Stansted Airport has officially relaunched its dedicated employment academy after bringing it back ‘in-house’.
The Stansted Airport Employment and Skills Academy, based at Enterprise House next to the main terminal, is a one stop shop for finding out about on-site vacancies.
The service, which will operate as part of Manchester Airports Group in partnership with Harlow College, also offers tailored aviation training programmes and apprenticeship schemes to help jobseekers to secure a job with one of more than 200 on-site employers.
Guests at the launch included Robert Halfon MP, on-site business partners, Harlow College, Job Centre Plus and current apprentices. Employment and skills manager Vesela Ivanova said: “Stansted Airport is the biggest single-site employer in the region offering the chance to work in sought-after industries.”
