What we Offer


We are an employer of choice and can offer unparalleled career and development opportunities in an exciting and dynamic business.


This is an exciting time to be working in the East Midlands and proposals to build a new economy centred around the region’s strengths in logistics, advanced manufacturing, and R & D are taking shape. In a further boost, a joint bid by MAG, neighbouring landowners, local authorities and LEPs for an East Midlands Freeport was recently given the green light by Government. Key to its success was EMA’s status as a gateway for global trade. Once established, the Freeport will grow trade, create 60,000 jobs, and attract investment across the region. Areas given Freeport status will benefit from a wide package of tax reliefs, simplified customs procedures, streamlined planning processes to boost redevelopment, and government support to promote regeneration and innovation.


Join EMA today, and you’ll not only play a major role in helping the airport recover from, and build upon, the impact of the pandemic, but you’ll also help shape thinking around the future direction of the East Midlands economy.
