Our Business Development graduates and undergraduates work in a team identifying, developing and winning new business.

As a business develop graduate/ undergraduate you will be involved in sales and marketing as well as aspects of offset, customer relations, bid / proposal production, customer and market analysis, events and exhibitions.

The products created by BAE Systems speak for themselves, however in this industry contracts can take years to materialise, require senior political influence and can be affected by countries' foreign policies. As a result, stakeholder management and building customer relationships through professionalism and hard work are key parts of our ethos and only when these factors are aligned can success be achieved.

Our Customers are key to the success of our business. We ensure our international customers are at the forefront of what we do. Our talented teams are responsible for defining and owning country and regional strategies and identifying routes to market for our products and services.

This role is available within our Air business where we are actively pursuing Export campaigns for Eurofighter Typhoon aircraft, Hawk aircraft plus other campaigns involving our Training, Unmanned Aircraft activities and Defence Information Services. In this key role you will predominately be based at our Warton site in the North West of England, however occasional travel to other UK based sites may be required.

Apply your talent where it counts.
