Inspiring Young People - Work Experience at East Midlands Airport

Work Experience

The Covid-19 pandemic is having a profound effect for everyone, and particularly for the aviation, travel and tourism sector.  The Airport has a number of new Covid-secure rules and regulations.  In order reduce the number of people in our buildings and therefore ensure maximum social distancing, there are very strict protocols about who is allowed into the Terminal building.  Only business critical employees, crew and traveling public may enter the building.  Our operationally critical departments such as Air Traffic Control, the Control Room and the Fire Department have even stricter rules about visitors as a precautionary measure, to further reduce risk to these critical areas and maintain business resilience. 

With that in mind, we have taken the difficult decision to pause our Work Experience Programme for the time being.  Once the situation improves, once restrictions allow, we plan to launch a brand new Work Experience Programme which is likely to be a blended programme offering virtual and onsite experiences.  We will update this web page with details as soon as they are available.
