British Airways

Our company in a nutshell

Explore a world of opportunity

A career with British Airways isn't all about being in the air as a pilot or one of our cabin crew. We have over 40,000 people in all kinds of roles and business areas, all going above and beyond to deliver our promise to around 37 million customers every year.

Our complex business is always evolving too, offering huge scope and wide range of possibilities for you to explore.

Our graduate programmes

Joining one of our graduate programmes will put you at the heart of British Airways, the UK's flag carrier, a truly global business and one of the most recognised brands in the world.

We're offering responsibility, variety and challenge, right from the start of your career. 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, there will be a wealth of different paths to follow.

The programmes offer a broad range of experiences across the airline or within one more specialist function, but all with a strong customer focus and the objective of developing and nurturing talent for the future. Our graduates undertake real roles and responsibilities from the very beginning, bringing new ideas and approaches whilst learning key skills, capabilities and experience from the colleagues around them.

The programmes offer additional development through leadership and personal development, professional qualifications and opportunities to go 'beyond the day job'. We also encourage them to be involved with various community initiatives, such as charity fundraising and supporting local projects.

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 at British Airways.
