London Stansted’s latest jobs fair is set for take-off next week as over 30 airport companies showcase the hundreds of exciting career opportunities on offer across the airport ahead of the peak summer season.
The Stansted Airport Employment and Skills Academy is hosting the event on 8th May and has signed-up a host of firms promoting over 350 new full and part time jobs to join the 12,000 strong workforce already at the single biggest employment site in the east of England.
Companies attending the fair include MAG, Jet2.com, Ryanair, Border Force, Up & Away Aviation, World Duty Free, Mace, Pret A Manger, UPS, Swissport and Blue Handling plus many more from all sectors of the airport’s operation. Roles on offer include cabin crew, engineering, ground crew, retail managers and assistants and security officers.
Marcella M’Rabety, London Stansted’s Head of Corporate Social Responsibility, said:
“These are exciting times at London Stansted with record numbers of passengers choosing to fly from the airport and a host of new projects underway to improve the passenger experience so there’s never been a better time to join the 12,000 people already helping drive our growth and success.
“Our latest jobs fair is the perfect opportunity for people to find out more about the hundreds of new jobs and long-term careers being created by Stansted’s continuing growth and success.
“Job seekers will be able to meet potential employers face-to-face, obtain careers advice and explore the free training opportunities, apprenticeships and education programmes available at the airport.
“They can also discover more about the many benefits of working at the airport, including the Airport Travel Card that offers up to 80% discount on a wide range of rail, bus and coach fares and is available to all on-site staff.”
Dom Fitzgerald, who lives in Braintree and now works as a security team leader at the airport having attended last year’s jobs fair, said:
“I attended the jobs fair last year where the team from the airport instantly made me feel at ease and introduced me to the companies whose roles I was most interested in. They showed me the diverse range of jobs on offer, whether full time, part time, shifts or 9-5, all were available. Everyone was helpful, friendly and informative offering real jobs. I started on security the following month as a team leader and have never looked back.”
The jobs fair takes place at the airport’s Radisson Blu hotel from 10am to 2pm on Wednesday 8th May with free parking and free public transport for all train and bus services with direct links to Stansted Airport available for attendees who pre-register. To confirm attendance, sign-up here...
