Now boarding! Melbourne Airport looks to fill hundreds of jobs.

The airport is Victoria’s largest employment precinct outside of the Melbourne CBD, and the positions on offer range from cabin crew, front of house hospitality and retail, through to law enforcement, transport, and security.

More than 40 airport-based businesses are on the lookout for staff, welcoming resumes from entry-level applicants through to senior management.

Melbourne Airport CEO Lorie Argus said it’s the perfect time to start a career in aviation, with passenger numbers on the rise.

“The airport has bounced back to 88% of pre-Covid passenger volumes, so it’s vital our staffing levels keep pace with traveller demand,” she said.

“Not only are we seeing more people travelling, but we’re also renovating parts of the terminal – such as adding 11 new restaurants in Terminal 1 – creating new retail and hospitality opportunities.

“Qantas, Jetstar, Rex, Bonza and Virgin all have vacancies to fill, and a couple of our international carriers are also recruiting.

“This is the first time we’ve held a careers fair on-airport, and it’s a great opportunity to get a feel for the environment and speak directly with employers.”

Melbourne Airport’s Jobs Fair will be held in front of Terminal 4 and will operate over two separate sessions from 2pm to 4pm and 4pm to 6pm.

Registration is essential and jobseekers can sign up to attend the event via Eventbite,

Complimentary Terminal car parking in the Terminal 4 Car Park will be available to guests at the event.
