Lucy – I’ve never given vaccinations before, but most certainly my Virgin Atlantic medical training has been invaluable.
Alanna – All the medical training has helped massively. Our customer service skills are invaluable. Patients can’t see a smile under a mask so a calming friendly chat and making someone relax and laugh always helps!
Sam – It is amazing hearing the doctors and nurses saying, “What training do the crews get, they have fitted in so well and are just up for anything, so willing to learn new skills”. Their conclusion was that they were hired based on that personality type. They are so used to working with a different team each day that they can just slot into any gaps within the team.
Ania – Being a vaccinator is a first for me. Still, because of how we are trained as cabin crew, no matter what gets in the way, we just get on and deal with the situation.
Mohammed – Working as a team member, problem-solving, working under pressure as well as diplomacy and empathy are all skills that help me in the vaccine centre.
Donna – Our experience with Virgin Atlantic has been a godsend. It’s all about teamwork, our medical training and our customer service skills. These helped us get the job with the NHS and helped when we undertook extensive E-learning and in-house training run by the vaccination hub.
Charlotte – As cabin crew, we automatically make people feel at ease which I think is so important. When completing the online learning, a question will pop up and you find yourself back in the Virgin medical training class remembering the answer.
Natasha – Without my training and experience from Virgin, I would never have been able to do this job. I am really loving it.
