  • UK
  • This position has been filled.

BAE Systems

We want to inspire young people from all walks of life to pursue STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) subjects and careers. We’ll need your energy, skills and talent to help us develop next-generation ideas, deliver our complex projects and stay ahead of our competition.

About the event

Our apprenticeship insight event will introduce you to the exciting world of craft engineering; providing you with the opportunity to learn more about our company, gain hands on experience and visit our sites. You’ll also get to meet our current craft engineering apprentices, who will provide insights into their role and share their experience.
Taking place over 4 days throughout January & February 2022, places on the programme are limited. The Women in Craft Engineering programme is aimed primarily at female candidates seeking insight into a career in a Craft/Workshop environment. All applications will be reviewed, and you will receive an outcome decision via email by 17 December 2021.
Following the insight experience, you could be offered a full time position on our Advanced Craft Engineering Apprenticeship, starting in autumn 2022.

About Craft Engineering

Our Craft Engineers work in manufacturing environments using tools and machinery to safely carry out a range of tasks on complex products like submarines, surface naval ships, munitions, or aircraft.
We have many different trade disciplines to choose from including fabricator, welder, mechanical fitter, electrician, sheet metal worker, pipeworker, aircraft fitter and machinists.

If I was then offered an Apprenticeship, what would this involve?

Our Craft Engineering apprenticeships generally take three and a half years to complete. You’ll usually spend the first year in full-time training; learning core skills, before moving into a site placement within a specialist engineering team.
