UK-based easyJet has relaunched its flagship graduate programme after a three year hiatus.
The programme, which aims to attract a diverse group of individuals with a desire for a career in engineering, finance or management, has taken 16 students for 2023 after a three year hiatus due to the pandemic, and is now calling for more applicants for 2024.
Names ‘Project Runway’, Graduates entering the Engineering programme were required to have an engineering degree. However, the Finance and Management programmes will be filled by applicants with a mixture of degrees including Modern Languages, Art History and Visual Culture with History and Modern History and Politics from the University of Exeter, Birmingham and Manchester respectively, just to name a few.
Jane Storm, Group People Director at easyJet said: “We are thrilled to be relaunching our Runway Management Programme and incorporating our Engineering & Finance programmes under the same initiative for final-year students from across the UK. This programme offers a comprehensive insight into the company, with the opportunity to learn more about customer experience from our front-line roles in cabin crew and pilots, as well as the diverse roles offered by the company.
“As well as getting a hands-on experience of different roles with the organisation, the students will also receive mentoring, coaching and training workshops – partnered with the chance to work across teams with senior stakeholders, giving them a true first-hand experience living the ‘orange spirit’ here at easyJet.”
The airline’s Runway Management Programme was established in September and along with the airline’s Engineering & Finance programme operates on annual basis. Applications for new candidates are now open and will be live until mid-end January 2024. More information about the programme can be found here.
