As a Procurement Graduate you will work closely with colleagues in other departments (such as Engineering and Manufacturing), both to learn the key role Procurement plays in an Integrated Project Team (IPT) based business model and to develop the collaboration skills necessary to influence the relationship with our suppliers.
As part of our ongoing commitment to young peoples' educational development (demonstrated by our latest Gold level accreditation by Investors in Young People) all graduates UK wide will attend short modules away from the office throughout the 2 years to develop yourself and network across the company; examples include orientation, self-awareness and tackling business problems - all underlined by Leonardo's core strategies.
Your role will give you exposure to the full life cycle of supplier management which is fully integrated with business context to provide you with a broad baseline of skills and experience.

All of our roles require (a) a minimum of an upper Second class Bachelors/Integrated Masters degree, or (b) a higher degree, such as a MSc or PhD. In all cases the subject should be engineering, mathematics, physics or another relevant discipline.
