the opportunities in aerospace

Careers in Aerospace is the exciting, not-for-profit careers initiative from the partnership of The Royal Aeronautical Society and ADS Group. The website aims to provide impartial information, advice and guidance (IAG) on aerospace, aviation and defence career pathways and entry routes and also contains valuable resources for job seekers including CV and Skills advice, company listings for your job search as well as information about competitions, scholarships, vacancy news and relevant events.

Aerospace and aviation are some of the most diverse industries when it comes to career opportunities. Whatever your talents, there could be something for you: whether you are into design, knowing how things work and finding ways to improve them; if you are practically minded and hands-on; or you have a passion for business or policy-making - we believe that in aerospace, there really is something for everyone!

Whether you're at school, college or university or a teacher/parent/careers advisor you'll be able to find out about every opportunity to be part of this exciting industry.  We have everything you'll need to know.
