Graduate Defence Jobs Profile
Defence contractors are some of the largest contributors to the British economy and form a distinct sector away from the British Armed Forces. They provide much of the strategic technology and capabilities to defence forces as well as vehicles, aircraft and ships. British defence contractors alone such as BAE and MBDA employ over 100,000 people and achieve revenue of over £20 billion. The defence industry is currently growing steadily at around 3% p.a. Starting your defence graduate career with a private defence company can open up job opportunities all over the world, particularly in the United States to work with new technologies going into projects such as the F35 Lightning.
