Internship opportunities in Heathrow’s IT team

Heathrow is not just a world-class airport but also a place where you can build a world-class career. It takes more than 76,000 people working in thousands of different roles and for hundreds of different companies to welcome the 80 million+ passengers who pass through here every year. Dynamic, diverse and forward thinking, it’s like a small city full of opportunities.

Heathrow brings people closer. Wonderers, keep wondering.

For over 70 years, Heathrow has been bringing people closer to each other. This summer, we celebrate people's desire to discover with our 'Wonderers' film, capturing those unique and special moments of closeness within Heathrow.

From Flight Information Display Screens to our digital workplace programme, IT is essential to the day-to-day life of Heathrow. An IT internship gives you unique exposure to many different aspects of our work, whether you’re contributing to a project that calls for creative skills or protecting the airport as part of our cyber security team. Along the way, there will plenty of opportunities for you to work with partners in other functions and build your skills within IT.

Starting in early October 2020 and lasting between 10 and 12 months, this opportunity is ideal as either a university placement or a first role for a graduate looking to see their career take off. Whatever your background, we’ll help you get off to a flying start, through a structured learning programme, ongoing mentorship and support, and lots of exposure to experienced managers and colleagues.

And when you reach the end of your programme, the opportunities will just be beginning. There are a huge range of career paths open for you in our business, including the chance to progress onto one of our Future Leaders programmes or to secure a permanent role within your function.

Do you have excellent attention to detail and a forward-thinking approach? Can you spot things that could go wrong before they do? Would you like to experience life at the forefront of a dynamic, ever-changing industry? Then our IT internship could be just what you’re looking for!

We also have internship opportunities in Airside & Airport Operations Centre, Baggage, Commercial, Communications, Expansion, People and more.
