As one of the lead employers within the Movement to Work scheme, which aims to tackle youth unemployment by providing vocational training and work experience, we provide nearly 100 young people with work placements every year.
Rosie, now a production apprentice based in our Submarines business in Barrow-in-Furness, had struggled with previous job applications due to her dyslexia and number dyspraxia. After finding out about Movement to Work through her local job centre, she applied to join the programme. Speaking about her experience, Rosie says, “BAE Systems has given me a second chance to prove what I can do. I love my job and I'd recommend the scheme to anyone."
