We are committed to providing continuing professional development through accredited training, set out by professional institutes, such as IMechE, IET, Institute of Physics, and the Royal Aeronautical Society, as well as a series of development events for all new graduates who join us.

Areas within MBDA that recruit graduates

We look for graduates with ambition and drive, who are capable of delivering and working as part of a large team whilst equally becoming specialists in their own field and able to work independently.

Prior to joining you will be allocated a 'buddy' who will provide you with informal advice and guidance. You’ll attend a comprehensive 3-day induction event that explains the full scope of what we do, and allows you the opportunity to interact with your fellow new-starters. 

Throughout the duration of your programme a trained mentor will offer support and provide information about MBDA, helping you build your skills and plan your career development for the future. Together with significant on-the-job training you will also undertake a range of personal development activities promoting teamwork, communication, presentation and leadership skills.

We offer competitive salaries with regular reviews, a pension scheme, flexible benefits, and flexible ways of working.
