Business with Team Heathrow
Business Work Experience
On average there are roughly 1,300 take-offs and landings every day at Heathrow, making it one of the busiest airports in the world. Not only that, but more than 76,000 are employed at Heathrow, so it comes as no surprise, that they need a whole load of people making sure things are running smoothly. In this virtual work experience programme, we’re going to take a look at how Heathrow runs as a business.
You’ll be able to take part in five live webinars, where you’ll learn about the business, from people in the business! You’ll take part in activities that test your customer service skills, encourage you to think about what career path is best for you and get you ready for the world of work.

What students say
“Thank you for taking the time to create this programme. The volunteers on the live sessions were all really nice and down to earth which was really good to hear proper experiences in this industry, without sugar coating or hiding anything. To the people who made this project brief and stuff for us: I really enjoyed it and I thought it was the perfect topic and it's nice to bring more awareness and knowledge of this subject to more people! Also all the videos were really nice on this programme. Very full of life and engaging!”
“Thank you for providing an opportunity for young people like me who had no previous exposure to the industry/ This programme has some great elements that differentiates itself from other work experience providers. The programme particularly focuses on ourselves: our confidence, our skills and what we want to do in the future rather than just the work opportunities available and how to get there. I've really enjoyed this programme and hope there would be more opportunities in this specific field”
“Thank you very much for this experience. This sector sounds fascinating and I will definitely explore more. During and after lockdown, my opportunities for work experience were completely erased. But thank to this wonderful virtual work experience, I am able to gather crucial experience to write down on my CV and personal statement. Thank you once again!”
