Engineering is the lifeblood of Heathrow. Our engineering teams work across the airport on a huge range of cutting-edge development, construction and maintenance projects. Together, they are responsible for £14bn worth of assets, including 4 million square metres of airfield pavements, 180km of airside and landside roads, 33 surface car parks, 50 tunnels and 31 bridges, not to mention the largest private water distribution system in Europe.
Join us, as one of our graduate engineers, and you will help develop these assets even further, as we continue to expand our airport and make our services more efficient, more intelligent and more innovative than ever before.
This is a two-year professional development programme, which prepares high-performing graduates for management roles within engineering and asset management. You will gain exposure to many aspects of our work, including airside and landside operations, water management, power generation, terminal operations and rail. There will be opportunities for you to get involved in highly significant projects and to work alongside and learn from experienced engineers.
Your professional development
Progressing along a comprehensive and defined training route, and receiving one-to-one coaching from mentors and sponsors, you will build up the knowledge, experience and leadership skills you need to succeed as a future leader at Heathrow. After you have completed the programme, our expectation is that you will go on to achieve Chartered Engineer status with us and, ideally, take a fast-track route into a managerial role.
What we’re looking for
To make it onto this programme, you need a genuine passion for engineering as well as at least a 2:1 BEng degree (or equivalent) in an electrical/electronics, civil or mechanical discipline. Excellent communication skills are very important. Above all, you must have a real drive to develop and improve, and the desire to continue learning about different areas of our business throughout the two-year programme and beyond.
Applications for our 2018 programme intake closed on Wednesday 6th December 2017. Applications for the 2019 intake will open this autumn.
