Company Overview

BAE Systems Applied Intelligence helps nations, governments and businesses around the world defend themselves against cybercrime, reduce their risk in the connected world, comply with regulation, and transform their operations.

We do this using our unique set of solutions, systems, experience and processes – often collecting and analysing huge volumes of data.

We are obsessed about solving problems for our customers; we bring together great minds that face tough challenges on a daily basis, and are encouraged to make a difference.

• Producing progress reports, managing RAID items and escalating with the client and within the business as appropriate. This includes: identifying and monitoring project risks (threats and opportunities), planning and implementing mitigation plans, responding to other issues that affect projects;
