  • ​I have been a pilot on the Airbus Family for over 25 years and worked mainly in America and Europe. When I started looking for a pilot job in the Internet jungle, I got in direct conversation with Cristina at Rishworth. Sure thing, she answered all questions big and small, but most importantly, I knew then I was dealing with serious responsible people and not an automatic email response. This is an industry made of people to take care and transport people, the filter and selection process needs to be done accordingly, and that is exactly how I felt with Cristina. She was there every step of the way. I am now happily working for BRAATHENS in Stockholm. Thanks Cristina.
