Our recruitment process

Who and what we’re looking for

We are the fifth largest UK airport outside of London and the only top ten UK airports to see growth each year since 2009.

With extensive plans to grow further over the next 10 years, we are North Somerset’s largest single-site employer. Our airport is defined by our exceptional people, who have a passion for travel, a willingness to go the extra mile, and pride in operating our airport to the highest possible standards.

We are looking for people who share our goals. Answer the following questions to see if you are ready to start your amazing journey with Bristol Airport.

If you can answer yes to all three of the above you could have what it takes to join our team. 

Where we advertise our vacancies

All vacancies will be posted on our website so if you don’t see something that matches your skills or experience, please check back, as this site is regularly updated to reflect our latest job opportunities.

How to apply

We use an online recruitment portal; you will be required to answer questions related to the role on an online application form and to upload your CV.

The Process - what to expect

Our recruitment process is designed to work two ways. It allows us to assess your skills and qualities and also helps you decide whether we’re the right employer for you.

Once we've received your application, we'll review it and contact you via email to let you know if you have been successful, and give details of the next stage of the process.

If your application has been successful, depending on the role, you will either be invited in for a first stage interview or to attend an assessment centre.

First Stage Interview

This is an opportunity for you to come in for a face-to-face meeting with the hiring manager and a member of the People & Performance team to discuss your application for the role. This will often be followed up by a second stage interview which will generally involve meeting different managers from across the business, relevant to the role, and for some roles, a job-specific exercise and psychometric test.

Assessment Centre

Our assessment centres are designed to give us an idea of whether you have the skills, experience and qualities we’re looking for. We use a range of exercises on the day to allow us to assess your knowledge, skills, attitude and general fit within our organisation. Assessment centres are often followed up by a face to face interview to allow you the opportunity to discuss your application for the role in more detail.

If successful, along with your offer letter and contract of employment we will send you an offer pack with various forms such as personal information, medical forms relevant to your role and a reference pack. Due to the security restrictions of working at an airport, Bristol Airport requires references to cover a continuous 5 year period and a Criminal Records check. If you have any concerns about this, please contact us.
