61 graduates to join BAE Systems' air business

BAE Systems military aircraft business is set to recruit 61 graduate positions for roles at Warton and Samlesbury in Lancashire.

BAE Systems Eurofighter TyphoonAndy Bloor, head of early careers at military air and information, said: “We are keen to invest in the future of the business and therefore it’s vital that we continue to recruit growing numbers of bright, motivated individuals.

“Their work will be complemented by an excellent training and development programme and the opportunity to work for one of the UK's most innovative and respected companies.”

Overall 287 graduates will be recruited by BAE Systems in the UK with approximately 120 joining BAE Systems Applied Intelligence (formerly BAE Systems Detica), which is headquartered in Guildford in Surrey and runs offices in London and Leeds. The recruitment drive means that the applied intelligence business will be well-placed to help clients deal with the global rise in digital criminality over the course of 2014, as fraud becomes increasingly cyber-enabled and it becomes impossible to look at cyber-crime in isolation.
