Graduate Programmes & Business Placements at British Airways

Joining one of our graduate programmes, or taking up a Head Office Business Placement, will put you at the heart of British Airways. We’re one of the world’s biggest and best-known airlines, a truly global business and an instantly recognisable brand.

We’re offering responsibility, variety and challenge, right from the start of your British Airways journey. You’ll have the chance to work on projects with real value, then see the impact you make – and even shape the future of what our airline looks like. On completing your programme or placement, you’ll be equipped to follow a wealth of different paths.

What are we looking for from you? Standout qualities that will equip you to impress in a rapidly evolving industry. A knack for working at pace. The hunger to build your knowledge. A sharp commercial mindset. And a talent for teamwork. It’s a rare combination. But that’s what it takes to thrive today at British Airways.

And be part of our future. The airline sector is changing fast. The rise of data and new technologies makes serving our 40 million customers both simpler and more complicated. Matters like Brexit, regulation and sustainability add to the complexity, while customers’ needs and expectations are ever-evolving.

In this shifting landscape, British Airways has to tackle many challenges, both those faced by the industry as a whole, and the ones unique to our business. This takes an agile-minded, forward-thinking workforce that can act fast, think smart, make us lean and reap the rewards of teamwork.

That’s why we’re looking for dynamic high-performers who are ready to work together in a faster, smarter, leaner way. People who will stand up to whatever’s thrown at them. And then do what it takes to guarantee success for the business, our customers and each other.

We set high standards for our graduates. But as it takes a lot to meet our expectations, we offer plenty back in return. You can expect regular feedback and recognition for a job well done, and rewards well beyond a salary and benefits package that’s likely to make you the envy of your peers.
