By David Prior at

Manchester Airport is to hold a jobs fair to showcase more than 1,000 jobs ahead of what it calls its “busiest ever summer”.

Recruiters including Swissport, Jet2.com and Boots will be at the event at Lancashire County Cricket Club’s The Point between 10am and 3pm on March 7th.

Roles on offer include lounge agents, drivers and security officers with Manchester Airport itself, as well as cabin crew, baggage handlers, customer service roles, apprenticeships, graduate schemes and managerial roles with a host of other employers.

The airport already employs 25,000 people directly on site with a further 45,000 jobs in the region.

Brad Miller, COO at Manchester Airport, said: “The airport is gearing up for another busy summer and that means there are hundreds of jobs being created, both directly with ourselves and with the many other organisations we work with on our campus.

“It is really pleasing to see that, as we grow, so do the benefits delivered to communities and the region as a whole.

“Our last few jobs fairs have proved hugely successful with thousands of people securing work across the site and we’re looking forward to another great event this year.”

Those wishing to attend can register for an hour’s time slot here.
