About Project Selborne

Project Selborne is a wide scale, 12 year transformation of Royal Navy Training.  The contract worth GBP 1 billion was awarded in December 2020 to a consortium led by Capita to deliver and modernise training for the RN.  The consortia of partners known as Team Fisher includes Raytheon UK, Elbit Systems UK, Fujitsu and University of Lincoln together with 14 other UK-based suppliers.

Our ‘one team’ philosophy is about collaboration and openness, key to the success of this programme.  We are looking for people with the talent and experience who can help shape better outcomes for our customers.
