Around 30 companies will be represented at the one-day event on July 30.

“For anyone who loves travel, loves aviation, loves the excitement of airports, now is a fantastic time to join the teams operating at Auckland Airport,” Hurihanganui said.
The airport was working with its airport partners to fulfill as many roles as possible throughout the fair, she said.
Many aviation employers, including Auckland Airport and Air New Zealand, have laid off large numbers of employees during the pandemic as Covid-19, border restrictions and lockdowns have put the industry in crisis mode.
Some retailers at Auckland Airport have yet to reopen since border restrictions were lifted as New Zealand’s tight labor market made it difficult to recruit the staff needed to open.
Hurihanganui said job seekers could register to attend one of three job fair sessions and speak directly to employers at individual exhibition booths and apply for jobs there.
There was a wide range of jobs available, from cabin crew, airline check-in, baggage handling, security, airport operations and emergency services, to skilled trades, roles infrastructure, retail assistants, hotel staff, chefs, baristas and cleaners, she says.
“We wanted to make it as easy as possible for job seekers to see the wide variety of airport jobs, talk directly to employers, ask questions of people they might work with and see how they might get a job. long-term career at the airport.
“Every organization operating in and around the terminal is looking to fill vacancies – from entry-level to senior management positions.”
