We are justifiably proud of our reputation as one of the safest airlines in the world. The availability, reliability, safety and performance of our fleet are all fundamental to the experience we offer customers. That’s why we have invested so much in our fleet. Great journeys require aircraft of an exemplary standard, maintained by Engineers like you who put pride, perseverance and perspiration into every job.

The challenges here are interesting and diverse, but it is a tough and time-pressured environment. Get ready to leave your comfort zone, and work on a variety of aircraft and projects you won’t find anywhere else. You’ll have the chance to break the mould and challenge the status quo through new and engaging ideas.

Looking to the future, you can also expect exceptional domestic and European career opportunities within British Airways, or our parent company, International Airlines Group (IAG).

The change within British Airways engineering is at the heart of our programme of investment. We’re on a journey, with strong momentum behind us. Now, we want you to lead from the front, taking ownership of your ideas in an environment where you matter to our reputation and customer experience.

Pre-Employment Checks

As a company our number one priority is to maintain the safety and security of our people and our customers. Pre-employment checks on all new joiners are essential. We have specific regulatory requirements that apply to these checks, as we are an aviation business.

These checks may seem quite complex and time consuming. But don’t worry, we’re here to guide and support you through the entire process. For airside roles we need to do a full five year pre-employment check, this includes education, ALL jobs, gaps and holidays of more than 28 days, along with documentary evidence. It is important that you provide us with accurate, and in-depth information. Discrepancies cause delay and may affect your start date.

You will also need to apply for a Criminal Records Check (CRC) also known as a Disclosure Baring Service Certificate (DBSC) and an overseas CRC if you have lived abroad in the last five years. If you already have an overseas criminal record certificate that is over 10 weeks old, it is valid if you have not returned to the country of issue to reside.

Typically, the CRC or DBSC will take two weeks to be issued, the overseas CRC will vary from country to country. The Pre-employment checks for airside will typically take around 16 weeks, the time will vary depending on the number of jobs, periods of education and gaps we have to check, and validate.

We will work with you, and our 3rd Party suppliers to make sure the process is as seamless as possible. Your help is vital, and much appreciated.
