LONDON: As part of Jet2’s expansion of operations at East Midlands Airport, it announced further investment and job creation at the base.
“We have taken all ramp-handling services in-house, meaning that 100 new fixed term and permanent jobs are now available to fill for Ramp Agent, Baggage Loader and Dispatch positions for Summer 2017. Working as part of the Ground Operations Team, successful candidates will be responsible for ensuring that flights depart safely and on time, whilst providing a VIP service to all of our customers,” the low-cost airline said in a statement on its website.
It comes on the back of a successful recruitment drive last year when it filled 80 positions to support growth.
Steve Heapy, CEO of Jet2.com and Jet2holidays said: “We have continued to grow since starting operations from East Midlands Airport in 2009, with this summer representing our biggest ever flights and holidays programme. To support this and to provide Jet2.com and Jet2holidays customers with the best possible experience, we are investing significantly into our operation ahead of the summer season. This will enable us to build on our award-winning service and deliver an even better end-to-end customer experience for our customers at East Midlands Airport.”
