The Jobs, Apprenticeships and Opportunities Fair was a fantastic opportunity for the airport’s on-site Employment & Skills Academy to engage with job seekers and organisations in Hertfordshire. As our neighbouring county with great links to the airport, we were pleased to have the chance to showcase employment and training opportunities at Stansted in another key area.
The team attended on behalf of the whole airport and all on-site businesses that are currently hiring, so we were able to share with attendees over 200 live vacancies across the aviation, logistics, hospitality and retail and transport sectors and we successfully signposted a number of people to where they can apply for these roles. We also met with representatives from Hertford County Council and other organisations, with whom we will share more information for them to distribute amongst their networks. The event was also a really useful way for us to network with potential referral partners.
As well as career opportunities, we were also promoting the Academy’s pre-employment training course, Exploring the Aviation Industry. It was great to catch up with Employment Advisors from Hertford Jobcentre Plus who we already work very closely with and as a result we received an additional four referrals to our final course for 2022. We will be visiting them on-site in early January to continue supporting jobseekers in Hertford find employment at Stansted. Anyone enrolled on our course is eligible for a one-month free travelcard, and anyone employed at the airport can receive up to 80% off travel on public transport.
Please email email@example.com for any queries or information about our training course, or if you would like to be added to our distribution list to receive the weekly vacancy list.
