Do your best to find out the most you can about your specific engineering category, whether it be Electronics, Mechanical, Civil etc. Approach companies to try and get experience whilst you are at college, that way you have a running start on how to use the most up to date packages and instruments that companies have, and that then gets you the work experience when you finish college.

Creative people are drawn to careers and activities that enable them to take responsibility for the design, layout or sensory impact of something (visual, auditory etc). They may be drawn towards the traditional artistic pursuits such as painting, sculpture, singing, or music. Or they may show more interest in design, such as architecture, animation, or craft areas, such as pottery and ceramics.

Creative people use their personal understanding of people and the world they live in to guide their work. Creative people like to work in unstructured workplaces, enjoy taking risks and prefer a minimum of routine.

If you’re interested in changing the world of online travel we want to hear from you - says the Ryanair Labs recruitment website.

Our hiring process is simple, we usually do two interviews before making an offer and we don’t string people along for months or send them to assessment centres to be poked and prodded. We trust you to convince us that you’ve got what it takes.

Ryanair is still recruiting for its state-of-the-art digital and IT innovation hub which is based at its Dublin Office Campus in Swords.

In 2014 Ryanair announced the recruitment of 200 new staff to develop “a world class online travel platform”.

The company set out to embrace the internet, a step which saw the replacement of their old “1990s-style” website last year with a new up-to date online experience. 

The search continues for the ideal candidates. Current vacancies with Ryanair Labs include:

  • Software development
  • UX and Design
  • Data
  • QA and Testing
  • Media and Marketing
