In addition to Manchester Airport seeking staff, those advertising positions at the event will be Jet2, Swissport and the Clayton Hotel. Expected to be among the range of part-time and full-time roles on offer are vacancies for Cabin Crew, Security Officers and Baggage Handlers. Other positions in a range of fields, from Customer Service to Engineering, will also be available.
 
The Jobs Fair will also give prospective apprentices and graduates a chance to discuss the opportunities available to them, with programmes on offer at the airport’s in-house academy and through its graduate placement scheme.
 
Brad Miller, Chief Operating Officer at Manchester Airport, said: “Our previous jobs fairs have proven to be a very effective way of highlighting the opportunities available at the airport and finding talented people to fill those vacancies, so we’re pleased to be holding this event for a fifth consecutive year.
 
“The number and variety of positions advertised at this year’s event clearly demonstrates that the airport’s growth is providing a catalyst for job creation, and we are determined that our neighbouring communities will see the full benefit of that.
 
“More than 12,000 people from Greater Manchester and 3,000 from Cheshire are already employed at the airport and we hope to see that figure continuing to rise as our transformation project moves forward.”
 
Manchester Airport is already one of the largest centres of employment in the North, with around 25,000 people directly employed on site, supporting a further 45,000 jobs in the region.
 
This summer will see the latest phase of its £1 billion transformation programme become a reality when a major extension to Terminal Two opens, increasing the size of the terminal by 150% and creating 32 new shops, bars and restaurants.
 

Those planning to attend the event are asked to visit
