Careers Conferences

The UK Space Industry has an annual turnover of £11bn and employs close to 35,000 people. It is a very healthy sector with projected growth to £14bn by 2020. In order to meet this growth target the industry needs young people to choose science and engineering options and decide to work in this area. The variety of jobs available within the space industry is vast and many companies work on international projects highlighting the importance of collaboration.

The National Space Academy organises a number of careers events focused on the UK Space Industry throughout the year to showcase the companies, institutions and careers pathways available to young people.

Information about the companies who have presented at our careers events in the past can be found on the industry links page.
