UK’s first job fair for the entire aviation industry announced


International job site, Aviation Job Search have announced they will be hosting the Aviation Job Expo later this year in the heart of London.

The free to attend job fair hopes to attract visitors from all roles within the industry, including pilots, cabin crew and engineers. The job fair will provide a platform in which candidates can meet with potential employers in an informal setting to discuss career opportunities.  

CEO of Aviation Job Search, Ian Partington, said, “Connecting jobseekers with employers is at the heart of what we do here, so it seems like a natural progression to host this event.”

The event is also welcoming aspiring aviators, who can speak directly with Universities and Flight Schools about a possible career in aviation.

In 2018, the International Air Transport Association (IATA) forecast the number of air travellers to reach 8.2 billion by 2037, double the current figure. With such strong growth projected, Director General and CEO of IATA, Alexandre de Juniac, suggested that this would support a further 100 million aviation jobs globally.   

Partington continued, “There has been much discussion around how companies will facilitate this growth in recent months. It’s vital that we all play our part in developing the next generation of professionals, and we hope that this event will be a pathway into the industry for many of our visitors.”

Headline sponsors, BAE Systems, will be on hand to speak with visitors looking to join their 83,000 strong workforce around the world. The company provides some of the world’s most advanced, technology-led defence, aerospace and security solutions.
