  • Luke Mosley

    Incident Operations Manager, Gatwick Airport

    Meet one of the hosts for Aviation LIVE.

    My name is Luke Mosley and I am an Incident Operations Manager at Gatwick Airport.

    I have been in this role since April 2017, having previously worked in Airside Operations at Gatwick since June 2015. I have held various roles in the Aviation industry since November 2000, working for two airlines (Go-Fly Limited & easyJet) and at Bristol and Southampton airports.

    My core role is to ensure that Gatwick Airport is prepared for any event, and when things occasionally go wrong, ensuring that we respond to the situation in a measured and controlled approach to ensure a return to stability as quickly, and as safely as possible.

    I get to work with all stakeholders across the airport campus to ensure that we delivery a safe and secure experience for our passengers and staff.

  • Lauren McDaniel

    Gatwick Family Lead, Gatwick Airport

    My name is Lauren McDaniel and I am the Gatwick Family Lead at Gatwick Airport.

    I have been in this role since January 2019 but first joined Gatwick Airport as an Airport Security Officer over 10 years ago.  Since 2008 I have worked in a number of departments within the Operations team including, the ID Centre and Operations Senior Leadership team.

    As the Gatwick Family Lead my focus is to create an even better place to work for the 24,000 people based at Gatwick.  I, with the support of a team of volunteers – the Gatwick Family Ambassadors – work collaboratively with many of the 600 organisations based at Gatwick so we can deliver better together for our passengers and staff.

  • Dave White

    Apprentice Development Lead, Gatwick Airport

    My name is David White and I manage the Apprenticeship Program for Gatwick Airport Ltd. I started working for Gatwick Airport as an Electrical Apprentice in 1984 on a four-year program.

    At the completion of my apprenticeship I became a Technician working for North Terminal Engineering specialising in the baggage system. A promotion to shift Team Leader saw me responsible for leading a team of multiskilled Technicians to ensure we delivered a highly professional and reliable service to our customers.

    In June this year I took up the role of running the Apprenticeship Program. This is the role that has given me the greatest sense of satisfaction. I have a passion for apprenticeships and am committed to ensuring the Gatwick scheme is the very best it can be.

    I have a wonderful group of apprentices and it is up to me to deliver the best training and opportunities for them to become our engineers of the future. The support the apprentices receive from everyone at Gatwick Airport is outstanding and the foundation that enables us to deliver such a positive experience for our apprentices.

  • Sarah Kane

    Airport Security Officer, Gatwick Airport

    My name is Sarah Kane and I’m an Airport Security Officer at London Gatwick Airport. I started in March 2016 as a Boarding Pass Assistant, a position based purely around Access control. In September 2016 I became a Security Officer working internally to screen passengers and staff accessing the critical part of the airport. Before working here I was a retail team leader in a department store and worked many other jobs beforehand (Barista, Leisure Centre Duty Manager, full time in retail).

    I’m also involved in the On Job Training side of things so I help support the new starters. And I’ve also had the opportunity to take part in a few projects too while I’ve been on restricted duties due to knee damage. I’ve assisted in the ADP (Asset Data Platform) project and two projects within the car parking team.

  • Liberty Frankland

    Engineering Apprentice, Gatwick Airport

    Liberty is a third-year apprentice on the engineering apprenticeship scheme at Gatwick airport.

    “I am currently in my third year of my apprenticeship having completed five rotations around the airport, in which I completed a level 3 BTEC and Level 2 NVQ. Alongside working this year, I have started working on a level 3 NVQ and my HNC in general engineering. The best thing about the apprenticeship is that I can get stuck into jobs getting the experience whilst I study for my degree.

    I come from an engineering background with my family doing different areas of STEM. Before starting my apprenticeship, I did my A levels in German, Maths and Electronics. After this I then lived in Germany for six months working at a patent law attorney as well as taking classes at the university and travelling a little. I have worked in various environments where I gained skills I have brought with me to the airport.

    I decided that an apprenticeship was for me as I wanted to continue studying and learning but I also wanted the experience and context out in the field that I felt I wouldn’t get from going straight to uni. This doesn’t mean I don’t aim to get a degree, just that I hope to do it whilst working and with the support of work. I’m just taking my education is a way that suits me best and helps me thrive.

    I have been awarded a bursary through the IET supported by Ruth and Nigel Fine. The Institute of Engineering and Technology is a massive network of people in the STEM industry.  They aim to support and inspire engineers through their careers.”

  • Anthony Spikesman

    Electrical Apprentice, Gatwick Airport

    My name is Anthony Spikesman and I am a fourth-year apprentice. I am on a four year electrical apprenticeship programme and upon completion in September 2020 I will be a fully qualified electrical engineer.

    I’m in my final year of the apprenticeship so I have gained a lot experience working at the airport. I’m so happy to be out and about working in different areas of the airport learning about all the different types of equipment I will get to work on. There’s never a dull moment – after all, you’re working in an airport which is 24/7.

    Because every department is doing something different, there’s always a chance to learn something new – and you see how each of the sections of engineering work harmoniously to keep the airport running smoothly. There’s no better way to learn than being right in the heart of it.

    This programme has helped me grow in confidence and skills more than most other jobs could offer. I have gained so much experience and knowledge in my years of working for Gatwick and I can’t wait to see where this apprenticeship programme is going to take me.

  • George Coe

    Airside Flow Lead within Airside Operations, Gatwick Airport

    My name is George Coe and I am an Airside Flow Lead within Airside Operations at Gatwick Airport.

    I started working for Airside Operations at Gatwick in June 2017 after previously working for a business jet operator at Farnborough Airport. I have been working in the aviation industry since I left college in 2014 and I am also a qualified pilot. As I work shifts, I get lots of time on days off which allows me to do lots of flying!

    I am responsible for all air traffic movements at Gatwick Airport, ensuring every flight operates safely and on time. I work very closely with air traffic control at Gatwick and at the national air traffic control centre in Swanwick, as well as all airlines and handling agents to ensure the airport and local airspace is operating as efficiently as possible. I lead the team within the Airside Single Operations Centre to react to and resolve any problems and challenges that may arise as well as deal with any incidents and emergencies on the airfield.

  • Sam Berry

    Cabin Crew Apprentice, easyJet, Gatwick Airport

    My name is Sam Berry and I am a member of Cabin Crew for the airline easyJet.

    I have been working in the role for around one and a half years but I have always had a keen interest in aviation. Before this job I completed my degree, worked as both a gardener and in a café for the National Trust and even became an intern for the Change100 project at Nottinghamshire County Council. However, it is in my role as cabin crew that I have found my real passion.

    In September 2018, I was lucky enough to be selected as one of the first people in the country to start a Cabin Crew Apprenticeship. After having completed my initial cabin crew training course, I used the apprenticeship to learn more about the job whilst working in the role.

    Being a member of cabin crew requires: team work, excellent communication skills, an ability to problem-solve quickly and a can-do attitude. These skills are vital to deliver outstanding customer service whilst ensuring that our number one priority, health and safety, is always at the highest standards. These are the kind of things I learnt more about and got the chance to improve throughout my apprenticeship.

    In November 2019 I completed my apprenticeship. I have now also volunteered to be an Apprenticeship Ambassador. This new role will allow me to support the next generation of Cabin Crew Apprentices on their journeys to success.

    This apprenticeship has not just given me the skills I need for my current role but will also help me in my future career. I plan to build on what I’ve learnt to work my way into management in aviation. The apprenticeship is helping me to literally fly to new heights.

  • Tony Greenfield

    Border Force Higher Officer, Gatwick Airport

    My name is Tony Greenfield and I am a Border Force Higher Officer based at Gatwick Airport. I started my career in 2016 as an Apprentice Officer learning the many attributes required by the ever changing role. Having successfully completed the apprenticeship, I secured a permanent role with Border Force. Since 2016 I have taken the opportunity to enrol on various specialist training courses including forgery, safeguarding and operational training.
