The first thing I noticed when I walked through the door of British Airways was how diverse the place was.

I'd always thought that I’m best suited to an operational environment so the job of Scheduler is me to a tee. It’s fast paced and mentally challenging – just what I wanted. I’m the only person doing my role so the workload can be pretty heavy, but it’s great being able to influence when our aircraft fly and where they fly to.

If you're thinking of joining British Airways, all I can say is – go for it! There are so many different roles and departments that there is something to suit so many ambitions. As for mine, I come under the Engineering umbrella; I’m developing a good understanding of our Engineering functions but I’ve still got a lot to learn. Becoming a Planning Engineer could be a possibility. Or perhaps I could follow my ultimate dream and join British Airways' Pilot scheme!
