Bronwen, Development Director at London Gatwick

I joined Gatwick on a graduate programme. Since then, I've worked in lots of different areas, including Security, Operations and Construction.

I now lead the airport’s multi-million-pound Capital Investment programme. Working at an airport, you're challenged to be ambitious and redefine what's possible.

I joined Gatwick as a graduate in 2018 and am working towards becoming a chartered engineer. I've had plenty of support to deliver what matters.

There are plenty of opportunities to grow your career in other areas. For me, that's working on projects out on the airfield building in a live environment.

Andy, Senior Digital Performance Manager

The airport is a dynamic place to work, and you're always challenged to give your best. It has a real buzz you can't find elsewhere.
