Operations Apprenticeship (Level 3)

At MBDA, Manufacturing consists of Assembly, Integration and Test of all our products for the company. The products we make are delivered directly to the customer/end user and therefore Manufacturing are vital to the delivery aspects of MBDAs business.

Integral to the build of each and every one of our range of products are our Operations directorate. They work with our Engineers and design specifications, in an open place environment with state of the art manufacturing facilities, to deliver on our commitment to our customers. They maintain the integrity of each and every one of our builds through the specialist work they do.

Our Operations Apprentices are the future of our Manufacturing facility.
