This is the programme for you if you’re keen to grow into a commercially astute business leader and strategic advisor. You’ll be able to apply your eye for detail, strong analytical skills, integrity and drive to experience and influence every aspect of our business.
You’ll go straight into a hands-on role in the first of three one-year placements. Whichever team you’re with, you’ll quickly become an invaluable asset, gaining exposure to the breadth and depth of challenges that only one of the world's biggest and best-known airlines can provide.
You’ll be given the go-ahead to challenge the status quo and use your ingenious ideas to add value to everything you’re involved with. We want you to influence decisions that are a true catalyst for success.
These decisions are big, and can make a huge impact on the bottom line. You could soon be working on the purchase of new aircraft, agreeing investments in the latest on-board products, or coming up with innovative ideas to generate revenue.
We have influential finance teams sitting in every department. You’ll make the most of your three placements, spending one year absorbing everything you can from a different team. Your network will grow quickly.
