RECKON YOU’VE GOT the skills to impress Michael O’Leary?

It’s digital and IT talent the Ryanair boss will be on the lookout for, as the airline begins a recruitment campaign for 50 ‘web stars’.

The carrier’s planning to create fifty high-end jobs at its offices in Swords, north Dublin — and the boss himself will be hosting an open day for interested candidates on Saturday week.

According to the company:

Ryanair is recruiting web developers, designers, analysts, software engineers, SEO and content, CRM and email specialists to transform Europe’s largest travel website (, develop a world leading digital marketing platform (in April) and help create a brilliant new mobile app (from June).

O’Leary will be joined by the company’s IT and web development managers for the open day at Ryanair’s offices in Airside on 8 February.

In a break with tradition, the famously budget-conscious airline will even throw in a free meal:

Interested candidates should register on the website and those selected to attend will enjoy a free breakfast and free flights to a destination of their choice.

You can find more details at — and registration closes at 6pm on Monday next.

Good luck!
