Finance - Propel your development

When you join BA’s Finance team you’ll find numerous opportunities open up to you. Working with senior figures across the business you’ll inevitably raise your profile and make valuable professional contacts. You will learn about the dynamic Airline business and develop your Financial Expertise by analysing problems and influencing decisions. As well as this, BA’s ACCA Platinum Approved Employer Status and CIMA Development Partner Status gives members the reassurance that their annual CPD training has been achieved through their employment at BA. These relationships with ACCA and CIMA provide formal recognition that BA is committed to providing learning and development opportunities to its finance staff.

Laura, Finance Analyst – IT Delivery

My role includes budgeting and forecasting operational and capital costs as well as IT project appraisals.

I get the opportunity to work on business cases that cover a variety of departments within BA, such as, Property, Engineering, Operations and Cargo, ensuring that they make financial sense and are in the best interest of BA. It is very interesting to see how IT Delivery interlinks with so many different areas of the business and what a key role IT plays in keeping our planes flying.

Prior to working for BA, I was a Management Accountant for Hays Recruitment Agency, which involved looking after the accounts for the Construction & Property department. During this time I completed my CIMA qualification and was lucky enough to join BA and work with an exciting and friendly team.


The role encourages me to work with senior managers and support high profile business cases. It is a very challenging yet rewarding role with new, interesting, projects being discussed on a weekly basis (so my job never gets boring!)

This is my first role within BA, but I will shortly be moving over to a Finance Analyst role within Cargo. Having only been at BA for 14 months, this goes to show that there are lots of opportunities to gain experience in different areas of the airline.

My new role will give me the opportunity to work for one of the top ten leading cargo airlines and develop my skills in project management. The role will be very diverse and opens up opportunities to work with, and gain experience in Fleet and Networks as well as working on synergies between BA and Iberia.

I look forward to continuing my career with BA and hopefully gaining a variety of experience along the way!
