The ideal candidate should have minimum of 1 years’ experience driving Heavy Goods Vehicles in the airside environment. You will have the appropriate DVLA licence or a company “Certificate of Competence” (COC). Alternatively, you may have experience of driving 7.5 tonne vehicles on public roads.

What you’ll get in return

You’ll be part of a friendly organisation who values the part their people play. You’ll see that there’s no place like an airport to work in, either. A unique, fast-paced environment, bustling with people, it’s a world in itself, where every day brings a new experience. So, you’ll enjoy plenty of variety and development opportunities and you’ll have our full support and training, for the whole of your career journey with us.

Working in an Airside role, to follow aviation security requirements, you will be required to hold a full Airside Security Pass. To obtain this we will need 5 years' full referencing history, with a Criminal Record Check.
