Zoe's Experience

Zoe completed a BAE Systems industrial placement in 2019, before progressing to a software engineering role on the graduate programme.

On placement, I was able to work alongside those who are doing meaningful work and was seen as a peer. It gave me hands on experience in the industry, with experts supporting and teaching me along the way. For those who are considering applying, I would absolutely recommend doing so. BAE Systems has some of the best experts in the field – allowing you to learn from the best and become the best!
