The Fuel and Inerting Systems Domain 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.
We are predominantly situated in the UK and are responsible for the architecture, design, aircraft integration, certification and in-service support of all aspects of Fuel Systems and Inerting 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 Graduate Engineers will have the opportunity to develop their skills and grow both as Engineers and Team Leaders. We are keen to have new Graduate Engineers who want to develop their full potential, and take on challenging roles.
As a Graduate Engineer in our team, the work you carry out will cover many topics including, but not limited to:
We are entering an exciting time in our industry, with the focus very much on environmentally sustainable aviation. Therefore the topics listed above are not just limited to traditional kerosene-based fuel systems, but also to new and novel technologies - the design of current and future fuel systems, and the impact that novel fuels such as Hydrogen and Sustainable Aviation Fuel will have on these systems is of high importance and interest to enable Airbus to lead aviation into the future.
Our Graduate Engineers 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 Graduate Engineers 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 transnationally alongside customers, suppliers and manufacturing assembly where necessary.
We are looking for Graduates who have an engineering or technical degree. This can include (but is not limited to) the following areas of expertise:
Desirable completed modules include Fluid Mechanics, Fluids & Thermodynamics, Systems Design and Integration, Power Electronics, Control Systems, Digital Circuits and Systems, Embedded and Real Time Systems, Programming in C / C++ / Java
Successful candidates will also be able to demonstrate the following skills and behaviours:
As a graduate with us, you’ll be a full-time employee and working on real projects and making a difference from day one. That’s why we make sure you’re properly rewarded for the work you do.
