"The people I work with now, I worked for when I started as a contractor. The only difference now is that instead of wearing overalls, I’m wearing a suit. But don’t let the suit fool you...if there was an emergency happening I’m the first to get changed and get on the tools!

Working at the airport has always been in my family. My grandad was head of electrical engineering in the 70s and then my dad worked here for about 16 years too. He used to bring me in at the weekend when I was much younger and drive me around the airport. It was brilliant, such good fun.

The first week I started here I just knew it was for me and it’s been the best thing I’ve ever done - and the job I’ve always looked for.

My dad’s really really pleased - and though my grandad’s not around anymore, I’m pretty sure he would have been pleased that I’m flying the family flag here at Gatwick.”

Keith started his career in the RAF where he worked on Hercules transporter aircraft and the Tornado squadron in Kuwait. Following a spell in industry, he joined Gatwick four years ago as a handyman. He quickly worked his way to become a field engineer and now he has his dream job as Engineering Manager.

Shane Edward O'Sullivan - I would really love to win as I never win anything! The worst of all being the time I was in the costume competition of a Father Ted table quiz, I went all out and dressed in full proper bishop regalia which I happened to have lying around. I was sure as I looked around the room at the feeble bits of paper tucked into black shirts that I was the winner. The prize was a bottle of Hennessy if I remember correctly. I digress! I ended up losing to a nun wearing a tatty paper headband with a bit of black fabric on. Most disappointing! Anyhow, I would love a good set of headphones 😊

Linda: “I married an Englishman. We’d been dating for five years and I just couldn’t handle the distance anymore. Our airport goodbyes were getting so painful and we were all too ready to have a final airport ‘Hello’. So I bought that one way ticket we’d always talked about. Little did I expect my first job would be here a few months later, and my husband now works here too!”

Erin: “This is my first visit to the UK, to see my big sister. We usually message to keep in touch. The time difference makes a slow go of it but we work at it! When I was younger, I definitely fixated on Linda but I look back now and think ‘what a waste of time!’ - just kidding! I always say that my brothers and sisters are the best six people I will ever know. Family really is the biggest thing.”

After having grown up together in New York, Erin was so excited to see where her big sister now calls home after eight years. Linda was excited for Erin to spend time with her family in the UK and for her to see both London and Gatwick!

Emma Nott - I don't know if deserve is the right would, but I would be very appreciative of an early Christmas present!! I'm a student Paramedic in London, but live in Jersey out of term time. So being busy with placement and uni work and flying home three days before Christmas, I dont have much time to shop for friends and family!!! So an early Christmas present would go to a loved home!!

Paula May - I moved to Gibraltar in April with my husband who is in the Royal Navy and came back to the UK for a holiday in October to see my first grandson who was born two weeks early in September. Two days before I was due to fly back my father unexpectedly passed away. I’ve been in the UK ever since. I am going back to Gibraltar to see my husband on 8 Dec for Christmas and have not really thought about Christmas. If my grandson hasn’t been born two weeks early I wouldn’t have been here for my family, and my father wouldn’t have held his great grandson 💙❤️ I’ve missed out on all the Christmas meals, parties & balls in Gibraltar but wouldn’t swap the time I’ve had with my mother. Reading the T&Cs I wouldn’t be able to collect the prize in the timescales quoted but wanted to share my story and have a go at the screenshot 🎁

"We'd dreamt about owning a base in Europe for years, but it wasn't until an offhand comment by some friends that we decided to take the plunge. They told us they'd seen an article in The Times newspaper about buying property in Italy. So two of us, from the west coast of Canada, travelled to the east coast of Italy - and we fell in love with the place." - Jill

"The property we bought is in this really tiny village, where we now know all of the locals - and all of their friends! Every time we come over, we all get together - and they say "the Canadian girls are here!" - Gail

Now as well as visiting their property in Alberobello, western Italy, Gail and Jill regularly stop in by the UK to visit their friends from Essex who inspired the idea. As for speaking Italian? As Jill will herself admit, it's very much a work in progress: "We can order in a restaurant, but when you have to go to the hardware store, that’s a whole different ball-game!”

We caught up with Gail and Jill in the South Terminal departure lounge, sipping a bucks fizz, while they were waiting for their flight back to Vancouver.

“I speak four and a half languages - with English being the half!

I was born in Tunisia and raised in France where I trained as a graphic designer. When I moved to the UK, design work was scarce so I found a job at Gatwick working on the information desk – perfect for all my languages. I've been here for a while - 17 years to be precise! - but I now work in the Gatwick Control Centre, making sure the airport runs smoothly.”

Sammy used his linguistic talents to land a job in the airport originally, but the many skills he learnt as a graphic designer have also come in handy throughout his time at Gatwick – especially during a recent project to redesign his work space - as well as in the kitchen!

"I love cooking, especially improvising with a glass of wine. I live with my son, who's 15. He’ll say ‘Dad, there's nothing in the fridge. There's no food.’ I go to the kitchen and just bring a few things together and there you go, a dish - et voila! You have to step back, think and then activate.”

In every job, including cooking for his son, Sammy is the ultimate problem solver, looking at all the information available and offering the best advice and solution he possibly can.

"In my old job I was travelling probably two to three times a week, so I pretty much spent my life in airports. Little did I know then that I’d end up working in one."

"As a passenger there are so many things that I didn't appreciate about how an airport runs and how complicated the operation is. When I was invited to interview at Gatwick I remember looking at the job description and thinking 'this is really cool' - I didn't know jobs like this even existed."

- Helen Teschauer, Food and Beverage Business Development Manager

Helen moved to the UK from New York to study law, but ended up working in hotels, where she made the most of her two languages: French and German. She’s now Food and Beverage Business Development Manager at Gatwick, and also co-founder of a micro-brewery, Gosnells Mead.
