British Airways Graduate Scheme

British Airways is a world-class airline with a proud history. But the sector is changing fast. Data and new technologies make British Airways serving their 45 million customers both simpler and more complicated. Regulation and sustainability add to the complexity. Customer needs and expectations are ever-evolving. And the business needs to tackle many challenges that are industry-wide or unique to British Airways themselves specifically.

The company is seeking agile-minded, forward-thinking graduates and undergraduates. Dynamic high-performers who can act fast, think smart, make us lean and reap the rewards of teamwork. People who will stand up to whatever’s thrown at them. And then do what it takes to guarantee success for the business, customers and each other.

At British Airways, their Graduate & Business Placement programmes offer something unique which they say helps separate them from the rest of the competition.

The company’s emerging talent and their alumni work in teams across the business. Making commercially impactful decisions and helping to drive changes that are needed to achieve strategic goals. On one of British Airways’ programmes you’ll engage with some of the brightest minds in the industry, on projects that are varied and interesting. Formal and informal training will help you play a key role in shaping the future of the airline industry.
