Located in the Midlands, the landlocked county of Leicestershire is home to almost one million people. Bordering counties including Staffordshire, Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire, Leicestershire is a county with a number of Aviation opportunities, and the region's recruitment agencies help with the process of hiring permanent, temporary and contract staff members.
The recruitment agencies throughout the county assist employers in hiring staff for Aviation roles. Recruiters are present in all parts of Leicestershire, including Leicester, Hinckley and Harborough. It is particularly useful that the county itself is serviced by a number of employment agencies that specialise in the recruitment of Aviation professionals. These agencies complement those that hire for the sector as well as many others.
Employment in Leicestershire is high, a figure that Aviation workers also contribute towards. In general, the Aviation sector seems to offer generous salaries, which is not unexpected due to the technical nature of many of the roles. A Logistics Officer, for example, can expect a starting salary in excess of £25,000. Aviation Business Development Executives, meanwhile can command a starting salary of £35,000, and there is a good chance of this increasing as experience grows.
The Aviation industry is thriving in Leicestershire, given it is home to two airports. East Midlands Airport in Castle Donington, with 4.5 million passengers a year, is the 11th busiest airport for passenger traffic and the second busiest for freight traffic. It is the site of a former RAF base which has now been decommissioned. The same is true of Leicester Airport, which was in use by the RAF between 1943 - 1947.
Elsewhere, the county is also home to Helicentre Aviation Ltd, which offers professional helicopter pilot training, while all things Aviation are covered at the Bruntingthorpe Aircraft Museum, where the significant history in this sector is highlighted.
