I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my Kickstart placement and am so pleased to currently be carrying out my apprenticeship within BAE Systems Munitions business. I have gained key experience in various aspects of our business which has helped me to make a far more informed decision about my future career.
Before joining BAE Systems, I knew that I wanted to work in the engineering sector but didn’t have much of an idea about what I specifically wanted to do. My Kickstart placement has allowed me to get a taste of what different careers in this field would be like, which I wouldn’t have been able to do without this scheme.

Evan, Munitions Apprentice
Despite joining the team during the global covid pandemic, it didn't hamper my progress and all the team were very welcoming and we were able to carry out my reviews and progress meetings easily through using modern technology!
I'm very much looking forward to what the future will hold for my career in engineering.
