IAG Cargo to expand team, hire 500 people across board
This landmark recruitment campaign will support IAG Cargo to expand its cargo operation and meet growing customer demand.
IAG Cargo, the cargo division of International Airlines Group (IAG), announces to create more than 500 new roles over the next 12 months in the biggest recruitment drive in the organisation’s history, in areas ranging from operations to transformation.
This landmark recruitment campaign will support IAG Cargo to expand its cargo operation and meet growing customer demand. The business has welcomed many new customers since the start of 2021.
IAG Cargo’s Q3 revenues increased by 34 per cent compared to the same period in 2020 showing sustained growth as the business increases capacity across its network. As part of the campaign, IAG Cargo will be recruiting in areas across the business including operations, revenue and inventory management, data & analytics and projects.
Commenting on the recruitment drive, David Shepherd, managing director, IAG Cargo said, “IAG Cargo is a growing business offering rewarding careers in a fast-paced environment, where no day is the same. We give individuals the opportunity to put ideas forward, have varied career paths, work autonomously and explore their potential with the support of their team. We put a big emphasis on internal promotion and being part of the IAG group means that our employees can not only move ‘up’ but across into other parts of the group. This recruitment drive will see us recruit broadly, advertising a variety of new roles.”
IAG Cargo has seen a growing demand for some of its specialist products such as Constant Climate, which supports the movement of temperature-sensitive cargo such as vaccines, its dedicated perishable product Constant Fresh and its Critical product which continues to be popular for customers needing to transport emergency items.
