“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!”
