Graduate jobs in science, engineering and IT could be created by space growth

Published: Tuesday, 16 February 2010   Category: All Graduate job news

University leavers looking for graduate jobs in science, engineering and IT may be interested to hear that the Space Innovation and Growth Strategy forecasts that growth in the global space market could lead to the creation of 100,000 UK vacancies.

The report showed that the market would be worth over £400 billion in 2030, while recent research also found that employment in the UK's technology workforce has continued to increase despite the economic downturn.

At the moment the IT & Telecoms professional workforce currently stands at over 1.1 million people, but Richard Peckham, chairman of UKspace, believes that growth in the space industry could lead to even more jobs being created.

Mr Peckham said there would be jobs in a number of areas "for instance, direct to home broadcasting, GPS communications, building satnav and things like this".

He added: "So a lot of the jobs are really based within the electronics, software and IT industry."
