BAE Systems Digital Intelligence
As the Engineering Lead for a large business unit in BAE Systems Digital Intelligence I am responsible for ensuring we have the right software engineering capability to meet our customer requirements.
Key for me is to build a diverse, engaged workforce which starts with how we recruit and develop junior software engineers. Over the last seven years we have adapted our recruitment and academy programmes to focus on finding talent with the aptitude and enthusiasm for the role rather than concentrating on paper qualifications. This has led to much improved gender balance in our junior workforce as well as greater diversity in many other ways.
