Published on : Friday, March 3, 2017

Gatwick AirportGatwick Airport announces today vacancies for more than 1,000 seasonal summer jobs, further demonstrating the airport’s commitment to boosting employment in the local community.

 

The announcement marks a 40% uplift in seasonal summer jobs at the airport compared to last year, reflecting Gatwick’s continued growth as it gets ready to face its busiest summer on record.

 

The jobs are being offered from across the airport’s retail and restaurant portfolio with Accessorize, WH Smith, JD Wetherspoon, Boots, World Duty Free and Dixon’s among the outlets offering opportunities.

 

A recent Oxford Economics report, commissioned by the Gatwick Growth Board, led by former London and Transport Ministers Tessa Jowell and Steve Norris, also underlined Gatwick’s role in the local and regional economy.

 

The report shows that the airport’s GDP impact in the Gatwick Diamond, the geographical area between the airport, London and Brighton, has risen to £2.3bn and 36,000 jobs, meaning 10% of the Diamond’s economy can be traced back to the airport, which is estimated to support one in every twelve jobs in the region.

 

Additionally the footprint at a national level amounts to £5.3bn in GDP and over 85,000 jobs.

 

Rachel Bulford, Head of Retail at Gatwick, said:

“It’s great to see so many job opportunities opening up throughout our retail and restaurant offering at the airport. These roles will help to ensure we provide excellent service in all our outlets as passenger numbers increase over the busy summer period.”“A large proportion of our staff are based in the surrounding counties, making us one of the largest economic drivers for the South East region.”
