David Conway, Human Resources Director, Gatwick Airport said: “We have been recruiting for a number of months, and our push to find new people continues as we ramp up our operation ahead of the South Terminal reopening and, hopefully, a very busy summer period.

“This is an exciting time to come and help us connect family, friends and businesses, and is particularly good news for our local communities after the difficult years we have all just had.  We’re offering a wide variety of exciting roles across all levels and many different departments at the airport.
