13 April 2012
Over 300 job seekers from across the region flocked to a job fair at London Stansted this week to see the array of employment opportunities on offer at the airport.
Organised by the Stansted Employment and Skills Academy, potential workers of the future packed Stansted’s Enterprise House on Thursday, April 12, keen to meet and speak to a wide range of airport companies. Firms attending included the Radisson Blu Hotel, Harrods Aviation, Starbucks, Wetherspoons, Monsoon, bus and coach operator - TGM, Aero Associates, Premier Inn, Dixons and JD Sports.
Anita Garrard, manager of the Stansted Employment and Skills Academy, said:
"It was an extremely busy day with a tremendous amount of people coming from all parts of the region and London to see what opportunities there are at Stansted. Job seekers were able to meet potential employers face to face, obtain careers advice and receive guidance about the application process for jobs at the airport."
Chris Wiggan, Stansted Airport’s Head of Public Affairs, said:
"Stansted Airport is the biggest single site employer in the East of England, employing over 10,000 people. The high turnout clearly demonstrates that the airport is an attractive and desirable location for people to work, either taking the first steps on the work ladder or looking for a new career direction."
