A recruitment day will be held at Liverpool Airport later this month as a number of companies look to fill 200 roles ahead of the busy summer season. Tony McDonough reports
Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) is to hold a recruitment day with 200 jobs on offer.
A number of companies based at the airport are looking to fill roles ahead of what is expected to be the busiest summer season since 2019. The pandemic has seen a significant fall in the number of flights but a big recovery is expected in 2022.
On Tuesday, January 18, LJLA will host a recruitment day. Companies looking for more staff include handling agent Swissport, aviation security company Wilson James, catering company SSP, passenger assistance company ABM and retailers such as Boots and duty free shop operator Dufry.
It will be held in the airport terminal building from 10am until 4pm. Anyone interested in a career at the airport can come along and talk to representatives from each of the companies looking to recruit staff. Some employers will carry out interviews on the day and appointments are not required in advance.
A diverse range of job opportunities are currently available at the airport including aviation security officers, handling agent passenger services roles, baggage handling, passenger assistance for people with disabilities, catering and related front of house roles, bar work and retail work.
Carol Dutton, LJLA’s HR and community director, said: “This event is a great opportunity for anyone considering a career at the airport to find out about a host of positions currently available across a diverse range of employers.
“We look forward to having lots of applicants attend, with many hopefully starting work here in the coming weeks to help welcome passengers flying in and out of the airport as we continue on our road to recovery with a busier summer ahead than in the previous past two years.”
For those wishing to use public transport to travel to the event, a number of bus services call at the airport, while nearby Liverpool South Parkway provides a link to the region’s rail network. Complimentary parking will also be available for those travelling by car.
