactive competencies (leadership, teamwork and interpersonal skills to manage the crew and cooperate with control towers, ground crew, air traffic control and flight dispatchers; the ability to give clear guidelines, resolve conflict and take charge in the event of threat, error or misfortune).
- Operational competencies (safety orientation; situational awareness; the ability to detect and manage errors; decision-making; planning and organising as well as customer and commercial orientation).
- Motivational competencies (self discipline; self management; assertiveness; resilience; drive; stress resistance and self development).
