LHR 2018 is our activity-packed, week-long work experience programme. Join us, and see first-hand how we run our multi-award winning airport, help over 200,000 people move through the airport every day, and keep the UK economy growing.

During your week with us, we will give you the opportunity to take part in a wide range of activities that will help you gain an insight into how we operate one of the world’s busiest airports. You’ll have the chance to meet representatives from across Heathrow, from our security and baggage colleagues, to our engineers and customer service teams. You will tour our landside and airside operations, hear from the Heathrow fire service and our partners from the Metropolitan Police. You will also spend time learning about our corporate functions, with workshops covering Heathrow’s commercial model and our expansion plans. Further to these exciting experiences, you will also receive top tips on how to build your CV and have the chance to deliver a presentation on your experience at the end of the week.

Across 2018 we will be offering our work experience programme on the following dates:

  • 12th - 16th February
  • 3rd - 6th April
  • 29th May - 1st June
  • 9th - 13th July
  • 30th July - 3rd August
  • 22nd - 26th October

We only have a limited number of places for each week, so we are looking for applications from the most ambitious and enthusiastic students who are currently studying in years 10 to 13. Applications for the programme will open one month before the listed start date, with an ‘Apply Now’ button appearing on this page. You will be required to submit your CV with a covering letter and we encourage you to spend some time building a strong application to maximise your chances of successfully gaining a place.
