Take off Into Work

Take off Into Work (TOIW) is the airport’s successful local employment scheme which provides Newham residents over the age of 18 with a variety of training, work experience and access to job opportunities.

TThe programme is run in partnership by LCY and Newham Workplace. The programme consists of a twoweek airport specific training followed by a work placement of up to nine weeks and possibly a job interview with one of the employers at the Airport.

Since September 2009, over 600 Newham residents have managed to secure a job at the airport or one of its concessions. The range of jobs that candidates were recruited into included Security, Ramp Services, Customer Service, Airline Passenger Handling Agents and Retail.
