Making an impactAs an apprentice there's a perception, you're not going to have that much of an impact, but that’s not the case here. 6 weeks after joining, I was asked to lead on a technical demonstration for the client and senior stakeholders.
Supportive EnvironmentI’ve developed not only as an engineer, but personally. My hard & soft skills have gone through the roof. I’m so much more confident, I’m delivering presentations in front of audiences I couldn’t have done a year ago. It’s such a supportive environment.
Learning and DevelopmentI joined straight from school. I'd always been interested in learning about how things work and how they were put together, and I enjoyed STEM. It’s a great company to work for, and I’ve made lots of good friends!

We want to help change the world we live in for the better – and that starts with our workplace. We're committed to building a truly diverse, inclusive, and equitable place to work. We actively promote a culture of respect so everyone can be free to be themselves. It empowers us to do our best work, it enables us to grow, and brings us together to find new and better ways to protect what really matters.
At BAE Systems everything we do is steered by three core values: Trusted, Innovative and bold. We all have a part to play in fulfilling our purpose and our values guide us towards that. They reflect who we are and who we aspire to be. They bind and connect our diverse minds. They guide our decisions and influence our culture. Together each one of us is committed to living these values, every day.
