About us:

We also actively support aircraft being assembled and those operating in-service - you will be working with us as a full member of the team.

Airbus Internships

Do you want to gain valuable experience and take on responsibility from the start? Then apply for an internship at Airbus.

The A350 Chief Engineer’s Team is looking for a great intern to join our friendly, self-motivated team. In the UK we look after the A350 Wing, Landing Gear, Fuel, and Inerting systems design and development. We are primarily accountable for the airworthiness and safety of all these areas.

What will you be doing? 

Success in this role will be largely down to you, but typically you will be:

  • Working with the Chief Engineering team on product evolution of the A350 family by defining aircraft technologies and requirements, attending regular team meetings, and contributing to product development ideas and projects.
  • You will also liaise with teams like Engineering, Safety & Procurement to deliver integrated solutions.
  • Improving the teams’ processes via internal projects.
  • Developing yourself – enhancing your confidence, communication skills, technical capability and team working.
  • You will gain a top level appreciation of aircraft development and an understanding of the decision making processes involved in complex aerospace industry projects.
  • You will have flexibility and ownership on tasks across a range of disciplines through the support of the Fuel Systems, Wing
  • Structure, and Landing Gear Chief Engineers.
  • You will work with a highly experienced team who will both pass on knowledge to you and will expect to listen and learn from your contributions and experiences.

About you! 

Please note, we love your interest in working for Airbus but we do ask that you make only one application. We encourage you to take time to decide which of our exciting opportunities is right for you and then submit an application that best represents you, your skills and experience in connection with the role you have selected. 

Our placements are open to Undergraduates only. Therefore it is mandatory for candidates to be an undergraduate for the whole duration of the placement. 

Successful candidates will be able to demonstrate the following; 

  • Working towards a degree in a relevant engineering discipline as an academic qualification for eventual membership of a professional engineering institution.
  • Familiar with Office like applications; Google Suite experience would be very beneficial.
  • Excellent written and spoken English with the ability to summarise complex issues and communicate clearly, both in verbal and written forms as well as in front of audiences.
  • An understanding of project management with the ability to prioritise tasks to ensure deadlines are met.
  • An empathetic person capable of building relationships, self-reflecting and listening.
  • Comfortable with taking the initiative and working with an open scope.
  • Prepared to travel between UK and European sites, if required.

What’s in it for you? 

By joining our team as an intern you will: 

  • Have the opportunity to work and collaborate with teams across different countries in Europe and worldwide. 
  • Be making a difference through being involved in transformation and change projects for the company. 
  • Improve your chances of a future role within Airbus while also benefiting your studies.
