Job Fair At Stansted

28 May 2013

The Stansted Employment and Skills Academy is holding a job fair at the airport’s Enterprise House from 10am to 3pm on Thursday, May 30.

The fair is open to everyone and will offer information on the many types of vacancies at the airport. Companies attending include Swissport, McDonalds, Dixons, Starbucks, JD Wetherspoon and Pontis offering over 150 full time and part time positions.

Anita Garrard, manager of the Stansted Employment and Skills Academy, said:

"Stansted Airport is the biggest single site employer in the East of England, with over 10,000 people working for 200 on-airport companies. The fair will enable job seekers to meet with potential employers face to face, obtain careers advice and receive guidance about the application process for jobs at the airport. The airport is a wonderful place to work and has many opportunities for people looking for a rewarding career."

One of the many benefits of working at Stansted Airport is the wide range of public transport discounts available to staff. The Airport Travel Card offers an attractive option for staff to use public transport, offering significant savings on standard rail, bus and coach fares. The airport also operates a very successful staff car share scheme, which is one of the largest of its kind in Europe.

In 2013, Stansted Airport donated £30,000 to the Stansted Employment and Skills Academy. The funding helps to build on the existing work of the Academy and to develop a wider range of services and outreach activities. This is part of a long term commitment by the airport to support local employment and training opportunities. The Academy hosted three job fairs in 2012 helping fill 485 vacancies across the airport.
