Space Recruitment

Want to work in the Space sector?

The CBSbutler Space team is an award-winning industry leader in recruiting technical professionals for the Space sector.

Britain is  a major player in the global space sector, with the industry contributing roughly £9bn to the UK economy and British technology implemented in innumerable projects and systems.
Britain’s space industry has more than doubled its turnover over the past decade to £11.8bn a year and is “punching above its weight” in the international marketplace. 

Companies involved in the sector, manufacturing satellites, providing communications, broadcasting services and finding practical applications for data produced from space vehicles, have combined delivered an average annual growth of 8.8% turnover since 2000.

A part of the appeal of this sector is the breadth of opportunities, from building and operating spacecraft and ground stations to using satellites for navigation, communication and remote sensing. The industry is targeting an annual turnover of £40bn by 2030, and we here at CBSbutler predict a period of rapid growth ahead for the sector. 

Whether you're a Defence contractor looking for technical staff with the right levels of DBS & Security Clearance, or a candidate looking to work on the latest cutting edge Cyber Security programmes, our consultants can help guide you every step of the way.
