Delta Air Lines

For the last three years, Delta Air Lines has supported Young Enterprise through its sponsorship of both the London Trade Fair and the “Pursuit of Opportunity Award” at our Company Programme National Final. In addition, we partner together on an engaging “job shadow” day designed to demonstrate the wide range of career opportunities available at Delta and in the aviation industry.

“Delta is committed to helping young people achieve their full potential in education. Through the job shadows and career fairs that we support, we hope that Delta has inspired some students to consider aviation but that they also leave school with the skills and knowledge to be successful in their chosen career” – said Graham Farhall, Delta’s Regional Director, Finance EMEA

In addition, we partner together on an engaging “job shadow” day designed to demonstrate the wide range of career opportunities available at Delta and in the aviation industry.

During our job shadow masterclass at Heathrow airport, YE facilitators support Delta managers and employees to provide insight into their job roles and the industry. This allows students to understand how Delta operates as a business. Young people can ask in-depth questions of airport customer service, engineering and other staff about the nature of their jobs and how they progressed in their career.

Partnering with Delta has enabled Young Enterprise to continue delivering unique and practical programmes that help young people to become ‘work ready’.

Jenner, a student who participated in the job shadow masterclass said, “I have really stepped outside of my comfort zone and it has opened my eyes to the various possibilities within an airport. I am also inspired to work for Delta because of the opportunities and experiences available.”
