To stay on top, Airbus recognises the importance of supporting high-achieving and talented undergraduates. We do this through offering challenging internship opportunities during which your skills and potential are fully maximised.

Our internships give a unique insight into potential career paths within Airbus. They are designed so that you can put your theoretical knowledge into practice and gain crucial industry experience. The skills and knowledge you gain will improve your chances of a future role within the Airbus and should benefit your future studies.

Are you keen to join a team offering national / international travel and a chance to network with experts in cyber-related fields? Do you appreciate the potential benefits to your career of broad ranging exposure to cyber and business communities?

Crucially, we expect you to be ready to make the most of the professional mentoring and support offered from a well-established team in one of the world’s foremost companies. Airbus’ Cyber Security, Innovation and Scouting team is leading the way in security research and development. Our dynamic and diverse team is recruiting for a 1 year fixed term, full-time intern, to support existing activities in research and development of cybersecurity solutions.

Part of the corporate security office, the team provides support to all areas of the global Airbus business, across IT, manufacturing systems and product. You will be a part of a community of cybersecurity experts and researchers addressing existing and latest security challenges. 

Learning support from our experts will be provided. Here are some quotes from previous recruits:

  • “projects…cover the full spectrum of areas in cyber security.”

“ travel and attending conferences has been a great opportunity”

“access to key parts of the business makes a big difference”

Tasks and Accountabilities:

During this internship, the activities you may undertake will include;

  • During the term of your internship you will support and become an essential part of activities in scouting, research, solution development, system administration and testing. 
  • You will work with experienced team members across a variety of projects and topics, and contribute to technical analysis, discussions, reports, and demonstrations.
  • Whilst good understanding of cyber security/forensics is expected, many of the topics within the scope of research at Airbus are creative. Learning support from our experts will be provided.

Required skills:

Please note, we love your interest in working for Airbus but we do ask that you make only one application. We encourage you to take time to decide which of our exciting opportunities is right for you and then submit an application that best represents you, your skills and experience in connection with the role you have selected.

One application: Make It Possible, Make It Happen, Make It Count!

Please note our Internships are open to Undergraduates only. Therefore it is mandatory for candidates to be an undergraduate for the whole duration of the placement.

  • You want to develop knowledge in the fields of cyber security and digital forensics. We are looking for applicants who are enthusiastic about participating in an active research culture, ranging from solutions development and technical research, to facilitating improvements in cyber awareness, understanding and adoption.
  • An understanding of computer systems, networks, protocols, and infrastructure.
  • Good knowledge of cyber security or forensics issues, and familiar with recent events and developments in the area.

Any of the following attributes are also desirable:

  • Experience of penetration testing and associated tools.
