Placement dates: 3 day placement during August (Glasgow) or September (Cardiff)

The British Airways Work Experience Programme showcases areas of the business that are of interest to students looking to pursue a career within the airline industry. Our programme has recently been accredited with the Gold National Standard by Fair Train for offering quality 5 day placements. Many students see this opportunity as the start of their British Airways journey often coming back to apply for permanent positions or to join one of our apprenticeship schemes.

We have a new opportunity that has become available in Cardiff and Glasgow for students who are aspiring pilots. Flight Operations is the area that involves our team of pilots in British Airways, as well as the background support that goes alongside it.

In this 3 day placement, you will have the opportunity to gain an in-depth understanding of what it is like to be a pilot for a leading airline. You will have the opportunity to go gliding in partnership with the Air League Trust.
