Calling all IT top guns: low fares airline easyJet is on the hunt for a replacement head of IT to drive the company's IT strategy.
The airline's current IT head, Blair Stewart, who joined last year following easyJet's £374m acquisition of rival airline Go, is to return to his native New Zealand.
An easyJet spokesman said IT was central to the business's success and that the company was keen to make an appointment as soon as possible.
But he admitted that the right cultural fit was key. "It's a fast-moving environment and nothing stays the same for long. It's about pushing boundaries," he said.
"We're interested in someone with a positive attitude, but first and foremost we're looking for someone who's a first-class IT professional."
A large part of easyJet's success lies with its online reservation system, which helps to keep seats full and costs low. Nearly 95 per cent of its bookings are handled over the internet.
The airline employs 3,500 people, has 70 planes, and carries 20 million passengers a year.
