What we can offer you

You would start on £17,500 per annum and subject to satisfactory performance will rise to £18,500 within 12 months.

In addition to your basic pay you may receive shift pay (as applicable) for working various shift patterns.  This could include early/late/night or day shifts of various durations, with shift pay ranging from zero up to £118.41 per week, dependant on the actual shift pattern worked.

As a permanent BA employee you will have a number of benefits:

When you have a fleet of long and short-haul planes like ours it means more challenges for you. Because it’ll be your responsibility to help our Aircraft Engineers maintain them.

Bring your attention to detail and take ownership of quality control to help maintain the highest standards of our operation delivering tools and parts from our stores to our Engineers servicing our aircraft.

No single shift is the same, and it involves multiple tasks on every shift. You would be meticulous and flexible, whilst being part of a small and friendly team.

We provide a multitude of career opportunities for people who are passionate about what they do.

  • If successful you will need to complete a medical and driving assessment to the required standard before joining us.

We are an equal opportunities employer who values the contribution everyone can make.
