A JOB fair will be held at Stansted Airport next Thursday (May 30).

It is being hosted by the Stansted Employment and Skills Academy at the airport’s Enterprise House from 10am-3pm.

The fair is open to everyone and will offer information on the types of vacancies at the airport – with over 150 full-time and part-time positions up for grabs.

Companies attending include Swissport, McDonalds, Dixons, Starbucks, JD Wetherspoon and Pontis.

Anita Garrard, manager of the Stansted Employment and Skills Academy, said: “Stansted Airport is the biggest single site employer in the East of England, with over 10,000 people working for 200 on-airport companies.

“The fair will enable job seekers to meet with potential employers face to face, obtain careers advice and receive guidance about the application process for jobs at the airport.

“The airport is a wonderful place to work and has many opportunities for people looking for a rewarding career.”
