Dublin Airport’s latest jobs fair has kicked off with 12 companies offering positions in retail, catering, concessions and logistics.

“We are seeing big interest from students for our seasonal roles and have a variety of contract types available to suit all lifestyles, including 20, 30 and 40 hour contracts,” the airport announced.

The event takes place on March 3 and 4 at the Radisson Hotel at the airport, with representatives of Dublin Airport Authority to join the hiring companies, which include Butler’s Chocolates, CaffĂ© Nero, Dublin Express and Blackjack Beauty Ambassador Agency, in meeting would-be candidates.

The airport expects to cater for around 30 million passengers in 2023, after a difficult 2022 when staff shortages led to long queues at security check-points and complaints from customers.
