350 jobs up for grabs at East Midlands Airport

East Midlands Airport (EMA) and neighbouring businesses are recruiting to fill over 350 vacancies for a range of roles in the coming weeks.

The airport is looking for additional staff to fill vital roles needed for its busy summer season which runs from 1 April to 31 October, during which time two-thirds of annual passengers fly to and from EMA. These include customer-facing jobs in passenger services, security, car parking, hospitality, retail and food and beverage

Jet2.com and Swissport are looking for ground handling staff to fill check-in and baggage handling roles while logistics giants DHL and UPS are also recruiting. Jury’s Inn hotel, located on the Pegasus Business Park next to the airport is also adding to its team.

Jobseekers keen to find out more about all the vacancies on offer can do so at the annual jobs fair on Saturday 26th January, 10am-2 pm, which takes place in the airport’s check-in hall.

Chris Hayton, head of external affairs, said: “With 8,000 people working across the wider airport site within multiple businesses, this a great place to expand skills and develop careers, either with us or with one of our partner businesses. This corner of North-West Leicestershire is one of the fastest growing employment sites in the region, and with that will come even more opportunities in the future. This is an exciting time to be working at the airport and with our neighbouring businesses.”
