Lean Manufacturing

Being a member of the Lean Manufacturing team has allowed me to gain knowledge of many of the different products Airbus has to offer, including the A320 Family, A380 and the new A350 XWB.

My day to day goal is the search for and elimination of waste to improve business performance. This is achieved through effective project & stakeholder management and by liaising with internal customers and external suppliers.

The Graduate Programme offers an abundance of support with the flexibility to be independent. Having the opportunity to spend time with different departments, businesses and countries has allowed me to gain valuable knowledge about Airbus as a whole and its value chain. Levels of training include Charterships, Cultural Awareness and Leadership. All the Graduates participated in a 7 day outward bound course in the Peak District that tested our resolve and ability to overcome challenges.
