Application Process

All of our applications start through our online careers website. We’ll let you know by email if you’ve not been selected for the first stage.  Unfortunately, we can’t give detailed feedback on every application.


If you are successful at this first stage, you will start our formal assessment process. Depending on the job you have applied for, you might be asked to:

  • Attend an interview – this will normally be face to face however occasionally we might do this via telephone, Skype or Facetime. You will be asked questions designed to assess your suitability for the role and you should come prepared with examples of things you have done to demonstrate you have the skills and experience we need
  • Take a test – these may be done online, or when you come and meet us. These are designed to test specific skills we need for the job.
  • Deliver a presentation – we might ask you to prepare a presentation in advance and then deliver this to us as part of the selection process.
  • Carry out group activities – we may run assessment centres where part of the activities involve you working as part of a team or doing a role play.

If you are invited to meet with us in person, you will need to bring along photographic ID and proof of your right to work. This can be a passport, driving licence or work visa. If you do not have any photo ID, please get in touch with us and we can talk you through the options.

As a Disability Confident employer, Edinburgh Airport Limited is committed to encouraging applications from people with disabilities. We are committed to ensuring that candidates with disabilities are able to compete on equal terms with other applicants during the selection process.

Reasonable adjustments to the selection process will be made to ensure that you are not disadvantaged due to your disability. If you would like us to consider an adjustment to the selection process or any additional support, please get in touch.
