We’ve just embarked on two of the biggest engineering projects in the world. Join us and make history.
Maritime Submarines
Maritime – Submarines is contracted to work on some of the biggest and most ambitious engineering projects in the world. You could join more than 7,000 people across several UK sites, as part of a team that’s proud to have designed and built every submarine currently in service with the UK Royal Navy.

As the prime contractor for the UK Royal Navy’s Astute Class nuclear submarine programme, we’re responsible for developing seven submarines packed full of cutting-edge, state-of-the-art technology, including a complex combat system using world leading sensors designed to work in the complex underwater environment. You could contribute to the navy’s largest and most powerful fleet of submarines yet.

We’re working together with our partners to design the next submarine platform to carry the UK’s nuclear deterrent – it’s known as the Successor programme. Do you have the skills to turn the concept into reality?

In short, if you have both potential and dedication, you could soon be helping us deliver some of the world’s most innovative engineering technologies.

The main attraction of Submarines I believe is the good career prospects for every individual no matter what field you are interested in. Also when you consider that what you are contributing towards i.e. the defence and well-being of this country, the sense of personal achievement each person employed by BAE Systems feels is great.
