BAE graduates to work within cyber security

Published: Monday, 19 December 2016   Category: All Graduate Jobs News

Over one-third of graduates joining BAE Systems in 2017 will be working within its cyber security business, due to growing demand.

Out of the 235 new graduates hired by the company, 80 will be assigned to BAE’s Applied Intelligence business at sites in London, Guildford and Leeds next year.

The applied Business unit specialises in defending against digital crime, financial crime, fraud and cyber-attacks, all of which are in the news at the moment, following an attack on over 1 billion Yahoo accounts.

According to an online survey conducted by BAE Systems, 57% of businesses have experienced a cyber-attack in the last year, despite believing that they had the appropriate security measures in place to combat it.

Alongside the 80 graduates recruited to work in cyber security, 77 will be assigned to BAE’s Maritime businesses based in Scotland, Portsmouth and Barrow-in-Furness.

Whilst a further 54 will be recruited for the company’s Military Air and Information business in Lancashire, with those remaining spread across electronic systems, land systems, and the head office.

Pipeline of talented graduates

Ensuring there is a healthy pipeline of science, technology, engineering and maths talent is one of the businesses top priorities, and vital to the success of the company.

BAE Systems’ Nigel Whitehead, Group Managing Director, Programmes and Support, said: “All the graduates joining BAE Systems in 2017 will have unrivalled opportunities ahead of them, playing a crucial part in developing, building and supporting the cutting-edge products that will help safeguard national security for years to come.”

Each year BAE Systems invests around £90 million in a broad range of education and skills initiatives, from world class employee training programmes to a nationwide school’s roadshow run in partnership with the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy.
