What do we offer?

At Airbus Group, we offer exceptional opportunities for both students and graduates to make your mark on the future. With internships, graduate programmes, and direct vacancies on offer, we can help create outstanding career paths for talented, passionate people.

Internships with Airbus Group are the ideal chance to get an insight into a genuinely fascinating, life-changing business. Positions are generally available in disciplines across our business; including engineering, manufacturing, supply chain, HR, marketing, communications and government affairs, finance, IT, and communications.

Lasting for six to twelve months, our UK internships are located at the Airbus sites in Filton, Bristol, and Broughton, near Chester, and the Airbus Defence and Space sites in Portsmouth and Stevenage. Other internship opportunities are available at Airbus Group locations in France, Germany and Spain, for which we also welcome your applications.

For graduates with strong ambition and sound commercial awareness, our Airbus and Airbus Defence and Space UK Graduate Programmes are your chance to be part of something bigger; to learn and grow in an environment where every voice counts, and where every team’s contribution has a global impact.

The graduate programmes last for two to three years, and involve a series of structured rotational placements, to help develop your technical and management skills. Your placements might take place in the UK, or within our European locations, so you’ll gain a transnational overview of your division’s work.

Our graduates benefit from comprehensive training and support, to ensure that you reach your potential and grab every opportunity with both hands. With training courses, career planning, and, in some cases, chartership mentoring, you can drive your development in the direction you choose. We encourage you to own your career, and to take pride in building it, one journey at a time.

For those looking for a direct role, we also offer opportunities for graduates to go straight into an operational role within the business.

Whichever path you choose, you’ll join a team where we’re dedicated to accomplishing the extraordinary. You’ll find a platform for international success, and you’ll discover new ideas that help us reach new horizons. Together, we can achieve phenomenal things - on the ground, in the sky, and in space.
