Manchester Airports Group announces 1,000 job opportunities

Manchester Airports Group (MAG) has announced more than 1,000 jobs are available at its Manchester, Stansted and East Midlands airports, as it expects a revivial in air travel following the the easing of travel testing restrictions last week.

Jobs being advertised range from security officers, customer service officers and car park staff to hospitality workers.

At Manchester and Stansted, there are more than 500 security roles available, while there are up to 95 security positions at East Midlands.

The three airports in the UK’s largest group of airports reported a “strong” recovery in October and November last year, which slowed when restrictions tightened in response to the Omicron variant.

MAG says the removal of the extra testing measures has given the sector a boost, and reported increased flight bookings from the airports.

Cath Bailey, MAG’s chief people officer, said: “It’s great that our passengers have more freedom to fly, as the aviation industry resumes on its road to recovery.

“We always knew the sector would quickly bounce back with the easing of travel restrictions. This means we now have hundreds of fantastic, interesting roles available to suit a wide range of people with different experience, skills and backgrounds.”

Pre-pandemic, the three MAG airports flew more than 60 million passengers to more than 285 destinations per annum.
