Hundreds of apprenticeship places for BAE in Barrow

BAE Systems has announced 272 apprenticeship places at the submarine yard in Barrow as part of a record intake for 2014.

In total, BAE Systems are offering 568 apprenticeship places across the UK, the highest intake since the company was formed.

The new recruits will join BAE in September 2014.

The increase is due to demand for hundreds of highly skilled submarine manufacturing employees to meet the largest workload for two decades at the shipyard in Barrow.

The yard is currently working on delivering the five remaining Astute class attack submarines and is recruiting to develop the new 'Successor' submarines which are due to replace the Vanguard class from 2028.

Nigel Whitehead, group managing director at BAE Systems said: “Our additional intake of apprentices this year reflects workload requirements at the submarines business but the number also demonstrates the fantastic contribution and value that apprenticeships bring to BAE Systems.

“Apprentices are a vital part of our talent pool and we find that our training programmes really help young people develop their full potential and become financially stable at a relatively young age. This is a win-win situation for our apprentices, our Company and the wider economy.”

Applications close on February 28, 2014.
