easyJet,  has announced today that recruitment for its 2019 Aeronautical Engineering Apprenticeship Programme will begin on 3rd June.

14 successful recruits will undertake 24 months of classroom and on the job training which will lead to a professionally recognised qualification in Aeronautical engineering.

The airline will hold two open evenings for prospective candidates to meet members of easyJet’s engineering team and training facilitators to learn more about the two-year apprenticeship programme. These will be held on Tuesday 4 June from 17:30 to 20:00 at Hilton hotel Gatwick and on Thursday 6 June from 17:30 to 20:00 at easyJet’s academy at London Luton Airport.

easyJet remains committed to supporting the future of a sustainable, innovation-led aviation industry by offering the opportunity for participants to put their passion into practice in an exciting live environment in which they will develop the skills needed to kickstart their career in aircraft engineering.

Aidan Kearney, Head of Maintenance Operations at easyJet said:  “I am delighted that our engineering apprenticeship scheme will be opening again. It provides a fantastic opportunity to gain a recognised qualification and start a career in the aviation industry. The scheme gives prospective engineers a springboard into a diverse choice of career path and locations. Many of the senior Engineering management team, in addition to myself, entered the industry as apprentices and I look forward to welcoming our newest recruits in the coming months.”

Katie Edney, easyJet Engineering apprentice, (2017 cohort), said: "The easyJet apprenticeship has been a fantastic way of meeting new people, gaining the skills and experience that is required within the aviation industry. The course is very well structured and you feel that everything you are learning is real and applicable to your future career.”

The easyJet Engineering Apprenticeship Programme is a two-year course consisting of a combination of classroom and practical training. The first 8 months of the programme will provide accredited training both in the classroom and practical training at LRTT at Humberside Airport. This is followed by sixteen months of on the job training which will take place with easyJet in both Luton and Gatwick.

At the end of the programme, apprentices will graduate with recognised qualifications and the experience and skills needed to accelerate their career. A permanent role at easyJet with a package of up to £30,000 is available to those who are successful, joining 230 easyJet engineers who maintain the airline's fleet of over 300 Airbus aircraft.

easyJet’s engineering apprenticeship scheme has been in place since 2012 and complements the airline's cabin crew apprenticeship scheme Operational control centre apprenticeship programme which both launched earlier this year. Successful candidates joined the airline to learn the different disciplines of the Operational control centre alongside earning a Level 3 Aviation Ground Operations Specialist qualification.
