Scramble for 1,000 BAe jobs
HUNDREDS of hopefuls attended a recruitment drive by aerospace giant BAE Systems following the creation of 1,000 jobs.
BAe Systems is currently touring the north west with a recruitment roadshow in a bid to fill the vacancies created as a result of the aerospace giant's expansion plans.
The roadshow stopped off at Burnley FC's Turf Moor and Blackburn Rovers' Ewood Park this week.
And by the end of the events hundreds of CVs had been handed in.
The bulk of new jobs will be at the Samlesbury and Warton sites.
