Situated in the north west of England, Lancashire is one of the country's most densely populated counties with almost 1.5 million residents. Home to the city of Preston, as well as bustling towns like Burnley and Blackpool, Lancashire has a significant presence within the Aviation and Aerospace sectors, which have plenty of permanent, temporary and contract positions available.
Employers who need to hire staff for Aviation-related roles are greatly assisted in Lancashire by recruitment agencies that specialise in finding the best professionals in Aviation and Aerospace. This supplements the presence of other agencies in the region that help employers fill Aviation vacancies, while also providing the same service for many other sectors.
Given its prominence as a leading location in the UK for Aviation jobs, it is perhaps unsurprising that Lancashire is a region that offers a variety of different vacancies in the sector as well as competitive salaries. Procurement Manager positions within the Aviation sector can yield salaries as high as £55,000, while Engineering Manager jobs in the sector offers salaries in excess of £30,000. As the region is home to employers who specialise in Aviation, it means experts in the field will find opportunities. An example of this is Hawk Mechanical Training Specialist jobs, which can pay as much as £80,000.
Lancashire has a major presence in the Aviation sector due to the fact that BAE Systems has some of its largest locations related to Aerospace in the county. Employing in excess of 36,000 people in the UK, BAE Systems, which is one of the largest defence contractors in the world, has bases in Warton and Samlesbury. Both of these are part of the Lancashire Enterprise Zone. GE Aviation Systems, which is a division of General Electric, also has a presence in Lancashire. The division itself is well represented given that half of its 10,000 employees work in the UK.
