Defence giant BAE Systems is to recruit 140 engineering and business apprentices in Cumbria over the course of the year, the company has announced.
They will join the firm’s submarine-building business in Barrow, with a further 100 at its shipbuilding sites in Portsmouth and Glasgow.
The company is building the Navy’s latest Astute Class nuclear submarines.
A spokesman said attracting suitable apprentices was vital in generating the company’s “workforce of the future”.
