Working in the impressive and purpose built Aircraft Maintenance facility located on Cardiff International Airport, you’ll be an integral part of a team of Engineers, Technicians and Mechanics working on every section of the aircraft to keep them in perfect working order.  You will be provided with opportunities to develop your existing skills and knowledge whilst gaining invaluable new ones, setting you up for a bright future within BA Engineering Wales.

In return for keeping our fleet safe at the forefront of the sector you’ll receive great rewards and plenty of scope to develop your mechanical and engineering skills to progress your career.

At British Airways we all have a part to play in creating an inclusive place to work. Diverse representation among our people is really important to us and we recognise that all our colleagues are uniquely different and bring their own originality, creativity and identity to work.
