London City Airport is the largest private sector employer in the London Borough of Newham. The airport needs to employ excellent staff to ensure our business thrives and to exceed the expectations of our passengers.
In 2016, 55 employers based on-site employed over 2000 people. 64% of our staff is living in an East London Borough. This benefits our business because our staff is flexible and share their knowledge of the local area with our passengers.
To encourage local residents to apply for vacancies at the airport, we actively engage with local jobseekers, recruitment organisations, schools, colleges, universities and other supporting organisations in East London. We work with individuals and groups in a variety of activities, from attending local careers fairs to organising intensive workshops.
