Newcastle Airport is on the lookout for hundreds of new staff as a dormant holiday period look set to come to an end.
Trips abroad have been at a premium since the pandemic began but with cases falling and Plan B restrictions being removed, it's looking up for the aviation industry.
Newcastle Airport is whirring back into action with a huge recruitment push.
The Airport hosted an aviation-based career fair at St. James' Park earlier this month.
The fair saw the Airport and some of its largest business partners advertise over 500 job vacancies across the field.
The event was organised in conjunction with the Newcastle United Foundation and the SAFC Foundation of Light.
It has been described as a 'huge success' but vacancies still remain.
From Security Officers to Passenger Services Assistants and Car Park Operatives, all of which include a bonus of £250 on completion of 20 weeks of continuous service, plenty of roles are still advertised on the Airport's website.
Candidates can also apply for vacancies with the Airport’s business partners - including Customer Service Representatives with Jet2.com, Aircraft Dispatchers with Swissport, Kitchen Assistants and Team Leaders with SSP, Warehouse Operatives and HGV Drivers with dnata or Sales Assistants with Greggs and Travelex.
Nick Jones, Chief Executive of Newcastle International Airport said: “We have some fantastic opportunities available at the Airport and the Careers Fair saw hundreds of potential candidates attend to find out more from our Airport teams and business partners.
“There are still some vacancies available and I would encourage anyone who was interested in a role but couldn’t attend on the day to consider applying.
“The Newcastle International Airport website contains all the information you need on the vacancies and how to apply.
"It’s a very exciting time for the business as we prepare for a busy summer season and we are very much looking forward to welcoming our new team members!”
