100 new jobs go live at BAE’s Yorkshire digital engineering hub

The Hawk jet went out of production at Brough in 2020

BAE Systems has opened up 100 new jobs at its Brough site, including 50 senior engineering positions.

Brough, in East Yorkshire, is BAE Systems’ centre for digital engineering excellence, and supports the delivery of some of the world’s most advanced defence programmes including Tempest, a new era combat aircraft, and the Dreadnought submarine fleet.

The Brough campus has seen a major upgrade since it stopped manufacturing the Hawk fighter jet in 2020.

BAE said in a post on its website: “BAE Systems is ramping up recruitment at its site in Brough in response to increased demands to support vital defence programmes which will provide next-generation capability for the Royal Air Force and Royal Navy…Much of the work at Brough involves design, test and evaluation. It brings together new and novel digital engineering technologies such as synthetic modelling and model-based systems engineering. BAE Systems are recruiting around 100 engineers in design, mission systems, integration and software disciplines.”
