Preferably, you will also have direct experience of technologies applicable to emerging and future low emission vehicles, including cryogenic fuel storage and distribution. It is acknowledged that this experience could come from a different industrial sector.

Educated to degree level or equivalent in a relevant engineering discipline.

You are able to generate creative solutions to complex problems.

You are equally comfortable leading tasks or working as part of a team.

You have the ability to listen, understand and communicate information.

Many of our staff work flexibly in many different ways, including part-time. Please talk to us at interview about the flexibility you need. We cannot promise to give you exactly what you want, but we do promise not to judge you for asking.

Airbus is committed to achieving workforce diversity and creating an inclusive working environment. We welcome all applications irrespective of social and cultural background, age, gender, disability, sexual orientation or religious belief.

We value the strength that diverse perspectives bring to our business, so if you require any reasonable adjustments to fully participate in the recruitment process please discuss this with the recruiter who contacts you.

“I’ve worked for Airbus UK for the last 17 years and it has been a great company to progress in as a female engineer.

I have enjoyed regular travel to our Europeansites and liaised with engineers from all around the world. More recently I even got chance to work as a volunteer for Airbus Charity in India building schools for under privileged children.

I’ve held various engineering positions throughout my time but have always been able to adapt the roles to support my career and life as a mother -

I have worked both part-time and flexibly around early school years regularly working from home to maintain that important work life balance and now I manage a small team of structural engineers building mathematical models of aircraft wings for all the airbus fleet!”
