We’re committed to ensuring that our neighboring communities share in the benefits of having a major international airport nearby, so it is particularly pleasing to host this jobs fair on our doorstep in Wythenshawe. There is a wide range of roles available, both with Manchester Airport and its partners, and I very much look forward to welcoming all successful candidates when they start their career journey here.”

There are more than 650 different roles available – it’s great to have these opportunities for residents here in Wythenshawe and Sale East on our doorstep. Aviation is an exciting sector to work in and I’m pleased that my constituents will be part of the team supporting the airport in its recovery after the pandemic.
