1 - 6 November 2022

Submarines Academy for Skills and Knowledge, Buccleuch Dock Road, Barrow

Across three days in early November, the Submarines business will open the doors of its £25m Submarines Academy for Skills and Knowledge to potential employees.
The business is particularly keen to hear from qualified tradespeople, including welders, caulkers, steelworkers, pipefitters, mechanical fitters and machinists. If successful, there is an opportunity for people to leave the events with an offer of employment and the chance to deliver some of the world's most advanced submarines for the Royal Navy. This year, BAE Systems Submarines is planning to recruit approximately 1,200 new employees, including more than 100 new tradespeople.
The open events will take place on:
  • Tuesday 1st November 16.00 - 21.00

  • Wednesday 2nd November 16.00 - 21.00

  • Sunday 6th November 10.00 - 15.00

During the events, visitors be shown a presentation of the roles available and assessed for their suitability, with the opportunity for successful candidates to walk away with a statement of intent to employ them, subject to checks.

Access to the Submarines Academy for Skills and Knowledge is via Buccleuch Dock Road, on Barrow Island.

There is no need to book. Attendees must bring with them:
  • Valid photo identification, such as a passport or driving licence
  • CV and trade or apprenticeship certificates
Anyone who fails to bring ID will be unable to access the event. 
This is a really exciting time to join our business, as we continue work to deliver the Astute, Dreadnought and SSNR programmes for the Royal Navy. Barrow has been the proud home of UK submarine building for more than 100 years and now is the time for you to play your part in our future. This is a great opportunity to learn more about the fantastic career opportunities available, so I'd urge anyone interested to come along and find out more.
