British Airways have some exciting new apprenticeship opportunities to join their Project Management Team.

Keeping our position as a world leading airline depends on constantly being able to take our business forward. And, with an organisation as big as ours, it takes a lot of projects and work programmes to make that happen. So, on our Project Management apprenticeship you'll be right at the forefront of our growth, working with different areas, learning about every aspect of our business and helping to deliver the vital projects that drive our success.

Working on a variety of projects from beginning to end, you'll be supporting project managers with everything from communicating with stakeholders to gathering project information and keeping relevant documents up-to-date. With the confidence to communicate with and influence people across the business, you'll be a valuable member of the project team, helping to plan, organise and deliver solutions successfully. At the same time, you'll have all the support and training you need to enable you to gain a recognised qualification. Not to mention the kind of benefits and rewards you'd expect from a world leading organisation.
