"Flying with the Royal Saudi Air Force is a great experience, offering a new challenge to work through each day. Although the pilot stream offers limited opportunities for immediate progression, those that have changed streams have done extremely well, most now occupying senior managerial positions here in Kingdom. The Company has provided an excellent vessel and the required support for them to branch out and utilise their skills.
When you throw in the attractive remuneration package and wonderful travel opportunities, this place is definitely a two thumbs up, I'd recommend it to anyone.
I have been with BAE Systems Saudi Arabia for over 10 years now, which is testament to how well my family and I settled into living in KSA. Apart from an initial settling in period and adjusting to life after military, the Company has been fantastic to work for. Living and working in Saudi Arabia is a great experience. My wife and kids love it here and apart from some of the cultural restrictions, we live a completely normal life - in many ways it's better than we had back home. The compound lifestyle is very colourful and the facilities are second to none. When you throw in the attractive remuneration package and wonderful travel opportunities, this place is definitely a two thumbs up, I'd recommend it to anyone."
I originally joined BAE Systems within the Employee Support Team and then was part of the Data Management & Business Information Team for a year before joining in the Organization Development & Learning Department in 2017. The working environment within BAE Systems is highly professional, the health & safety of employees is taken exceptionally seriously and employees are challenged in a way that provides new opportunities for professional growth."
"I joined BAE Systems Saudi Arabia in 2008 after almost 10 years of working mainly in the Commercial Airline sector in Saudi Arabia.

Business Services Manager
"I Graduated University in 1997 and returned to Saudi Arabia in an HR administrator role; having previously spent 4 years in Riyadh 1990 – 1994 as a Support Specialist in the accommodation/facilities team. I spent 4 years in Dhahran and was exposed to all specialties within the HR Function; spending the majority of my time working within Organisation Management and Employee Relations. In 2001 I returned to UK, my first Managerial role, to run the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia Resourcing team. This was my dream job and I stayed in post for 12 years.
I would have no hesitation in recommending BAE Systems to any individual who is looking to forge a career for themselves in their respective area of expertise.
Mick, Business Services Manager
Without doubt the happiest time of my BAE Systems Career, working with a great individuals, who came together to deliver as a team. I was then offered a generic HR Operational Management role at RAF Coningsby/RAF Marham working within the Maintenance function, which provided me greater exposure to the UK Aerospace Resourcing Arena. In 2015 I was offered the opportunity to return to Saudi Arabia, within Technical Training Studies at Dhahran, which I was happy to accept as I had always wanted to finish my BAE Systems Career here in Saudi Arabia. Several appointments later I now find myself in Tabuk as Business Services Manager, a very different role to those that I have previously occupied, but the diversity is exposing me to new challenges that I am thoroughly enjoying.
BAE Systems have been a great Company to work for and has afforded me the opportunity to fulfil my potential, both in UK and Saudi Arabia. I would have no hesitation in recommending BAE Systems to any individual who is looking to forge a career for themselves in their respective area of expertise."
