Engineering at Heathrow is unlike engineering at any other organisation. The sheer scale and scope of what our 700-strong team deliver is immense. From water to energy, rail to roads, our engineering team work across the airport on a huge range of exciting development, construction and maintenance projects across our £14bn asset base.

Our civil and structural assets range from 4 million square metres of airfield pavements to 180 kilometres of airside and landside roads. We maintain 50 tunnels, 31 bridges and 32 earth retaining structures, as well as a wide portfolio of buildings, including our terminals. We operate the largest private water distribution service in Europe and maintain assets unique to Heathrow, such as our automated transport ‘pods’.

As a growing business, we’re undergoing a transformation that will help us to achieve our vision of providing the best airport service in the world. As we grow, we strive to be more intelligent, innovative and at the forefront of engineering as we head up some of the UK’s largest infrastructure projects - And you could be a part of that journey.

Through our apprenticeship you’ll be shaping a career and gaining valuable on-the-job experience. The scheme offers the training, guidance and support you need to develop the skills you’ll need to establish yourself in your engineering career.

During our four-year apprenticeship, you’ll be joining the high-performing team responsible for maintaining the critical engineering infrastructure at Heathrow. You’ll develop a diverse skillset as you learn from experienced colleagues and build your technical expertise.

Across the programme we will invest in your continuous training and growth, supporting you to gain Engineering NVQs at levels 2 and 3, with the opportunity to complete further qualifications – up to and  including a Bachelor of Engineering degree.
