Airport security company, ICTS, is creating up to fifty new jobs at Belfast International Airport.
Passenger growth lies behind the decision by ICTS to expand its workforce to 250. It is seeking to recruit personnel from all over Northern Ireland.
All Job Centres are advertising the positions.
ICTS says the airport is heading toward a record number of passengers this summer and it wants to prepare for the unprecedented traffic.
The company operates Central Search at the airport, which, at its peak, processes up to 12,000 passengers a-day.
ICTS Station Manager, Chris Armstrong, said: “We are having to go beyond the South Antrim area to recruit staff. That’s why all Job Centres throughout Northern Ireland have been made aware of our requirement needs.
“This year, the airport expects to exceed 6 million passengers for the first time in its history and, put simply, that means new jobs and new opportunities.
“This recruitment drive by ICTS is necessary to keep pace with the numbers of passengers who go through Central Search and on to Airside facilities and Departure Gates.
“We’re delighted to be expanding, which reinforces the economic importance of the airport site not only to immediate Council areas, but to all eleven Councils in Northern Ireland.”
