Job-seekers across the region are being invited to attend a special event, on 7th March 2019, at Lancashire County Cricket Club’s The Point complex from 10am to 3pm, to learn more about the positions.

Roles on offer include lounge agents, drivers and security officers. Full training programmes will be offered to successful applicants.

Manchester Airport is already one of the largest centres of employment in the North West with more than 25,000 people directly employed on site, supporting a further 45,000 jobs in the region.

As well as roles with Manchester Airport, other employers recruiting at the event include Swissport, Jet2.com, Boots, Dnata and the Clayton Hotel. There will be a huge variety of jobs available with on-site partners including cabin crew, baggage handlers and customer service roles.  There are also apprenticeships, graduate schemes and managerial roles.

Brad Miller, COO at Manchester Airport, said: “The airport is gearing up for another busy summer and that means there are hundreds of jobs being created, both directly with ourselves and with the many other organisations we work with on our campus.

“It is really pleasing to see that, as we grow, so do the benefits delivered to communities and the region as a whole.

“Our last few jobs fairs have proved hugely successful with thousands of people securing work across the site and we’re looking forward to another great event this year.”

Last year was another record one for the airport that saw more than 28 million people pass through its three terminals. With new long-haul routes added to Mumbai with Jet Airways, Seattle with Thomas Cook Airlines and Addis Ababa with Ethiopian Airlines, it has helped to grow passenger numbers and create additional jobs.  It comes as work on the airport’s £1 billion transformation continues at pace with first parts set to open to passengers in April. There are now more than 1,300 people employed on the project itself.
