Ever wanted to be a pilot and live abroad?

Well now is your chance as Emirates are looking for experienced pilots in Ireland, but there's a catch... you HAVE TO move to Dubai.

The airline is holding recruitment roadshow in Dublin in the RDS today and there are some perks if you're successful. 

Staff are entitled to a tax free salary of €80,000, full dental and medical cover, 42 holiday days per year and a chauffeur to and from work.

Unfortunately (or luckily) you have to move to Dubai.

Enda Corneille is the Head of Emirates in Ireland and points to the fact that all "pilots and cabin crew are based in Dubai because really that's the centre of our hub."

"They could be positioned on flights to the US, to China, to wherever."

"You're based there and part of the package is accommodation."
