We embrace the opportunities that working at BAE Systems brings. This goes beyond a fulfilling career. Together we use our platform and our potential to create positive change. Driven by our purpose, we’re committed to contributing to a brighter, better, and more secure tomorrow.
Investing in the communities that we live and work with is important to us. From working with armed forces charities, to inspiring young people to study STEM subjects, we come together to support programmes and people closely connected to our business.
Just like we're proud to have a positive impact on our customers, we're all proud to have an impact on our communities. Collectively we volunteer around 1,400 working days every year. It brings us together, offers new opportunities to develop and grow, and helps us make a difference to the world around us.
We value the relationships we have with the communities we live and work alongside. Last year we gave £1.7 million to community projects and we take an active role in programmes that deliver positive change to our local areas.
As a future-focused business we're committed to changing the world we live in for the better. Our target is to achieve net zero emissions by 2030, we're innovating new ways to develop on-site renewable electricity and setting ambitious targets for water consumption and waste generation.
STEM subjects open up a whole world of possibilities for young people and last year we invested £2.8 million in education initiatives. By volunteering on our outreach programme our team play a key role in reaching under-represented groups. Encouraging and inspiring the next generation of leaders and innovators to consider a career in STEM.
We want everyone here to feel valued and empowered to thrive. Who you are should never define what you can do. We believe when you bring together different people and different perspectives it inspires creativity and drives innovation. It helps us fulfil our purpose and it's integral to our culture. Everyone is heard and respected here.
If you’re curious, hungry for more responsibility, and prepared to step out of your comfort zone, there are endless opportunities to grow with us. At every stage of your career our first-class training, coaching and development programmes, role models and mentors will help you embrace your potential and take the next step.
Great work deserves benefits that go beyond your salary. Whether it's health, wellbeing, or financial security for you and your family – our flexible benefits help you focus on what's important to you.
