The recruitment drive is part of the company’s efforts to help address a growing skills gap in the U.K. cybersecurity sector, BAE Systems Detica said Wednesday.
Martin Sutherland, Detica’s managing director, said Detica is looking to add 600 new workers to its existing global workforce of more than 2,600 employees.
He added the company offers training and development programs for graduates in engineering, math, physics and information technology fields.
BAE Systems U.K. also plans to hire 49 graduates for its military aircraft segment, 37 graduates for its submarines unit and 23 graduates for its shipbuilding and services business.
The company spends $126 million annually on British education, academic partnerships and employee training through its Skills 2020 program.
