Morson International has been reappointed by Manchester Airports Group (MAG) to lead the recruitment of all interim staff across its three UK airports: Manchester, London Stansted and East Midlands. The three-year contract, with an option to extend for a further two, builds on Morson International’s ongoing relationship with the airport group, which saw it fill more than 750 interim vacancies during the last four years, spanning engineering (construction), HR, procurement, digital, finance, IT and more.
The new contract has innovation at its core, with Morson International tasked in delivering ongoing cost efficiencies, added value and bringing its employer value proposition (EVP) to life; whilst continuing to attract the talent needed to deliver the £multi-million transformation programmes at both Manchester and Stansted Airports.
In addition, the leading technical recruiter will support skills sourcing for MAG’s growing digital agency, MAG-O, which is on a mission to disrupt and develop new e-commerce platforms that transform air travel and generate new revenue streams. Morson International will also continue its core vetting services, delivering compliance and regulatory checks to clear new airport staff to required Civil Aviation Authority standards.
Adrian Adair, operations director at Morson International, said: “The sky really is the limit for MAG and we’re thrilled that our journey with them continues into a new, exciting phase.
“Our focus has evolved considerably over the years, from an external resource supporting engineering recruitment, to becoming a true operating partner to MAG’s internal teams. Our people working both on and off-site are now as much part of MAG as they are of Morson and are fully embedded within operations to maximise value for money,” he said. “We remain responsive and agile to meet MAG’s evolving talent needs and will continue our focus on maintaining full visibility of recruitment at the touch of a button, which is priceless for any business.”
Sarah McGuire, group head of recruitment at MAG, added: “Working with Morson can only be described as ‘collaborative’; our on-site account team are truly part of the in house recruitment function at MAG and have developed strong relationships across the HR team and hiring manager community with a focus on delivery at all times.”
