How to Apply

What do I need to apply?

You’ll need a minimum 2:2 Bachelor’s degree in a subject related to your chosen area – look out for details on preferred degrees when you start exploring our open roles.

You'll also need to be curious to learn, have great problem solving and analytical skills, and the confidence to find and implement new and better ways of working. 

We're an inclusive employer and we encourage people from a wide range of backgrounds to apply. Some roles at BAE Systems are subject to security and export control restrictions and your nationality or place of birth may limit the roles you can undertake. 

Application Process:

  • The process begins with an online application. 
  • If you're successful, we'll invite you to perform a virtual assessment which will include gamified assessment challenges and video questions. 
  • The next stage of the process is either a virtual or face-to-face interview. 

Our main recruitment window runs from the beginning of September, with roles open year round. We recommend applying as soon as possible as roles may close early.

Application tips

We want everyone to have the best chance of securing a place on our programmes. Here are some tips to help you give it your best: 

  • Have a good think about which opportunity or business area best matches your interests and skills. 
  • Keep your application clear and concise – we want to be able to easily see your strengths and achievements. 
  • Give full details of your degree modules, work experience and relevant final year projects – we want to see how the programme is right for you.
  • Be sure to check your spelling and make sure you fill in all the sections of the application!
