Employer: Vertical Aerospace
Vertical Aerospace are a manufacturing company based in the UK, dedicated to designing and building vertical take off and landing aircraft that are electric-powered and hence zero emission in use.
Over the next few years the company aims to launch a flying taxi service: they aim to be the first zero-emission aircraft most people fly on. Between skyscrapers in New York, perhaps – their partners include American Airlines, Rolls-Royce, Microsoft, and aircraft leasing business Avalon. They hope their vehicles will be affordable, and they they’ll ease road traffic in densely populated areas. Similar vehicles might be used to help in disaster relief situations, transporting medicines, food or casualties.
To design, develop and make aircraft requires a lot of different STEM, and non-STEM based roles. Vertical Aerospace employ:
- Aerodynamics engineers
- Quality engineers
- IT administrative coordinators
- Battery test technicians
- Aeroacoustic engineers
- Technology Services Managers
- IT solutions architects
Although based in the Bristol, Vertical Aerospace is a global company, so there could be opportunities to travel.
