BAE
Systems

BAE
Systems is one of the world’s leading global defence, security and aerospace
companies. We work at the cutting edge of technology, creating more than 100
new inventions every year for customers in over 100 countries.

Maritime
Services

Join
us and help to define the future of global maritime defence capabilities. With
approximately 3,500 employees based at five UK locations and revenue of
£600million, we pride ourselves on employing the best professionals around and
offer significant opportunities for committed employees to learn and grow with
us.

From
our headquarters in Portsmouth, we are proud to support the Royal Navy in
global operations. BAE Systems Maritime Services delivers end-to-end support to
over 50 per cent of the Royal Navy's surface fleet. Our services include ship
upgrades, repairs, dockyard facilities management and provision of combat
systems training. We also develop and support the Royal Navy’s complex
equipment, such as radar, torpedoes and small boats.

With
our international programmes and core support to the Ministry of Defence, you
could find yourself working on the iconic Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft
carriers, Type 45 Destroyers, Type 23 Frigates, Type 26 Global Combat Ships,
Hunt Class Mine Countermeasure Vessels, Offshore Patrol Vessels, historic ships
and more. Our highly skilled teams design, develop, support and maintain a wide
range of complex equipment. This includes Spearfish, one of the most powerful
and capable wire guided torpedoes on the market. Currently undergoing a major
upgrade programme, Spearfish will soon benefit from further sophisticated
advances in its homing, warheads, tactical and fuelling systems, as well an
upgraded guidance link. Then there’s Artisan, the 3D radar that can identify a
target the size of a tennis ball, travelling at a speed of more than 2000 miles
an hour more than 25 kilometres away!

Join
us and the projects you’ll be involved in will form the backbone of the Royal
Navy for decades to come. You'll be part of something important; something you
can be proud of.

We
recognise that an inclusive and diverse workplace – where all employees feel
respected, valued and able to achieve their full potential – is vitally
important. Not only does it inspire creativity and collaboration, it’s good for
business. We celebrate our differences and believe our diverse skills,
abilities and perspectives strengthen our culture and our overall performance.

We
welcome applications from all suitably qualified people.

Please
be aware that many roles working for BAE Systems will be subject to both
security and export control restrictions. These restrictions mean that
factors including your nationality, any previous nationalities you have held,
and/or your place of birth may limit those roles that you can perform for the
organisation.

Due to the volume of
applications we receive, we sometimes close our vacancies early. It is
therefore advisable to apply as early as possible if you would like to be
considered for a role with BAE Systems.
