Heathrow Jobs and Careers Fair is an annual event. It aims to inspire local schools, parents and job seekers as part of the airport’s investment in the local communities of Ealing, Hillingdon, Hounslow, Slough, South Buckinghamshire, Spelthorne and Windsor & Maidenhead.
The event showcases some of the 413 companies that operate at Heathrow and the thousands of different skills development opportunities and roles available.
By attending, visitors meet employers face to face and gain a real understanding of the range of opportunities available and qualifications needed.
Apprentices, graduates and managers share their career journeys and have the latest information about vacancies, placements and training available at the Airport.
School groups attending are able to use a visit to the Heathrow Jobs and Careers Fair to meet the Ofsted requirements to deliver impartial careers information, advice and guidance.
Employers are able to meet teachers, parents, young people and jobseekers from the seven boroughs and demonstrate the different industries and skills at Heathrow.
Volunteering organisations and local councils will be on-hand to inform visitors about the exciting opportunities available in the local community, as well as how you can build your skills and confidence through volunteering to help you find employment.
Entry to the event is FREE.
Employers will be on-hand throughout the day to meet visitors and offer the following information:
- What opportunities they have on offer, including work experience, internships, graduate roles and apprenticeships
- What skills and qualifications you may need
- Development opportunities and career progression
- The next steps for building a successful career
We encourage individual visitors pre-book a space, but you can drop in anytime whilst the event is open. Groups from schools and colleges can book a convenient time slot to attend.
