The only way BAE Systems DI grows is by having people who are constantly progressing. Our Consulting Development Framework supports what is expected of our consultants, and all competencies are designed to support performance and career development. This framework enables our people to make informed decisions about their strengths, development areas and the type of work and roles that will enable them to build their career successfully. This information leads to a sense of autonomy, which is critical to the progression of our consultants. If you currently have process mapping or business change skills, and aspire to gain experience and expertise in digital transformation and strategy development, we will support you in realising your career aspirations.
