Gatwick seeking 1,200 staff

More than 1,200 extra staff are being sought by Gatwick over the next few weeks as the airport prepares for what is predicted to be its busiest summer to date. More than two-thirds of the vacancies are in the shops and restaurants.

As part of the campaign, the airport was in attendance alongside 30 other employers based at Gatwick at the East Surrey College Job Fair last week to showcase the roles on offer to local people.

As well as 800-plus vacancies at the likes of WHSmith, Wetherspoon, Boots, Fat Face, Starbucks and Monsoon, officials are seeking more than 400 check-in assistants and baggage handlers to work for firms including DHL, Menzies, Airline Services, dnata and Swissport.

Head of retail Rachel Bulford said: “It's great to see so many job opportunities opening up again throughout our retail and restaurant offering at the airport. These roles will help to ensure we provide excellent service as passenger numbers increase for the summer.

"A large proportion of our staff are based in the surrounding counties, making Gatwick one of the largest economic drivers for the southeast region."
