Job Description

It’s an exciting time to be at British Airways. We’re celebrating our centenary year throughout 2019 – and making an unprecedented investment in new aircraft and every aspect of the customer experience.

If you’re made of the same qualities as us, you could soon be part of the next chapter of our story.  Together as one team, we’re connecting Britain with the world and the world to Britain like no one else.

A great opportunity to join the Engineering Supply Chain organisation.

In this role you will build relationships with our key suppliers through face to face meetings. You will negotiate solutions to problems working with the supplier and internal stakeholders: technical, financial and operational.

You will need to be able to develop and interpret data in order to measure supplier performance, be a confident communicator with the ability to articulate your views with suppliers and hold them accountable.

Commercial and contractual experience is an advantage but if you don’t have this experience then this role will be a great opportunity to learn these aspects of the business and gain an appreciation of how they make a huge difference to Engineering; operationally and financially.

Great journeys require first-class aircraft. That’s why we’ve our world class engineering function is so important to the British Airways customer experience. On our team, you get to work in unrivalled facilities on one of the most diverse fleets around: 300 aircraft from 747s (the 'queen of the skies') to new A320neos and A350s. Get ready to push your engineering skills to ensure our customers fly in the safest, most reliable aircraft in the skies.
