Job Description

For the past 100 years, Boeing has been making the impossible, possible. From producing a single canvas-and-wood airplane to transforming how we fly over oceans and into the stars, Boeing has become the world's largest aerospace company. And we're just getting started; especially in the UK.

 

The partnership between Boeing and the UK dates back to the 1930’s and continues to get stronger and deeper, with UK jobs, skills and opportunities being constantly generated to support major UK programmes such as Apache, Chinook, C-17, P-8, ScanEagle, Support Chain Information Services, Government Services and Staffordshire Police, to mention a few.

 

Boeing has doubled its UK workforce in the last five years to more than 2,000 employees. This growth continues in 2017.  Join us, and you can build something better for yourself, for our customers and for the world.
