AIRPORT BOOST: Promising signs for Birmingham airport as hiring ramps up
Promising signs for Birmingham airport as hiring ramps up as the travel industry prepares for take-off once again.
Specialist aviation recruitment expert, Staffing Match, has reported a spike in demand for baggage handlers, ramp agents and check-in staff across major UK airports including Birmingham as the travel industry prepares for take-off once again.
While the official green light hasn’t yet been given by the Government, the aviation recruitment specialist has already seen larger airlines ramping up hiring across major UK airports including Heathrow, Stansted, Birmingham and Manchester.
Business Director of Staffing Match, Dan Carlin, said, “While it’s certainly encouraging to see confidence returning for the UK’s aviation industry after what has been an incredibly tough year, the challenge now is getting enough staff on-board and re-trained in a short time frame. Airports and airlines can’t simply flick a switch and return to pre-pandemic levels of flights, so the fact that we are currently seeing recruitment of front-of-house staff ramp up is a promising sign. We will, of course, have to wait and see what happens closure to the Government’s May deadline, but signs are certainly looking promising at the moment.”
