Few employment sectors can boast the cutting-edge science, advanced technology, and technical complexity offered by this exciting industry. Careers in space and satellite are some of the most intriguing and fascinating jobs to be found anywhere in the UK, and the field only employs a limited workforce of about 20,000 individuals.
The space industry is a highly technical field, and requires professionals with advanced qualifications and education. It is also a primarily science-based industry, and successful candidates will need a particularly strong background in physics. Post-graduate degrees are required for most roles, as is a fair amount of experience working with complex mechanical systems. Recruitment agencies frequently recruit for positions in software development, operations, and quality assurance.
The sector is traditionally a high paying one, and the compensation reflects the extensive training and qualifications required for the positions. It can also be a demanding profession, and in some positions the level of responsibility is enormous. Applicants will need to be efficient team workers, mathematically proficient, and meticulous. Most positions are full-time, but there are also a number of internship and part-time opportunities available.
We are a focussed, innovative team of experienced consultants, specialising in the high technology market. We don't dilute our efforts by working in other sectors and all of us have an engineering or science background. We understand our market and the careers it can offer bright, ambitious people.
