The airport and neighbouring businesses are recruiting to over 350 vacancies.
Jobs at the airport include customer-facing roles within the passenger services team, security, car parking and Escape Lounge. Also recruiting are the airport’s retailers (World Duty Free), bars, restaurants and food outlets (Autogrill, Greggs and Frankie and Benny’s). Airline JET2 and check-in agents, Swissport, have vacancies too.
Global air freight specialists UPS and DHL are also attending the jobs fair as part of their recruitment drive for more cargo handling roles.
Training and skills
The airport’s own academy is a dedicated employment and education facility for adults. Working alongside Stephenson College and Jobcentre Plus, it supports people into employment. Job-seekers who feel they would benefit from more training and support before applying for jobs can discuss their needs with tutors who will be on hand during the jobs fair.
Colleen Hempson, East Midlands Airport’s Corporate Social Responsibility Manager, says: “Serving just under 5 million passengers a year and as the UK’s busiest dedicated freight airport, the 24-hour operation makes it one of the most diverse businesses to work for in this region. With so many varied roles on offer plus careers and skills advice, the jobs fair is a great event for finding out what it’s like to work or train here.”
Entry to the jobs fair is free and there is no need to book in advance. Please note, the jobs are not first come, first serve.
