Do you love going to the airport? Are you the first person to volunteer to pick up or drop off travelling friends and relatives? Would you love to work as a check-in agent, baggage handler, or customer service assistant? Or, let’s be honest, you’d happily take any job – as long as it’s at the airport?

Recent ITC graduate Mohammed Alzergawi has a role as an airport ambassador at the domestic terminal at Auckland International Airport.
“This is a great opportunity to work and meet new people from all around the world,” says Mohammed. “I am constantly developing the skills I learnt at ITC by interacting with people and providing exceptional customer service to passengers arriving and departing Auckland.”
Natasha Allen, ITC’s Campus Manager Botany, says that the opportunity for ITC’s students to work at the airport is second to none and has already resulted in new roles for students.
Students who wish to apply to work at the airport have an initial interview with Natasha; they then attend a presentation at the airport about the role and requirements, which leads to a formal interview. A full security check is then completed on each individual, as safety is paramount at the airport.
“Successful students are then given the very smart and stylish new black and red uniform – they all feel so proud to wear it and to represent the airport and New Zealand to arriving and departing passengers.”
And the work itself is thoroughly enjoyable, reports Mohammed.
“The days are varied and occasionally you even get to meet celebrities and athletes, which is very exciting. Every day I learn something new, which means I am always challenged and ensures that I enjoy each shift I work.”
“I appreciate the opportunity that has come my way and am excited that it will potentially open doors for me in this industry.”
“Mohammed’s attitude is fantastic,” says Natasha, “and goes to prove, yet again, that putting in hard work, showing commitment and dedication will definitely pay off.”Posted in In the Community, Student success | Tagged Airline training, Airport, Aviation Training, ITC, ITC Award winning training, ITCNZ, New Zealand Tourism Training, Tourism training, Travel Training, Volunteer scheme | Leave a reply
