More than 1,000 jobs are available at MAG – the UK’s largest group of airports – as the easing of travel restrictions sparked a renewed revival of air travel.
There are jobs across all three of MAG’s airports – Manchester, London Stansted and East Midlands - and they range from security officers, customer service officers and car park staff to hospitality and lounge workers. At both Manchester and London Stansted Airports, there are more than 500 security roles alone, with up to 95 security positions at East Midlands Airport also.
Thousands of further jobs are also available at companies operating at the three airports, including ground handlers, cleaning companies, shops and restaurants.
All three MAG airports were experiencing a strong recovery during October and November. While that slowed slightly when restrictions were brought in in response to the omicron variant, these controls were last week removed.
That has delivered a boost to the sector, with consumer confidence rising and bookings surging in the days following the announcement.
The news has paved the way for the travel industry to recover strongly this year, especially ahead of the busy summer season.
Cath Bailey, MAG’s Chief People Officer, said:
“It’s great that our passengers have more freedom to fly, as the aviation industry resumes on its road to recovery. We always knew the sector would quickly bounce back with the easing of travel restrictions, which were relaxed this weekend.
“This means we now have hundreds of fantastic, 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.
“Airports are a great, varied placed to work that are interesting and offer excellent potential. Our colleagues get huge job satisfaction from interacting with customers and helping to give them a great start to their holidays.
“This is a great opportunity to grow your career and join our friendly team at one of MAG’s busy, vibrant airports.”
A series of virtual jobs fairs will also take place to promote the jobs available at each of MAG’s airports. Information on these can be found on the links below.
MAG is the UK’s largest group of airports owning and operating London Stansted, East Midlands and Manchester airports. Pre-pandemic the group flew more than 60 million passengers to more than 285 destinations.
Those securing roles can also take advantage of a wide range of benefits. These include discounts on public transport when travelling to work (80% off at London Stansted Airport), free on-site car parking whilst working and when going on holiday, excellent pension scheme, training programmes, retail discounts plus many more.
