Stansted Airport looking to recruit at least 300 new workers plus vacancies at Ryanair, Jet2.com, Swissport, Menzies, HMSHost, Boots and Pret a Manger among others
Stansted Airport is generating more than 300 jobs as it gears up for 2022.
Most of the vacancies are for security officers, but there are also opportunities in engineering, customer service and car parking teams as Manchester Airports Group's Uttlesford base looks forward to the summer season launching at the end of March.
Stansted managing director Steve Griffiths said: "Last week's announcement by the Government was great news for the airport, the travel industry and our passengers, who will now be able to enjoy more freedom to fly without the extra complexity and costs of testing.
"As the aviation industry once again begins its road to a full recovery, we now have hundreds of fantastic and interesting roles available to suit a wide range of people with different experience, skills and backgrounds.
"We encourage applications from individuals with great people skills, ambition and enthusiasm to come and join our friendly team at London Stansted. Our colleagues get huge job satisfaction from interacting with customers and helping to give them a great start to their holidays.
"Airports are great and varied places to work and offer excellent potential to develop and grow careers. In fact, many of our current leaders have taken advantage of the numerous opportunities available to progress their careers from within the airport."
October 2021 was the airport's busiest month since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. The 1.3 million passengers was up 235% on October 2020, and although the Omicron variant dented consumer confidence for a few weeks, bookings are rising again following the Government's decision this month to relax testing restrictions for fully-vaccinated travellers.
