MAI Apprenticeship Opportunities

Military Air & Information

A career with our Military Air & Information business puts you at the very heart of the industry. Designing, building and maintaining world leading combat aircraft working with the latest in cutting edge technology and supporting not just the UK Royal Air Force but our global customers too.

You could join our 13,000-strong workforce doing anything from coding the software which makes our jets fly or designing the next generation of aircraft, through to making sure our programmes run on time and to budget.
Whatever route you choose, you will be earning while you learn and following in the footsteps of thousands who have been apprentices with us, many of whom now take seats around the boardroom table at the top of our business.
The most rewarding aspect of my role is seeing the work and overall projects that I am involved with. Sometimes I wonder how the work I am doing contributes to a project and then I go and visit the aircraft, or see the technology in action and think wow, I am contributing to make this happen.
