Bristol Airport is planning to hold a jobs fair this month with around 100 roles available, including positions with airline Jet2 and the government's Border Force. The South West transport hub will be teaming up with other employers across the site for the event, which is taking place on February 20.

The jobs on offer include customer service, hospitality, retail, airline handling and security positions. The fair will also provide information about seasonal roles, which Bristol Airport says are "ideal" for students or people looking for a "taster" of working there.

There are more than 50 employers operating from Bristol Airport, with number attending the jobs fair including security provider ICTS; travel catering specialist SSP; duty free shopping operator WDF; Escape and 1903 Lounges; Jet2; Europcar; Mego Employment; and Border Force.

The airport is hosting the fair as it gears up for its "busiest ever" summer season, with routes to 115 destinations in 2024. Earlier this month, Bristol Airport holidaymakers flew directly to the Caribbean on the first 'cruise flight'.

Debbie Hartshorn, people director at Bristol Airport said: "After a busy 2023, the teams at Bristol Airport are gearing up for our busiest ever summer season. In preparation, we will be hosting a jobs fair this month to showcase a wide range of employers, shift patterns and interesting roles to suit people with different skills and experiences.

“This is an exciting time to be working at Bristol Airport," she added. "Our business partners, airlines, and Bristol Airport have been able to create new jobs, building up our position as the area’s largest private sector employer.

“Our teams need a good blend of those starting out in their working career and those with more life experience. If you enjoy working as part of a team, are self-motivated and take pride in a job well done, then we could have the perfect opportunity for you. Working at Bristol Airport offers endless possibilities, and you will have a brilliant team behind you who will support you on your journey.”

The Jobs Fair will be held in Lulsgate House at Bristol Airport on Tuesday, February 20, between 11am and 1pm. Free parking will be available and subsidised travel on the Flyer buses from Weston-Super-Mare and Bristol City Centre.

Bristol Airport is currently undergoing a multi-million pound transformation, with work underway on a new £60m multi-storey car park and public transport hub. The airport is looking to expand its capacity from 10 million to 12 million passengers a year, which has been criticised by environmental campaigners.
