Sales and Marketing Manager from Newcastle Airport, Laura Hartshorne, joined us on campus to talk to our travel and tourism students about the different career opportunities available within the airline industry.
Laura highlighted the skills and qualities needed to progress in a range of roles and shared her experience and how she reached her current role.
Our second year students were able to learn more about the currently vacancies, and how to apply. Laura also discussed the impacts of the pandemic and future upcoming developments at Newcastle Airport.
Faye Clark, Travel & Tourism Lecturer, said:
“This was a fantastic opportunity for our students. Guest speakers enrich the student experience, encouraging them to engage in activities beyond the course, developing their communication and interpersonal skills.”
