New aerospace partnership could lead to graduate engineer jobs in the sector

People looking for graduate engineer jobs may wish to search in the aerospace industry, as it is set to receive a boost from a new government-supported group.

The Aerospace Growth Partnership - which is joint-led by Mark Prisk, minister for business and enterprise and Marcus Bryson, chief executive of GKN Aerospace - met for the first time yesterday (March 9th).

Some members of the partnership - which was set up to address the United Kingdom's competitiveness in this field - include BAE Systems, Rolls Royce and Airbus.

Mr Bryson, who also holds a position as chair of ADS's Civil Air Transport Board, a trade association for the sector, said the potential for growth in the aerospace industry is huge.

"If the UK is able to maintain its current global market share then aerospace will generate £352 billion over the next 20 years," he said.

"However, we cannot take this for granted, as other nations are also seeking to expand their own aerospace industries."

The UK aerospace industry currently has an annual turnover of £22.2 billion.
