The rapid rise in the global market for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) for a diverse range of military, civil and commercial applications is being matched by demand for specialist engineers to design, develop and maintain fleets, according to engineering and manufacturing recruitment specialist Jonathan Lee Recruitment, which already sources a wide range of professionals for top-flight players in the market.

Peter Heap, senior recruitment consultant in the Aerospace and Defence division at Jonathan Lee Recruitment, explains: ‘Advances in smart technologies and a rapid rise in applications for UAVs has prompted a significant increase in demand for engineers to support the industry.

‘With roles ranging from maintenance technicians, pilots, operators, design engineers, systems engineers and software engineers, the industry is keen to recruit ex-Forces professionals with operational experience in hazardous environments, or anyone from a military or defence environment, who will have the life experience and skill-set needed for these demanding roles.

‘For the many HM Forces engineers entering civilian life and, indeed, anyone with an aerospace engineering background with an emphasis on technical compliance and safety, prospects in the UAV sector have never been better,’ concludes Heap.
