Partnering Through Transition

Walking the Walk
Year over year, we are proud to be recognized as one of the top-rated employers for veterans. We are honored to offer an environment where veterans and reservists can contribute to doing mission-centered work.
From Camo to Corporate
Your sacrifices and accomplishments have given us the security and freedoms we all enjoy. They have given you skills and experiences valuable in the civilian job market. At BAE Systems, we help our customers to stay a step ahead when protecting people and national security, critical infrastructure and vital information.
These are some of the ways that your experience and our mission can come together to make a critical difference.
You understand the mission
You’ve spent your entire military career being assessed on whether you can complete the mission. On top of that, the guidance you received may not have always been clear, the conditions may have been less than ideal and you may have lacked equipment. And, yet — you persevered and succeeded.
A career with BAE Systems means continuing to support that mission to protect what matters most.
You have leadership and management experience
It’s likely that you were responsible for managing large teams. This means you have experience in coaching others to bring out their best, identifying training and development needs, setting objectives and managing performance. We prioritize career growth and career development and seek out individuals with the right skillset to foster those opportunities.
You are proactive and accountable
You look beyond just what the job description says you are expected to do. You internalize the sense of responsibility for the people, the property and the results entrusted to you.
Here, you’ll be a part of a company that’s part of its community, driven to improve our future, protect our freedom – and what matters.
You know how to be a teammate
As part of your military experience, you worked alongside other men and women in uniform to make big decisions, and accomplish goals. This required you to work together to assess potential risks, mitigate against adverse effects and implement the best course of action. At BAE Systems, you’ll work alongside top talent to achieve success as you build trust, camaraderie and a shared ambition with your teams to lead the world in defense technologies and national security services.
You are adaptable
The military lifestyle is the very definition of a “challenging work environment.” With short acclimation periods, you were expected to get up-to-speed quickly on the critical information needed to do your job.
Your ability to adapt alongside ever-evolving technologies, the needs of our customers, and state of our industry will help us provide a critical edge to those who protect us.
