Our UK Graduate Programmes provide exceptional graduates the opportunity to master managerial and technical skills. Over the 2/3 year period it combines rotational placements with focused training and the possibility of European assignments as well as further personal development and the chance to build your professional network.

From day one, you will be assigned to a particular department and will be guided through the various placement opportunities that exist within your function, the wider business and even with customers and suppliers. This, along with training provided works to ensure you are ready and experienced enough to take the next step of your career following the programmes conclusion.

The Fuel and Inerting Systems Domain is part of the Engineering Systems Centre of Competence and is a dynamic organisation that is recognised worldwide as a technical leader in commercial Fuel Systems, with key involvement in all major Airbus commercial aircraft programmes. As part of the team responsible for providing complete Fuel Systems, from concept through to customer support for all Airbus aircraft, you will be at the forefront of these
developments.

The Fuel and Inerting Systems Domain is predominantly situated in the UK and is responsible for the architecture, design, aircraft integration, certification and in-service support of all aspects of Fuel Systems and Inerting Systems. This includes Fuel Tank Modelling and Simulation; Fuel Measurement, Management, Control and Interfaces; Ground and Flight Transfer of Fuel; Fuel Jettison; Fuel Tank Inerting; Electromagnetic Hazard Protection; Cockpit Interfaces and Built In Test/Health Monitoring.

These areas involve the development of complex architectures including the related computer control systems and fluid systems. Fuel and Inerting Systems present many technical and business challenges that need to be understood and managed. They operate in a very hostile environment at extremes of temperature and humidity, with the added challenge of intrinsic safety due to the volatile nature of jet fuel. Given that fuel is contained mostly in the wings of modern aircraft, it is not surprising that Fuel and Inerting Systems are a significant factor in aircraft weight, cost and reliability.

The philosophy of the Fuel and Inerting Systems Domain is to have the best systems, people and partnerships, thus becoming a reference for the Fuel and Inerting Aviation Industry. Over time, our new Graduates have the opportunity to develop their skills and grow both as Engineers and Team Leaders. We are keen to have new Graduates who want to develop their full potential, and take on challenging roles.

This role will be based in Bristol, Filton (must be flexible) and will receive the full Airbus UK Graduate programme benefit package including an annual Salary of £27,000.00 - plus a welcome payment of £2,000.00

Main activities of the role may include;

Our new Graduates are the lifeblood of future developments, and there are plenty of opportunities, whether it be in the design of new system architectures, working with Suppliers to develop new equipment, resolving in-service problems, working on cutting-edge research ideas or working with colleagues in other parts of Airbus to define the best aircraft level solution.

Our Graduates operate in a very challenging environment, where they will be given a real and valued role within the Fuel and Inerting Systems Team. The Team is running a number of parallel programmes and as such new Graduates will get a real insight into the operation of business and one of its more complex and varied systems. Graduates will get the opportunity to have multiple placements working with experienced teams across the Airbus Aircraft Family, from new developments through to in-service Aircraft, as well as working alongside customers, suppliers and manufacturing assembly where necessary.

As part of your Engineering Graduate Programme you'll have the option to enrol on to our Postgraduate Diploma in Engineering, allowing you to further build upon your technical skills, knowledge and business understanding, whilst aligning with competencies as specified by the UK Engineering Council.

The Postgraduate Diploma is gained through a combination of academic lectures and project-based work, where the qualification you will obtain through this programme is a key milestone on the path towards registration as a Chartered Engineer
