Do you have a passion for our business and a global mindset?  Are you curious and eager to learn and to share the experience with those around you at all levels?  Are you ready to move around the world as your career develops and feel you could be a future leader of our business?

If so, the Airbus International Graduate Programme (IGP) could be the perfect starting point for you.

The Airbus International Graduate Programme “IGP” is a two-year programme (28 months overall) including work experience in different divisions (Commercial Aircraft, Defence & Space and Helicopters) and countries where Airbus is based. This programme will foster your transversal skills:  several development modules to build on your self-awareness, communication skills and knowledge of key drivers of change in our business such as digitalisation, innovation and inclusion. You will receive and give continuous feedback throughout the programme. 

This is a unique opportunity to broaden your horizons and an ideal preparation for moving into positions – in either a managerial or specialist capacity – with a significant degree of responsibility

Tasks and Accountabilities:

AIRBUS IGP 2020 includes positions in different departments.

By applying to join the IGP you are first applying to the programme as a whole.

You will be asked to give us your preferences alongside the video interview stage of the selection process.

During the 2 years of the programme, you will be placed depending on the business needs, based on your profile. Your first job assignment will last for one year and the two following assignments will last about 8 months each, which will provide you with a great overview of Airbus. You will be given roles with real accountability in challenging job assignments and you will get to know what it is like to work on the ‘shop floor’.  All the positions are challenging and with real accountability, this will allow you to acquire a deep understanding of the business, gain exposure to people at all levels including senior management and build a network of contacts across the group.

You will experience new ways of learning through our Airbus Leadership University, where we create opportunities for all leaders and aspiring leaders to develop, connect and share, reflect and learn, innovate, and support a culture of collaboration and autonomy within the group and in our extended enterprise.

You will be assigned a personal mentor, who is at a senior level within the company and will be on hand to give you regular guidance, feedback and support for your job assignments.

Required Skills:

We’re looking for +5 degree graduates and applicants with initial professional work experience between 1 year and maximum of 3 years with a strong academic background in the following disciplines:

  • Engineering (Such as Mechanical, Aerospace, Structural, Electrical, Electronic, Software, Systems, Control, Power and Thermal Engineering or related categories).
  • Manufacturing (Manufacturing Engineering, Production Engineering, Industrial Engineering and/or related subjects)
  • Computer science / IT
  • Business Related Subjects such as finance, law, HR etc.

The ideal candidate has studied and/or worked for a minimum of 5 years in a country outside of Europe.

Fluency in English is essential whilst fluency in one additional language is an advantage.

Apart from that, we expect you to be completely flexible and mobile throughout the duration of the 2-year programme. If you are to go abroad for your rotation, you will be individually supported with mobility conditions to support you during your assignment.
