Job Description

Workshop Mechanic

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.

The Fleet Support Facility (FSF) workshop specialise in metal and composite repairs on flying controls, engine D-ducts (thrust reversers), radomes, fairings & panels and numerous other aircraft components, both structural and non-structural. We have a wide range of workshop skills and capabilities, from anodising to welding and everything in between; we also have dedicated on-wing support teams that operate 24/7 to support British Airways and other customers.

An opportunity has arisen for a FSF Workshop Mechanic. As a key member of the FSF team you will be required to assist with planned and unplanned maintenance/ defect rectification tasks to the required standard. The role of the mechanic provides support to the team and individuals, carrying out tasks within the scope of any approvals held. Shift working may be required.

Great journeys require first-class aircraft. That’s why 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.

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