Do you want to work on real-time projects alongside leading scientists and engineers within a globally renowned company?

The opportunity: Graduate Operations (Business)

Leonardo is an international leader in electronic and information technologies for defence systems, aerospace, data, infrastructures, land security and protection and sustainable ’smart’ solutions. We are globally renowned and are continually expanding, offering exciting opportunities to talented individuals who want to work at the forefront of our technology.

Our 2 year Graduate Programme

The Graduate Development Program is designed to support your first steps after leaving university and to help you develop your career. Through a comprehensive 2 year program, you will have the chance to gain a complete understanding of the organisation and be involved in real challenges from day one. You will have the opportunity to learn from colleagues who are experts in their field, while always being encouraged to use your initiative.

Typically your placements will consist of 3-6 month rotations across the Operations department including the opportunity to do an external placement elsewhere in the business. The Operations graduate scheme is a fantastic way to gain practical experience in a wide spectrum of disciplines which a direct entry position cannot always offer.

Additionally, you can begin to build a network of contacts, which will assist you in your future development. Alongside the core placements, the graduate scheme supports your personal development, such as DISC profiling and personal branding workshops, all with the aim of making you in to an all-round professional. Upon successfully completing the scheme the plan is to transition you into a full time role within the company, with a vision to progress within Leonardo.
