Manchesterís jobs boom

Another sign of the economic importance of airports has come from Manchester, where significant growth over the past year at the self-styled “global gateway for the North” has created an employment boom. 

The airport says it has more than 2,500 jobs available and is holding a jobs fair on 13 January to start the recruitment process. 

It is already one of the largest centres of employment in the north-west, with more than 21,500 people directly employed on site, supporting a further 45,000 jobs in the region. 

Managing director, Ken O’Toole, said: “More than 70 airlines now offer direct flights from Manchester to over 210 destinations worldwide. This ongoing successful performance has created a huge number of new roles across the whole site.” 

As well as the airport, more than two dozen employers will be at the fair, including the World Duty Free Group, the Nuance Group, WH Smith, Menzies Aviation, Holiday Inn Express, Jet2.com and Jet2Holidays.

Jobs on offer range from airport security, check-in and baggage handlers to cabin crew, aircraft dispatchers, engineering and customer service.

Airport recruitment staff, supported by the Airport Academy, will also be on hand to help with applications and give CV master-classes.  www.manchesterairport.co.uk
