Don't just go into teaching because you are looking for long holidays. To teach everyday you need to like children, be very patient and understanding. However I feel it is one of the most rewarding jobs out there.

The Social person's interests focus on some aspect of those people in their environment. In all cases the social person enjoys the personal contact of other people in preference to the impersonal dealings with things, data and ideas found in other groups.

Many will seek out positions where there is direct contact with the public in some advisory role, whether a receptionist or a counsellor. Social people are motivated by an interest in different types of people, and like diversity in their work environments. Many are drawn towards careers in the caring professions and social welfare area, whilst others prefer teaching and other 'informing' roles.

CityJet’s director of operations Robert Tatten said: “The launch of our new cadet programme will provide the start of an exciting career path for the successful applicants.

“CityJet has undergone significant growth in recent months, with, in addition to our Avro RJ85 fleet, eight Bombardier CRJ900s joining our new Nordic network and the arrival this summer of our new Superjet SSJ100s.

“This is definitely a great time to join CityJet and we look forward to welcoming our new recruits to our Cadet Programme later this year.”
