In response to the resurgence in air travel following the pandemic, Changi Airport Group (CAG) has launched a significant recruitment drive in Singapore targeted at hiring more than 6,600 additional workers for posts at Changi Airport (SIN).
CAG announced in a statement released on May 17, 2022, that on May 27 and 28, 2022, it will organize a roadshow at the Suntec Singapore Convention & Exhibition Centre near SIN airport to speed up the recruitment process.
CAG currently has about 6,600 unfilled positions, including professional, management, executive, and technician (PMET) as well as non-PMET positions. Ground handling, quality assurance coordination, and airport emergency service positions are among the positions that the airport is focusing on “attracting talent for much-needed frontline passenger service positions, as well as newly developed opportunities in innovation and technology.”
“The One Aviation Careers Fair is the must-go event for those looking for a fulfilling career in the fast recovering and growing aviation sector. There will be themed career talks from airport partners across a wide range of positions from passenger services, operations, and engineering. On-site interviews by more than 20 aviation companies will mean suitable job seekers can apply, get interviewed, and be hired immediately,” the CAG statement reads.
“New staff will be proud to know that they are part of the Changi family, contributing to the rebuilding of the air hub as the journey to travel recovery continues in Singapore,” CAG added.
The decision to hire 6,600 extra personnel was intended to help the country’s aviation sector recover more quickly.
According to the latest CAG passenger statistics, SIN airport handled more over 1.4 million passengers in March 2022, a 20 percent increase over pre-pandemic numbers. The airport handled 2.56 million passengers in the first quarter of 2022, which was only 16 percent of the traffic seen in the same time of 2019.
