Work Experience in Stansted
Monday 9th November to Friday 13th November
For a week during November I completed my work experience with Stansted Airport’s Education Co-ordinator Jo Davies.
I felt so welcomed by everyone, the week was fun and very interesting – I did not know they have so many jobs at the Airport.
During the week I got to go airside with a Ranger and we carried out a runway inspection. I worked landside and airside, had a tour of the terminal and ‘tweeted‘ some tweets.
For two days I worked alongside Jo in the ‘Aerozone’. I helped out with students and visited the viewing platform. This was probably the best bit of my whole experience.
I learnt a lot during my week at Stansted Airport. I realised the importance of speaking clearly and having the right dress code. It was a boost to my confidence. More importantly I now understand it’s very important to smile and say ‘good morning’ or ‘hello’ as it makes everyone feel better and gets you along way.
