                                        Combat Systems

                                        We design, develop, integrate and provide through-life support to naval combat systems that enable navies to protect nations. Vital information from ship sensors such as radar and sonar, are captured through our core product, the Combat Management System. This advanced technological capability allows ships crews to rapidly respond to potentially life-threatening situations.

                                        In using this cutting-edge technology, we are at the forefront of defence system integration. Our products feature across the Royal Navy’s surface fleet aboard Type 23 frigates, Type 45 destroyers and Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers. The new Type 26 Global Combat Ships, under construction by BAE Systems in Glasgow, will also use the next generation of our combat systems.

                                        We pride ourselves on being the combat systems integrator of choice, not only integrating our own products, but those of other defence companies too in delivering combat systems for both the Royal Navy and international customers.

                                        We offer significant opportunities for committed employees to learn and develop with us. The health and well-being of our employees matters to us and that’s why we offer the flexibility for you to do what’s important to you, whether that’s job sharing, home working, or simply the ability to flex your start and stop times. Where practical, we’ll support a working pattern that suits your lifestyle and helps you reach your full potential.

                                        We recognise that an inclusive and diverse workplace – where all employees feel respected, valued and able to achieve their full potential – is vitally important. Not only does it inspire creativity and collaboration, it’s good for business. We celebrate our differences and believe our diverse skills, abilities and perspectives strengthen our culture and our overall performance.

                                        We welcome applications from all suitably qualified people.

                                        Please be aware that many roles working for BAE Systems will be subject to both security and export control restrictions. These restrictions mean that factors including your nationality, any previous nationalities you have held, and/or your place of birth may limit those roles that you can perform for the organisation.

                                        Due to the volume of applications we receive, we sometimes close our vacancies early. It is therefore advisable to apply as early as possible if you would like to be considered for a role with BAE Systems.
