Dave Gale, East Midlands Airport’s Academy Coordinator, says: “There is no substitute for job seekers meeting with employers in person. There are currently many vacancies across the whole of the business whether it’s working in thick of the operation out on the airfield, supporting customers through security or preparing and serving food and drink. We’re appealing to jobseekers whether they are people in work and looking for a change, or those out of work hoping to kick-start their career this year.”
