Gatwick airport to create 800 jobs if runway plans approved

Gatwick Airport has announced it expects to create up to 800 specialist construction jobs from the mid-2020s should the plans to bring its Northern Runway into routine use go ahead. These jobs are part of the overall benefit of 18,400 additional local jobs that could be generated by 2038. Further training, education and procurement opportunities for local businesses will also be supported by proposals in Gatwick’s Outline Employment, Skills and Business Strategy (OESBS).

The strategy comes as Gatwick’s Chief Technical Officer, Cedric Laurier, spoke at the South East Construction Expo 2021 yesterday, discussing Gatwick’s innovative proposal for the Northern Runway, which itself represents one of the region’s largest capital investment projects for decades.
