The Fairfield School of Business (FSB) was delighted to host over one thousand varied jobs on offer – from over 30 employers – in conjunction with the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) and Gatwick Airport Limited at its Croydon campus.




George Washington, FSB Croydon’s Student Union President, said: ‘I was very impressed with the variety of roles and the wonderful array of international brands such as Ted Baker, British Airways and Costa Coffee and many more all at our campus. I was extremely delighted to see so many FSB students attend on the day too. It was very uplifting for them.’

Mr Mohammed Zaidi, FSB’s CEO, added: ‘Gatwick airport is truly a city that never sleeps. There are so many great opportunities available right across the airport. We encourage anyone looking for a job to attend the highly successful events led by the DWP and Gatwick Airport. It was an honour to host and support so many job seekers in the Croydon area. Further, Kunal Chan Mehta, our PR Manager who initiated the collaboration, is already working on future such events with the DWP.’


Dr John Pomeroy, FSB’s Principal, commented: ‘We were truly inspired by the DWP Work Coaches who helped connect so many people with local opportunities and getting job seekers offers on the spot. Such events lift people’s self-esteem, character and confidence while thoroughly helping the local economy.’

King Junior, Jobcentre Plus (JCP) DWP Surrey Service Leader, said: ‘What a great day, another successful Gatwick Jobsfair with hundreds of attendees and lots of job offers on the day with more to come. The success of these events is very much down to the collaboration between DWP and Gatwick Airport Limited and the drive, desire and determination to fill the vacancies on offer. I have to say a special thank you to Karen Cullinane from Gatwick Airport whose engagement and intervention helped make the jobfairs a reality and our Employer Engagement Teams who continue to facilitate a world class employer offer.

This was the first event at the Fairfield School of Business in Croydon, a wonderful location facilitated by a great team on site who really went out of their way to look after us and our customers and we look forward to working closely with them again in the future.’
