Operating in an increasingly demanding competitive environment, Air France offers young talents a variety of rewarding assignments that immerse them in the very core of the group's business.
Living the Air France experience takes students into a formative environment that empowers them to build their career. Are you studying at an engineering or business school? Or at university or a specialised establishment?
At Air France, you can be sure to find a rewarding and formative career opportunity.
Air France offers you apprenticeship contracts as preparation for a professional qualification and thereby contributes to your future entry into the workforce.
Depending on your training, you could for example be trained as an aircraft mechanic, customer service agent or sales advisor, or in one of our support activities such as Marketing, Finance, Human Resources, Information Systems, etc.
Active in a wide variety of sectors, every year France hosts many students on work-study programmes, catering to a range of different learning paces and contract lengths (usually one or two years).
When their contract ends, job forums and workshops are held for these young individuals to support their search for employment.
- Enrolment in a work-study programme, from professional skills certificate level to baccalaureate plus 5 years' higher education
- Aged between 16 and 25 for apprenticeship contracts, 16 and 25 or jobseeker aged over 26 for professional development contracts. No age limit for the disabled.
We take a keen interest in ensuring you have a rich career. An internship is your opportunity to showcase your flair for teamwork and to make the most of your knowledge.
This is your chance to discover interesting assignments with daily challenges and many responsibilities.
Because they are an important step in an educational programme and allow you, as a student, to discover what it is like to work for a company, Air France provides every year:
- Internships lasting from 4 to 6 months (young students from business and engineering schools and universities)
- Long-term internships on gap years
These internships must be defined under an agreement drawn up between your educational establishment, Air France and you.
In 2019, 793 interns joined Air France on placements lasting between four and six months, primarily on gap years or end-of-course placements.
Every year, Air France is proud to support and guide work/study contract trainees wishing to take up a challenge and take their ideas further.
Promoting the entrepreneurial spirit of trainees on a work/study contract by supporting and guiding them in their project to start or take over a company is a commitment! Over the past three years, Air France has been taking part in the Altern’up intra-company competition organized by EDF. This year, the jury selected 4 Air France trainees on a work/study contract who were able to take part in Créativ Week, which aims to allow each participant to present their business creation initiative through a 1:30 min pitch after following a week-long ”business developer pass”-type certified training. Congratulations to Blanche who is through to the final. The winners will be announced on November 13, 2018.
