Resource Planning Manager


Reference 9517 Closing date 27/5/2024 Brand British Airways Career area Head Office Location Waterside, British Airways Head Office, London

A career without limits

As the nation’s flag carrier, we take great pride in connecting Britain with the world and the world with Britain.

It’s something we’ve been doing for over 100 years, ever since we launched the world’s first international scheduled air service between London and Paris.

This originality has been in our blood since day one. It’s the spirit we share with the people that fly with us, our partners, and our colleagues.

So, whether you are a reassuring voice on the end of a phone, a smile at the door, under a wing keeping the turbines spinning or landing us gently in far-flung places, a job at British Airways is yours to make.

We know great things can happen when you’re inspired to think big and bring your ambition to work every day, which is why, at British Airways the sky is never the limit.

The role:

Resource Planning Manager 

This exciting role in the Operations Planning directorate is responsible for delivering robust resource plans for our Cabin Crew, Flight Crew and Heathrow business areas.

What you’ll do:

You will be responsible for developing and continually reviewing critical long and short term resource, recruitment and training plans to support the robust delivery of the operation. You will be accountable for the creation of robust resource plans for the business area(s) within your remit and where risks or challenges arise, you will highlight these and seek opportunities to mitigate against them.

You will work closely with key stakeholders in the business area(s) that you plan for, and your work will feed into the overall resource plan across the whole of Operations Planning.

This is a mid-level resource manager role that involves a good understanding of the financial plans for the business areas you look after, and a requirement to reconcile variances to forecasted spend.

If you are a logical thinker with an eye for detail and strong analytical skills, then you will find this role challenging and rewarding.

What you’ll bring to British Airways:

  • Excellent numeracy, analytical skills and the ability to present complex data in simple terms
  • Ability to identify underlying issues to business problems and continually look for ways to do things better
  • Ability to work with ambiguity, ever-changing demands and plan activities around conflicting priorities

Your experience:

  • Experience of resource planning, delivery and budgeting is desirable
  • Successful team/people management and development experience
  • Influencing and communicating confidently at all levels 

What we offer:

We believe that all the people who work with us should feel valued for the part they play. It’s one of the reasons our rewards go far beyond a competitive salary.

From the day you join us, you’ll get access to brilliant staff travel benefits including unlimited basic and premium standby tickets on British Airways flights. You’ll also receive up to 30 discounted ‘Hotline’ airfares per year for yourself, friends, and family.

At British Airways you’ll have the chance to take on new challenges and move forward in a way that feels right for you. We encourage all those who work for us to consider opportunities right across our business to help you develop and progress.

We never stand still, and we don’t expect our people to either.

Inclusion & Diversity

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.

Inclusion and diversity is a key driver of innovation and we’re committed to creating a culture where everyone feels that they can be themselves. We’re looking for people from all backgrounds and cultures to join us and be a part of our journey to become a Better BA as we continue to connect Britain with the world and the world with Britain.
