Defence company BAE Systems has announced its intentions to 293 graduates this year, with 130 of them to be placed in its cyber and security business, Detica.

The FTSE 100 listed firm said the recruitment drive is a necessary response to the threat presented by cyber-crime, which could cost the UK as much as £27 billion.

Martin Sutherland, Detica’s Managing Director, said: ‘We are recruiting IT, engineering, maths and physics graduates and offer an excellent training and development programme giving our recruits the chance to work on some of the most exciting and cutting edge IT challenges in the world.’

BAE’s recruitment bid follows recent reports that the UK must step up its output of science, engineering, technology and maths (STEM) graduates.
