Share our vision
Leonardo’s growth in the UK has resulted from the skills, energy and dedication of our people. We are committed to equal opportunity and offering personal fulfilment through the highest quality education and development.
Leonardo’s growing national and international footprint offers real depth of capability – with over 7,400 employees in the UK and 47,000 worldwide, we have the global resources to deliver. By instilling the importance of engineering in younger generations, we nurture the talent of tomorrow and help guarantee our future business prosperity.
Looking to the future, Leonardo aims to reinforce its competitive position in the UK and its other markets. To meet this challenge, the company needs qualified people with the will to succeed and contribute to satisfy domestic and international needs, and stay at the forefront of innovation and technology.
Developing graduates and apprentices
Leonardo prides itself on recruiting the very best. We run award-winning graduate and apprentice schemes for some 415 young people nationwide. Boasting a current retention rate that has seen 95% of apprentices stay with our companies at the end of their schemes, Leonardo understands that the future of its high-tech business rests in the hands of the next generation of engineers.
The Leonardo National Apprentice Scheme has been awarded the grade of ‘Outstanding' by OFSTED.
