Lockhead Martin Looking at UK for 2,300 Aerospace Manufacturing Jobs


London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/28/2022 -- Lockhead Martin is one of the largest defence contractors in the world, employing around 100,000 people globally. It has now been revealed that the contractor is exploring a space in the UK that could potentially generate more than 2,000 aerospace manufacturing jobs. Specifically, Lockhead is looking at the North East of England, where it would make a £50 million investment if the move does go ahead. The UK and Europe regional director of the business has outlined how it is focused on helping to nurture growth in the UK, in particular when it comes to establishing it as one of the "most prosperous and capable space sectors in the world." There are many reasons why Lockhead Martin is looking at the North East of England, and why it is such a good prospect for this kind of investment. These include the strong manufacturing heritage in this part of England, as well as the reputation for quality output and the skilled nature of the local workforce.

The move by Lockhead Martin could generate many welcome manufacturing jobs in England's North East, something that DSJ Global is keen to see happen.

The team at DSJ Global said, "A pressure cooker year for the Supply Chain sector means 2022 could be unpredictable. One thing is for certain though, and that is the need for talent. Travel restrictions, delays on cargo flights and congested shipping lanes created a multitude of challenges that only the best of the best can solve, and therefore demand for top-tier Supply Chain talent is going nowhere.

The need for talent who have extensive experience in Strategic Procurement, Logistics and Supply Chain is huge. Such demand means companies are having to resort to extreme benefits packages and high compensation to attract the talent they attain for, and therefore having a talent partner to guide them through these difficult times is invaluable.

Travel restrictions, delays on cargo flights and congested shipping lanes may have been 2021's story, but much of last year's challenges are shaping this year. As Supply Chains continue to be under the world's spotlight, the need for top-tier talent is still a pressing issue."
