Marcella M’Rabety, corporate social responsibility manager at Stansted, said: “It was an extremely busy day with almost 500 people coming from all parts of the region and London to see what opportunities there are at Stansted.
“The really good news is that 108 of those that attended have already secured interviews for jobs. The employers will be sorting through the rest of the applications over the coming weeks and we look forward to seeing some of the faces we met on the day at the airport in the future.”

We are already welcoming over 24m passengers a year, planning permission has been granted for a new £130m arrivals building and we are just about to kick-off a host of new multi-million pound projects to improve the passenger experience and make best use of our existing single runway.”
