Work Experience

LHR 2018

LHR 2018 is our activity-packed, week-long work experience programme – running six times a year. Join us, and see first-hand how we run a multi-award winning airport, help over 210,000 people move through Heathrow each 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, and 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 plans to grow sustainably. Further to these exciting experiences, you will also receive top tips on how to build your CV and deliver a presentation on your experience at the end of the week.

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 as part of your application. We encourage you to spend some time building a strong application to maximise your chances of successfully gaining a place.

Our dates for the 2019 Work Experience are:

  • 18th – 22nd February 2019
  • 15th – 18th April 2019 (4 day session due to Bank Holiday)
