Over 6,600 jobs available at Changi Airport

CNA – Over 6,600 jobs are available across Changi Airport as the commercial aviation sector continues to recover.

The mass hiring aims to “fill much needed positions to power Singapore’s travel recovery”, Changi Airport Group (CAG) said in an update on its website on Tuesday.

The vacancies are for both professional, manager, executive and technician (PMET) roles and non-PMET roles.

“Hiring is focussed on attracting talent for much-needed frontline passenger service positions and newly created roles in innovation and technology,” it added.

Over 20 aviation companies will be conducting on-site interviews at the One Aviation Careers Fair, which will run on May 27 and 28 at the Suntec City Convention Centre.

This means suitable jobseekers can “apply, get interviewed and be hired immediately”, it added.

Airport partners are offering “market competitive salaries and incentives to attract new staff”, CAG said, with ground handling firms SATS and data among those that are hiring.

Airport emergency services and cybersecurity officers are also among the positions that are available. This comes as monthly passenger traffic at Changi Airport crossed the one million mark for the first time in two years, with 1.14 million passengers passing through Changi Airport in March.

In March, Minister for Transport S Iswaran said Singapore’s aviation sector is ramping up recruitment efforts to ensure the airport runs smoothly as travel resumes.
