Do you want to work in the global space industry?
Space may seem to be, quite literally, very distant from your life. However, space is actually essential to modern living and everyday you will benefit from space technologies. Every time you catch a flight, or use your phone to get directions or check the weather… you are using space! And this critical industry is expected to expand at a rapid rate! The global space economy is projected to grow from an estimated £270 billion in 2019, to £490 billion in 2030. Working in the space industry means being involved with ground breaking technology which pushes the limits of what we know, improves our day-to-day lives, and saves lives.
And YOU can be a part of this amazing industry!
At Capital International we work placing the very best space engineers in exciting companies across Europe, the UK, and the USA. We love to work in an industry that has such an amazing positive impact on the world. We are always keen to hear from success driven people who are looking for a business to business sales career. Ideally we are looking for people with at least 12 months previous recruitment experience, preferably in a technical sector although this is not essential.
