Belfast International Airport says it hopes to fill more than 100 full-time, part-time and seasonal roles when it holds a jobs fair at the Gasworks Hotel in Belfast on Saturday March 23.

Positions on offer include aviation security agents, ground handling staff, hospitality team members and drivers.

Staff from companies based across the airport site will be on hand to guide attendees through the application process as well discuss salaries and company benefits.

The recruitment campaign will feed into long-term investment plans currently under way by the airport’s French owners Vinci, with a new security terminal due to be operational by this summer.

There are also plans to revamp existing facilities, improve the airside departure area with additional departure gates as well as a range of new catering options and retail outlets.

But it comes at a time when the airport is operating without a permanent managing director after Graham Keddie stepped down last week after nearly 10 years in charge.

The airport welcomed nearly 6 million passengers in 2023 and is preparing for a busy summer season with increased connectivity for passengers to more than 70 UK and European destinations.

Jaclyn Coulter, human resources manager at the airport, says: “We want to further grow our team with a number of different roles.

“The airport offers an exciting work environment with lots of career progression opportunities available within the travel and aviation sector.”

Saturday’s jobs fair at the Gasworks (formerly Radisson Blu) runs from 11am to 2pm, with more information at
