About the role

Taking on one of the most vital roles in the airport, you will make sure that all passengers have a safe and enjoyable experience. You might be the first or only person our passengers meet on their journey through the airport, and we want to provide excellent customer service at every stage. As an Aviation Security Officer, your role will involve:

  • Screening all people and vehicles passing through restricted areas using archway detectors and manual body searching when necessary

  • Manually searching luggage for prohibited items
  • Checking identification or travel documents for all passengers, staff and airport users

The important bit

Please note that all roles within Security begin with a three-week full time training course. If your application is successful, you will be made a conditional offer subject to pre-employment checks and passing our training course.

These courses will be running until May 2023, so if you are looking for a role to start in a couple of months time, apply now and we can book you in to a later training course.
