Hundreds of ‘fantastic’ jobs up for grabs at Manchester Airport

HUNDREDS of jobs are available at Manchester Airport as the easing of travel restrictions sends consumer confidence skyrocketing.

Security, customer service, reception and parking staff are among the 550 vacancies at Manchester Airport Group.

An additional 1,000 jobs are available from other companies and airlines, including security guards, ground handlers, customer services, reception and parking staff.

Jet2.com, Ryanair, Swissport, UK Border Force, Menzies and ABM are looking to recruit as they prepare for a busy summer season.

A virtual job fair at 10 a.m. on Tuesday, January 25 will offer more details on many of these roles.

Passenger bookings have surged since travel restrictions imposed in response to the omicron variant were lifted last weekend.

Karen Smart, Managing Director of Manchester Airport, said: “It’s great that our passengers have more freedom to fly, as the aviation industry begins its recovery.

“We always knew the industry would rebound quickly as travel restrictions eased.

“We now have hundreds of fantastic and interesting roles available to suit a wide range of people with different experiences, skills and backgrounds.

“We encourage applications from people with great interpersonal skills, ambition and enthusiasm.

“Airports are great places to work, varied, interesting and with great potential. Our colleagues derive great satisfaction from their work by interacting with customers and helping them get their vacation off to a good start.

“It’s a great opportunity to develop your career and join our friendly team at dynamic and bustling Manchester Airport.”

As the airport is a 24/7 business, many roles include shifts and after hours to match operating and flight schedules.

A wide range of benefits are available to airport employees, including discounts on public transport, free on-site parking during work and holidays, a pension plan, training programs and discounts on retail trade.
