Over 80 security and car parking jobs available at East Midlands Airport


East Midlands Airport (EMA) has launched a recruitment drive for over 80 permanent security and car parking staff.


The first round of interviews is on Thursday 12 December, with more to follow. Once candidates have been selected, training will start from January. 

Each year, the airport increases its head count for the busy summer season (1 April - 31 October) but the vacancies that are being recruited for now are permanent and successful candidates will be employed all year round.

EMA employs over 650 people in a wide-range of jobs, from back office administrative functions to frontline operational roles. Almost 5 million passengers fly through EMA each year and, with it being home to the UK’s largest dedicated air cargo operation, the airport is open 24 hours-a-day, 365 days-a-year. Security and car park colleagues work on shifts around the clock every day of the year and play a vital role in ensuring people and goods get to and from their destinations smoothly.

Applicants need not have any previous experience of working in security or car parking roles but do need to demonstrate excellent customer service skills. A full Level 1 aviation security qualification will be provided.

Felicia Farrimond, Senior Recruitment & Vetting Co-ordinator (Security), says: “As an international gateway and one of the region’s most high-profile businesses, East Midlands Airport is a fascinating place to work. As the face of the airport, security and car park teams play a key role in ensuring all customers’ experience of using the airport is a positive one. With so much growth happening across the airport site and nearby, this is an exciting time to be working at EMA.”
