Cornwall Airport Newquay is the largest commercial airport serving Cornwall and is ideally located as a gateway to some of the most popular destinations in the County, as well as being a key component in the continued economic development of Cornwall.
We have around 185 staff working at our airport in a wide range of roles, including airside services, landside services, security, air traffic control, fire, administration and catering.
Cornwall Airport Limited recognises that our employees are fundamental to our continued success and future growth. We also recognise the importance of training to enable our employees to achieve their full potential. We actively encourage and support our employees to gain the skills and qualifications that will support their future employability and meet the needs of our business.
Further to this we are committed to paying all of our employees a minimum of the Foundation Living Wage, which is £9.00 per hour. We feel this ensures that our staff feel valued but also are able to earn a wage that reflects the cost of living in the county.
We are currently running a trial work experience scheme in conjunction with Callywith College Travel and Tourism students; unfortunately at this time we are unable to accept any other students for work experience at the Airport however we hope to be able to in the future.
