Our People

Leonardo prides itself on recruiting the very best, and we run award-winning graduate and apprentice schemes. The Leonardo national apprentice scheme has received an "outstanding" grade from Ofsted and several Leonardo apprentices have won national apprentice of the year awards.


Participation in Leonardo apprenticeship schemes can count towards membership and Chartership in a range of professional institutions, including the Institution of Engineering and Technology; Institution of Mechanical Engineers; Institute of Physics and Royal Aeronautical Society.


That means Leonardo can offer outstanding opportunities for people with the drive and determination to be successful. We believe in nurturing future talent by developing and training people throughout their careers. For example, we offer financial support to business and engineering graduates as they pursue professional qualifications.


All our UK sites have implemented policies covering:

  • Equal Opportunities
  • Work Life Balance
  • Respect at Work
  • Health and Safety Standards
  • Occupational Health (OH)
