100 jobs on offer as East Midlands Airport launches major recruitment drive – Nottinghamshire Live

A variety of different roles are being advertised
East Midlands Airport (EMA) has launched one of its largest ever recruitment drives ahead of what is expected to be the busiest year for passenger travel since 2019. The airport has more than 100 vacancies in key areas – including security, customer services, assisted travel and car parking.
As the airport continues to build back after the pandemic, even more passengers are expected this year compared with 2022. The peak season for passenger travel is from Easter through to the October half-term holiday, when two-thirds of EMA's total number of passengers use the airport.
Michael Grimes, EMA's customer services and security director, said: "This is an exciting time to join the team at EMA. There's a real buzz around the place as we look forward to welcoming back passengers this year, many of whom still won't have travelled overseas since before the pandemic.

"Being a smaller regional airport, we pride ourselves on the quality of our personable and friendly approach to customer service, and we aim to give everyone who uses EMA the best possible start to their holiday or trip. We are looking for new recruits who enjoy interacting with customers, putting a smile on people's faces and the energy of a 24-hour operation.
"Airports are exciting places to work, and I urge anyone looking for a new job this year to check us out. In return, we offer competitive pay, flexible hours to suit lifestyles and a friendly and supportive working atmosphere."
As part of its recruitment drive, the airport is holding a jobs fair on February 4. This will be in the check-in hall between 10am and 2pm.
As well as promoting its own vacancies, airlines and providers of aviation services will also be attending, including DHL, Jet2.com, Swissport, Boots, TRG, HMS Host, World Duty Free, Greggs, Travelex, DNATA and Groundlink. Free parking is available for the event and anyone wanting to attend can register at www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/east-midlands-airport-jobs-fair-tickets-482432648037
A spokesperson for EMA said: "This year's forecasts suggest that passenger numbers will not be far off where they were during the summer seasons prior to the pandemic. The winter months before Easter are critical to recruiting the roles needed to ensure that customers have the smoothest experience at the airport.
"The current focus is on attracting applicants to the security and customer service teams. These roles require training which needs to be completed before passenger numbers start to increase.
"The airport will also be recruiting to its car parking teams while partner organisations that provide baggage handling and those that operate retail and food and beverage outlets will also be advertising vacancies."
