Growth in the industry means more job opportunities

Over the next few years the UK Aerospace Industry is expected to grow by 6.8%. If we analyse these figures in more detail, we can see that if the UK maintains its current market share, then air traffic growth in Asia alone could potentially contribute to £4.7 million more export business in the next 10 years. This is good news. It means an additional 20,000 job opportunities.

Fully compliant candidates

Candidates must have the required qualifications, certificates and licences, along with the appropriate security clearance before they can be considered for a role in the industry.
