Heathrow is the UK’s premier international airport, with some 84 airlines flying direct to over 200 destinations worldwide. In the 2019 Skytrax World Airport Awards, Heathrow Terminal 5 was crowned ‘World’s Best Airport Terminal’ for the sixth time in its 11-year history, in addition to racking up the ‘Best Airport in Western Europe’ and ‘Best Airport for Shopping’ titles.
Over the next five years, Heathrow’s recruitment will be focused on delivering an expanded airport and third runway. Of particular focus will be skills in construction, engineering, logistics, IT and digital, and data analysis.
The airport is also home to the Heathrow Employment & Skills Academy, which supports people in Heathrow’s local community to find employment with employers and suppliers based at the airport. Since 2004, over 5,000 people have been placed into employment through the Academy.
