It's the job where you get paid to travel the world, but to work as cabin crew with Emirates there are specific requirements you need to meet before you can step on board.

The Dubai-based airline giant held a recruitment day in Sydney last weekend where they cast their eye over potential employees, the Daily Mail reports.

And those looking to be the face of Emirates on board their aircraft needed to have an arm reach of 212cm while standing on their tiptoes and abide by a series of grooming standards.

They also needed to be at least 160cm tall and have no tattoos which could be seen while they are working in uniform.

As part of the airline's 'application tips', females have to provide a photo along with their application showing them wearing full-make-up, neat and tidy hair, no accessories and there must be 'good lighting to avoid shadows'.

And if they make it to the cabin crew assessment day, females are required to wear high heels, again have neatly tied hair and also clean and manicured nails.

Make-up again needs to be worn, including lipstick - Emirates is known for its signature red lipstick - with lip gloss not allowed.

Males needed to be clean shaven with no make-up, have short hair styled with minimal product, both in their application photo and on their assessment day, and also have clean and manicured nails.

Both males and females needed to be in smart business attire - full-length hosiery is also required for females and if they opt for a skirt it has to be one-inch below the knee.

Glasses and coloured contact lenses are not allowed to be worn in application photos.

The airline currently operates almost 100 flights a week from Australia to their Dubai hub, some non-stop and others via Asia, on a mix of Airbus A380 and Boeing 777 aircraft.

Benefits offered to cabin crew include a tax-free salary and concessional travel tickets.

Barry Brown, Emirates Divisional Vice President for Australasia, told Nine News the airline 'continues to grow both globally and within Australia'.
