East Midlands Airport to host virtual jobs fair
As part of its drive to recruit 175 customer-facing roles within its security, car parks and passenger services teams, East Midlands Airport (EMA) is holding a virtual jobs fair on Tuesday 1 February, 10am – 1pm.
Three million passengers are predicted to use the airport this year as consumer confidence builds following a relaxation of travel restrictions.
Filling vacant security officer roles is the airport’s immediate priority as new starters need to undergo compliance training, while other vacancies will be advertised in the coming weeks.
Customer-facing roles such as those being currently recruited to are critical not only to ensuring safety and compliance but also for making people’s experience of travel a positive one. These roles are ‘front-of-house’ and are ideal for those who enjoy interacting with customers and working as part of a team. The hours offered are also ideal for job seekers looking for a positive work-life balance from a shift pattern.
The virtual jobs fair will allow people to find out more about what it’s like to work at EMA. Airport colleagues will be joined by representatives of other organisations based across the airport site who are also recruiting.
As well as joining a friendly and supportive team, airport employees enjoy many benefits including:
- free on-site parking while on duty
- retail discounts and savings
- 24-hour employee assistance programme
- MAG pension scheme which doubles your contribution
- discounts on some bus services
- discounts on MAG products such as Escape Lounges and holiday parking at airports
- career growth opportunities
Dave Gale, Airport Academy Coordinator, said: “The virtual jobs fair is a great opportunity to ask questions about the roles we’re recruiting to, and to find out what it’s like to be part of the team here. I would encourage anyone who likes the buzz of fast-paced, customer-focused working environment to check us out. Having done 44 years of service at EMA myself, I’ve had one of the most rewarding careers imaginable. I’ve loved every minute of my time here and I would thoroughly recommend working at the airport to anyone who is looking for a fulfilling a rewarding role.”
