Heathrow recruitment

Recruitment is the watchword as the UK’s largest airport continues to celebrate the lifting of the US travel ban.

While passenger numbers at the hub airport remain 56% down on pre-pandemic levels, the move to end the US travel ban has revived Heathrow (LHR), as the market accounts for 20% of the airport’s passenger traffic and 31% of the airport's cargo tonnage. LHR is kicking off a recruitment drive now to ensure that it is well equipped to handle a predicted rise in transit numbers ahead of next summer.

The new security and engineering jobs will be among the first frontline roles to have been created at LHR since the start of the pandemic.

The airport is recruiting for security officers, who will play a vital role in providing exceptional passenger service, while keeping a critical piece of the UK’s national infrastructure secure. LHR is also advertising a wide variety of engineering opportunities for colleagues to help keep the airport running smoothly as passenger demand returns.  

The new recruits will undergo an extensive training programme in order to achieve the required security accreditations. The successful candidates for these positions will receive a competitive salary and attractive benefits package.
