Gatwick Guide

Welcome to the Gatwick Guide

As the UK’s second largest airport, serving over 45 million passengers a year, you’re now part of our Gatwick Family, a diverse group of around 30,000 people that keep us operational every day of the year.

The Gatwick Guide is designed to give you the essential information about working at Gatwick. There is a lot to take in when you first start somewhere, so you may wish to refer back to this guide over the next few months and throughout your time with us – it’s here to help you.

The Guide covers a lot of information to help you in your day-to-day job. It also explains what's expected of you and how every single member of staff help to provide the great experience that our passengers have come to expect at Gatwick Airport.
