Amanda - Human Resources
"My biggest career influence was a “mad professor” character who taught me that if you believe in yourself and put your mind to something, you can do it!
"His mantra has seen me right through my career in Human Resources. I’ve worked in the aviation industry for years across a number of different sectors - starting with what used to be GB Airways, then on to Swissport and after that at Menzies Aviation. One of the many benefits of HR is that you have skills which can be transferred between different companies.
"I’ve only worked at Gatwick since June but I’m really excited to be here and have been warmly welcomed into my role. Everyone has been very welcoming - the community aspect is something that I'm really enjoying! I'm the HR business partner for security but I also interact with a number of different departments across the airport. I'm looking forward to help them achieve their goals.

"My new job is just one of several adventures I’ll be enjoying over the next few years, as I’m getting married next year. My partner and I actually went to school together, and then met again about eight years ago, decided to give it a go and now here we are!"
When Amanda’s not busy at Gatwick or planning her wedding, you’ll probably find her practising yoga to wind down or spending time with her family. Her ambition and drive make her a perfect addition to the Gatwick family.
