London Airports Aim To Boost Business Aviation Workforce
Seeking to expand the business aviation workforce, the UK’s Farnborough Airport will stage a careers day event on January 23. In addition to the management team of the London-area private airport, the event will feature some of its major tenants, including Flexjet, Air Charter Service, and Gulfstream. The latter company has a major maintenance, repair, and overhaul facility at the site. The British Business & General Aviation Association is supporting the careers day, which will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the on-site Aviator Hotel. The group’s managing director, Lindsey Oliver, is due to speak at the event to prospective recruits, including “candidates who are looking to start a career in the industry or experienced hires who are looking for their next role.” More information is available from the Farnborough Airport recruitment team at recruitment @ farnboroughairport.com. The airport—which seeks to fill vacancies in areas such as customer service, operations, and ground handling—has more than 50 companies on-site that collectively employ around 1,200 people. On the other side of the UK capital, London Biggin Hill Airport is holding a Careers Open Day on February 16 from 1 to 3 p.m.
