The Opportunity

Do you want to work on real-time projects alongside leading scientists and engineers within a globally renowned company? Leonardo is an international leader in electronic and information technologies for defence systems, aerospace, data, infrastructures, land security and protection, and sustainable ’smart’ solutions.

Exciting early career opportunities at Leonardo

Your story starts here.

We are a continually expanding company, offering exciting opportunities to talented individuals who want to work at the forefront of technology. With the majority of our engineers having chartered status, you can look forward to working with highly skilled professionals that are passionate about their work.

Leonardo’s Fast Track Programme offers you a permanent position to develop your knowledge and skills in our innovative and practical environment. In addition to working with our highly skilled engineers and business professionals, you will complete a 12 month programme to develop the skills you require to be a leading technical or business professional of the future.

Our 12 month Fast Track Programme

You will be provided with a wealth of development opportunities in both virtual and applied working environments.  On our programme you will engage with challenging and exciting project work and deliver innovative business or technical solutions as part of a team of subject matter experts. Throughout the programme you will receive coaching and support from your team to achieve your objectives as well as your personal development goals. 

You will gain a wide array of experience in your day to day role and work in Integrated Project Teams to deliver exciting and innovative technical solutions. We are committed to developing our graduates into leading technical or business professionals, and as such we will also support you through your preferred route for Chartership. 

At Leonardo we value individuals who continuously demonstrate a dedication to their personal development, and this is no different for our graduates. We have partnered with Coursera, the world leading online training platform that offers around 4,000 courses you can sign up to, according to your professional and personal interests. Self-directed learning thrives in this environment. We are looking for highly motivated individuals who are willing to take on a challenge to fill our graduate roles, and we will demand a high degree of customer focus and work performance from you in order to meet our operational challenges. 

At Leonardo, we are strongly committed to supporting all our people, and, as society and the environment we work in changes, our approach to Inclusion and Diversity continues to evolve and adapt to reflect this. A culture of inclusion goes on to create an environment for greater collaboration, innovation and opportunities to develop as an organisation. If you are willing and able to commit to giving your best performance, you will find Leonardo a very rewarding place to work!  

What you will do

We are looking for talented, enthusiastic Science & Engineering Graduates, who enjoy solving complex problems, to work alongside some of the most talented people in the UK.

We want you to help us by joining our highly skilled team designing the Antenna Structures that form part of the self-protection systems installed on fast jet, UAV, land and naval platforms.

You will use our super-computing facilities to develop 3D EM modelling skills to design innovative antennas at frequencies as high as 40GHz. Your designs will form key parts in high performance EW systems to meet challenging system requirements.

You will learn how to assess your work in anechoic test chambers and laboratories to develop robust designs that will function reliably in harsh environments to enable decades of use.

You will get the opportunity to develop these lifelong skills with the support of highly skilled colleagues.

Your role may even take you across the UK or abroad for technical reviews.

What we are looking for

Mandatory

Please note that in order to apply for this opportunity you must be eligible for UK Security Clearance. Normally this is to the level of Security Check (typically known as “SC”) for our business, which includes having a minimum of 5 years permanent residency in the UK, but may need to be to a higher level for this particular role due to the nature of the projects and or programmes that the role will be supporting.

Qualifications

All of our roles require (a) a minimum of an upper Second class Bachelors/Integrated Master’s degree, or (b) a higher degree, such as an MSc or PhD/EngD. For this role, the subject should be Applied Physics or Physics.

We will support your personal development with training and help you to work towards professional accreditation if you wish.

We work in a modern, flexible environment and will accommodate your personal needs wherever possible.

We've signed the Gradcracker feedback pledge.

(This means that we will supply feedback if requested after an interview.)
