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.

By joining Airbus as a Service Development Intern you will work with colleagues from other functions across Airbus Secure Communications, part of the Airbus Defence and Space family, including Finance, Commercial and Sales with the objective of supporting the department to fulfil its management reporting and data analysis obligations.  You will have the opportunity to scope the requirement so that you can implement your academic learnings into a commercial context.

As one of the world’s leading providers of managed secure communications, we manage our customers’ time- and mission-critical communications whether they’re land, airborne or naval. In short, everything we do is to enable them to accomplish their goals.

We are world leaders in providing global fixed and mobile secure communication services to governments, militaries and security forces. Indeed, as the world’s number one private-sector military secure communications provider, we deliver the flexibility, resiliency and security required by demanding governments and militaries.

As a truly global organisation, we understand local markets, allowing us to support our customers wherever they are. With regional strategic sales and support services in Europe, the Americas, the Middle East, Africa and Asia Pacific, our presence on the ground where our customers need us most is bolstered by our global reach.
