About Us

The Airport Academy opened at East Midlands Airport in June 2013. It has been established to provide a service to individuals in the local community who are looking for work at the airport as well as a bespoke recruitment service for airport employers.

East Midlands Airport is committed to supporting its local community and aims to address unemployment by supporting local people into employment within the airport site where possible.

By establishing the Airport Academy in partnership with 'Stephenson College' and 'Jobcentre Plus', the airport is able to provide a tailored recruitment service to airport employers as well as a pre-employment training and recruitment service to local job seekers.
