Companies based at Liverpool John Lennon Airport (LJLA) will once again be looking to fill a host of vacancies at an Airport Recruitment Day, to be held on Thursday 11th January, ahead of what is expected to be the airport’s busiest Summer season for 5 years and which starts in just under three months’ time.
The arrival of Jet2.com and Jet2Holidays from late March 2024, with their flights operating to 20 sunshine destinations and bringing an expected additional 500,000 passengers through the airport, means the airport is planning ahead for its busiest summer since the Covid pandemic.
The aim of the event is to once again ensure that staffing levels across the business are in place in time for the busy Summer season, helping the Airport continue to provide the great passenger experience it has become renowned for in recent years and which helped it become the UK’s Best Airport in the 2023 Which? Airport Survey.
The recruitment day has now become an annual event which the airport organises on behalf of various employers who are all looking to recruit in 2024, with hundreds of job seekers once again expected to attend.
This year’s recruitment drive is taking place on Thursday 11th January from 10am until 4pm in the terminal building, with a host of employers on hand who are based at the Airport all looking to fill 192 mainly full time vacancies.
These include airline Jet2.com, aviation security company Wilson James, catering company SSP, passenger assistance company ABM and retailers such as Boots and duty free shop operator Dufry.
The event is a great opportunity for anyone interested in a career at the Airport to come along and find out what jobs are currently available and talk to representatives from each of the companies looking to recruit employees, with no appointments required in advance.
A diverse range of job opportunities are currently available at the airport including aircraft dispatch, airline sales desk, aviation security officers, passenger assistance for people with disabilities, catering and related front of house roles, bar work and retail work.
Carol Dutton, Liverpool John Lennon Airport’s HR & Community Director commented, “With a busy summer season ahead and employers here at the airport wanting to ensure our passengers continue to have the best possible airport experience, it’s important to once again make sure that the many vacancies on offer here at the airport are filled in time for the Summer.
We’ll therefore be delighted to welcome along prospective employees who may be considering a career at the airport, to our latest Recruitment Day next Thursday where they will be able to find out about a host of positions currently available across a diverse range of employers, with many hopefully going on to start work here in the coming weeks.”
For those wishing to use public transport to travel to the event, a number of bus services call at the airport, whilst nearby Liverpool South Parkway provides a link to the region’s rail network for anyone travelling here from further afield. Complimentary parking will also be available for those traveling by car.
