Resource Group in partnership with easyJet has created an exciting apprenticeship programme.

Since 1995 easyJet has become one of the best known brands in the UK, starting with just 2 aircraft in Luton Airport. With a phenomenal growth plan we stand today, just 17 years later with over 200 aircraft, operating across 30 countries with over 600 routes. We have continued to expand our presence across Europe; by focusing on the customer and with targeted growth plans for the business and leisure traveller, we are realising our vision to make travel easy and affordable.

This would not be possible without our people, who truly make the difference.

We are now looking for highly motivated and driven people to join our Apprenticeship Programme from November 2012 who have the enthusiasm to start a career within fixed wing commercial aircraft engineering.
