Airbus Defence and Space

Your journey starts here

What you’ve read so far is just the beginning – a brief outline of our work and the many and varied benefits we bring to Earth by harnessing the endless possibilities of space. Now it’s time for your journey to really begin.

Applying to our Engineering Apprenticeship Scheme is simple. As long as you’ve gained or expect to gain five GCSEs (or equivalent) at grade A–C (including Maths and English, plus a science subject), you’re eligible to apply.

If you’re interested in joining us, email: with your CV and covering letter outlining your reasons for your application.

Assessment centres are held during the summer, and our scheme begins in September.

We will look forward to receiving your CV – and, hopefully, to developing your expertise alongside ours.


Airbus Defence and Space is not only committed to harnessing the benefits of space for all, but also to offering equal opportunities to all.
