Aerospace & Defence

The aerospace and defence sector remains one of the most successful sectors in UK manufacturing, ranked number one in Europe and second only to the US globally with annual sales of around £22bn. With nearly 75% of output being exported, the industry also employs about 100,000 direct employees with an average wage £10,000 higher than the country’s median.

Companies are now facing a number of key issues including increased change, globalisation, smart acquisition and the increased need for skilled staff in all areas. The UK aerospace and defence sectors are experiencing the same lack of qualified staff as other advanced manufacturing and engineering businesses, however, while some sectors turn overseas for recruitment options, this is not always viable due to security clearance issues.

Recent years have demonstrated phenomenal growth for the industry with substantial increases in turnover, employment, R&D, and investment, plus new orders with latest forecasts predicting that over the next two decades, the world’s airlines will order twice as many aircraft as are flying today.

We recruit for Engineers, Managers and Directors (contract as well as permanent) within the following disciplines:

  • Design & Development
  • Systems Engineering
  • Simulation & FEA
  • Analysis, Test & Validation
  • Project & Programme Management
  • Manufacturing, Production & Assembly
  • Quality & Supplier Development
  • Supply Chain, Purchasing & Logistics
