Apply for a job

Selecting and recruiting the right people is important to our continued success and to achieve our ambition of becoming London's airport of choice. 

So, yes we're looking for technical expertise and qualifications when they're required. But we also look for people who share our values. Good team players. Results-driven individuals who focus on the customer. Colleagues who are open and honest and always committed to doing the right thing.

Our recruitment process

Our recruitment process is designed to work two ways. It allows us to assess your skills and qualities and also helps you decide whether we’re the right employer for you.

Once we've received your application, we'll review it and contact you via email, usually within 3-4 weeks, to let you know if you have been successful, and give details of the next stage of the process. 

This may either be a face-to-face competency based interview or telephone interview, where we’ll ask you about your previous experience. We will also send you a document pack containing forms and guidelines on various matters including your eligibility to work in the UK.

These must be completed and brought to the second stage selection event, which may take the form of:

  • Assessment centre 
  • Psychometric testing
  • Competency based interview 

If following this stage you are offered employment with Gatwick, we will ask for the following details before issuing your contract:

  • Your eligibility to work in the UK documents
  • Your five-year reference history
  • Completed security check form

If you didn’t find a suitable vacancy on this visit, please register for our job alert service and we’ll notify you of all new vacancies as and when they are available.

You can also check out vacancies with our retailers and restaurants and other airport partners.
