Gatwick Jobs In Airport Security - Current Vacancies And Help

This link for more jobs in Sussex. This was our BAA security job page, it was first published over seven years ago, during that time new content has been added and redundant material taken away to reflect the changing nature of the business. At the time of writing BAA no longer owns Gatwick and the airport itself been significantly rebranded. For this reason you can say this page is under constant development. We're always interested in hearing feedback from anyone with experience of security work at Gatwick, BAA or their respective recruitment process. Our contact details are at the foot of the page.

In 2009 BAA sold Gatwick to Global Infrastructure Partners (GIP), and today they and their partners share the ownership. As you might imagine the airport security teams work around the clock, 365 days a year, to make sure passengers are safe and get the best possible start to their journey. The role of the security officer, includes searching people and their hand luggage, carrying out vehicle and ID checks, and operating X-ray machines and other equipment. Where training is required it will be given by BAA. At the time of writing passing an induction course was a contractual condition, there are also refresher courses from time to time. Before you can start work, you will also have to pass the counter terrorist checks, a criminal record check and a full medical examination.

Before you apply you'll need to know what Gatwick look for: good team players that enjoy working with the public and who are observant and vigilant. Fluency in English and full colour vision are essential.

Airport Security Officers

Nearly 35 million passengers travel through Gatwick each year each one of them has to pass through the relevant security checks. No experience is necessarily needed as full training is given. Great people skills and an eye for detail are just tow of the skills the job requires.

Making An Application

All details can be found at the Gatwick recruitment website. To summerise the recruitment process you'll need to complete an online application form and pass both a screen test and a paper screening.
