The UK defence sector, with an annual turnover of over £20 billion and supporting 260,000 jobs, is vital to protecting our country from global dangers and safeguarding national economic prosperity. Across Land, Sea, Air, Space and Cyber the sector creates thousands of specialist and highly skilled jobs, in addition to creating billions in export income.
With a hugely diverse set of requirements, across a vast array of goods and services, the Ministry of Defence is Britain’s industry’s largest customer, buying everything from office equipment to education services and all kinds of facilities management services as well as military equipment and supplies of all kinds.
