Careers fair kick of year of growth at Bristol Airport
Created: 21st Dec 2015
Following the success of similar events last year, Bristol Airport will be hosting a series of Careers Fairs in the New Year to showcase the range of job opportunities on offer.
The Airport will be teaming up with business partners based across its site at the three events in January and February, giving prospective candidates the chance to find out more about the different roles available and the skills and qualifications required.
Around 3,000 people are employed at the Airport, which is expected to handle 6.7 million passengers in 2015. But, with permission to develop facilities to handle up to 10 million passengers per annum in future, the workforce is forecast to grow.
The Careers Fairs will provide a ‘one stop shop’ for anyone interested in working at the Airport, with several of the 45 different employers on site represented, including security provider, ICTS, travel catering specialist, SSP, and duty free shopping operator, WDF.
Roles on offer span customer service, PCV drivers, security, catering and retail, including fixed term seasonal contracts commencing April until the end of October 2016.
The standard of recruits from last year’s Careers Fairs was very high, including ten additions to the Airport’s Customer Service and Ground Transportation Departments.
The Careers Fairs will be held in the Administration Building at Bristol Airport on the following dates:
- Friday 8 January, from 18.00 until 20.00
- Friday 22 January, from 16.00 until 18.00
- Saturday 6 February, from 1000 until 1200
