On October 3rd 2019, Aviation Job Search successfully hosted their first aviation job fair, the Aviation Job Expo, at London Gatwick. Over 700 jobseekers visited, all enthusiastic to find new employment and progress their career.

Job board, Aviation Job Search, has connected industry professionals with airlines, MRO companies and recruiters since 1999 and continually searches for new ways in which to expand their offerings and connect jobseekers to genuine career opportunities.

Aviation Job Search welcomed 22 exhibitors including BA CityFlyer, KLM UK Engineering, Wizz Air, Flybe, Bombardier, Loganair, Leonardo and BAE Systems.

During the fair, seven guest speakers covered a variety of topics designed to improve visitors’ current work life, or inspire them onto the next chapter in their careers.

Guest speaker and CEO of Online Lingo, Dr Molly Lim discussed how an online language learning system can help you advance in your career, and expand your world.

Lim said, “Aviation has changed lives and helped people travel to distant lands. With traveling, we encounter people from cultures different from our own. The key focus of the aviation industry is to get travelers from point A to B, but not without the challenges of language and communication.”

Travel Wellness Expert from nojetstress, Christopher Babayode, also shared his practice of nutritional therapy to cure jet lag for frequent fliers. During Christophers twenty years as a Flight Attendant for British Airways, he has visited 45 countries and clocked up 1.2 million miles which gives him plenty of experience regarding the subject.

Just 10 days before the expo, travel group Thomas Cook went into liquidation, leaving thousands of UK employees facing uncertainty about their future. Many ex Thomas Cook employees attended on the day to seek genuine opportunities during difficult times.
