Big recruitment day at Stockholm Arlanda
Swedavia, in collaboration with its partners at Stockholm Arlanda Airport – is to host a big Recruitment Day at the gateway on January 30 in a bid to fill some of the thousands of new jobs being created by the airport’s expansion and rising traffic figures.
Sweden’s airport operator notes that with air travel taking off again after the pandemic, the airlines making major investments in route development and a new 11,000 square-metre addition to Terminal 5 set to open in mid-2023, the time is right to start a new recruitment drive.
The expansion of Terminal 5 will include some 50 new shops and restaurants as well as a modern, expanded security checkpoint.
Before the pandemic, about 20,000 people worked at Arlanda, which makes the airport one of Sweden’s biggest workplaces.
In order to give companies and other organisations operating at the airports the opportunity to introduce themselves and meet people who are interested in starting a job at Sweden’s biggest airport, Swedavia is arranging a Recruitment Day at Arlanda on Monday, January 30, in collaboration with airport partners.
It will be held at the Clarion Hotel Arlanda Airport between 11am and 6pm and is open to the general public with no advance sign-up required.
“We see really great interest in our Recruitment Day and great commitment from both companies and visitors. We expect many participants, most of whom seeking new employment or wanting to know more about what the airport can offer in terms of job opportunities,” says Marie Wiksborg, director of business support at Swedavia.
“Along with Swedavia and the different services we offer as an airport operator, some 30 other companies have currently signed up. There are job openings in restaurants, hotels, shops, other services, security screening, ground handling services, logistics, car rental, technical maintenance and communication, IT and administration.
“The Swedish Border Police, Braathens Regional Airlines (BRA), the currency exchange Forex and VY airport buses will be on hand to present their career opportunities. People can apply for summer jobs, hourly-rate jobs and full-time jobs.”
Colleague, Swedavia’s chief commercial officer, Charlotte Ljunggren, said: “Together with our partners, we average 600,000 customer contacts a day at Arlanda.
“We are really keen to find the best candidates to help create positive customer experiences every day and are pleased to see that many people have already shown interest in working at the airport.
“A large international airport like Arlanda is a unique workplace environment where every day is different. Even though there are many people who work at the airport and who are employed by many companies, there is a strong sense of togetherness and good collaboration.
“Combined with the dynamic environment and many encounters with people from all over the world, it makes this workplace really special.”
