BAE Systems is looking for more than 400 skilled tradespeople to join their workforce as the Type 26 frigate programme gains momentum.

According to their website:

“For generations, we’ve been making history on the Clyde in Glasgow. Now you have the opportunity to help us write the next chapter. We have exciting roles for more than 400 skilled trades to help us build the Type 26 frigates for the Royal Navy. These will provide security for our country and allies for decades to come. Building such a complex ship requires exceptionally skilled trade labour.”

Manufacture of these new, highly capable ships is securing about 1,700 skilled shipbuilding jobs in Scotland and some 4,000 jobs throughout the supply chain across Britain until 2035. All told, naval shipbuilding supported 7,000 jobs in Scotland in 2019-20, this is now increasing with the Type 31s being built at Rosyth.
