As part of its continuing recruitment campaign, Gatwick Airport in the UK has opened 400 positions across a range of departments to prepare for what it predicts will be a busy summer.
The latest recruitment drive forms part of the airport’s plans to ramp up operations and reopen its South Terminal, which was announced on March 27. The new roles announced include airport security officers, customer service executive, flow planner, digital performance analyst, principal mechanical engineer, transport engineering manager, engineering apprentice, IT change manager, IT service desk analyst, cyber and information systems security analyst, IT service desk shift lead, talent acquisition specialist, data protection executive, people advisor, senior auditor, marketing professionals as well as construction professionals.
David Conway, human resources director at Gatwick Airport, said, “We have been recruiting for a few months, and our push to find new people continues as we ramp up our operation ahead of the South Terminal reopening and, hopefully, a very busy summer period.
“This is an exciting time to come and help us connect family, friends and businesses, and is particularly good news for our local communities after the difficult years we have all just had. We’re offering a wide variety of exciting roles across all levels and many different departments at the airport.
“Gatwick is a fantastic, diverse and dynamic place to work, and we also offer a host of opportunities for career progression – just ask the many existing staff members who have been employed at Gatwick for several decades, working in numerous different roles.”
