London City Airport is a great place to work, with hundreds of different jobs and roles. If you are over 16 years old, studying a transport or travel industry course and would like to learn more about an airport career our Work Experience Scheme could be for you.
London City Airport’s Work Experience Scheme runs 48 weeks a year. The week-long placements are offered to students aged over 16 studying a travel industry related course.
The Work Experience programme forms part of the Airport’s Section 106 Agreement with the London Borough of Newham. The Airport’s legal agreement with the council requires it to provide ‘one week Work Experience for a minimum of 40 residents of the London Borough of Newham and a minimum total of eight residents of the London Boroughs of Bexley, Barking and Dagenham, Greenwich and Tower Hamlets’. As such, it is necessary that we only offer placements to students within these five boroughs, and preference will be given to those students who show a real interest in the travel industry. Students must be able to provide photographic identification (Passport, provisional/full driving licence) in order to commence their placement.
During the week, students gain an insight into all aspects of the Airport’s business, working in a variety of departments including Airfield Operations, Business Development, Customer Service and Corporate Aviation.
Should you meet all of the requirements above and be interested in applying for the London City Airport Work Experience Programme, please complete and submit the online form here.
