BAE Systems is searching for the next generation of engineers, as it kick-starts its apprentice and graduate recruitment campaigns for 2011.
The company is recruiting over 30 apprentices and eight graduates to join its training schemes at its facility at Portsmouth Naval Base.
Mick Ord, managing director at BAE Systems’ Surface Ships division, said: ‘Our apprentices and graduates play a major role in our business and by investing in their training and development we are safeguarding the knowledge and skills, which we need to remain innovative and maintain our engineering expertise.
‘Anyone joining our training programmes can look forward to an exciting and rewarding career, developing and delivering some of the most advanced warships ever built for our armed forces and other navies around the world.’
The new recruits will play a pivotal role in the design, build and support of some of the most complex warship programmes, including the Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers, the Royal Navy’s Type 45 destroyers and the new Type 26 Global Combat Ship.
The business is recruiting both craft and engineering technician apprentices, as well as graduates who will specialise in areas such as engineering, supply chain and operations.
