As the UK’s largest single site employer, we’re not just important to the national economy; we’re at the heart of the local community too. Almost half of our people live locally.
We encourage companies operating here to recruit local people and help them gain valuable qualifications.
Working with local schools we raise awareness about airport careers. Our presence on plotr brings the range of opportunities we offer to life, whilst our work experience programmes give students first-hand knowledge of the airport environment.
We’re also a Duke of Edinburgh Award Diamond Partner. We encourage our colleagues to complete their own award and gain valuable skills, as well as supporting the charity to give young people from all walks of life a chance to shine.
