Leonardo has had a presence in Luton since 2003, and is now home to around 1,000 people who are involved in the design and development of the company’s electronic warfare capability, which has been helping protect airborne platforms from a range of RF-based threats.
The site has strong connections with the local schools, colleges and universities to engage with Leonardo’s Early Careers programmes, as well as promoting STEM events
The Luton site is located just off Junction 10 of the M1. It is five minutes away from the Luton Airport Parkway train station, which is only a 20-minute journey into central London. Luton Airport is a couple of miles away from the office, and offers domestic UK flights, as well as flights to all the main European destinations, including Leonardo’s head office in Rome.
What the local region offers
The Luton Office is close to the local shopping centre which also has a wide range of shops and restaurants to choose from, as well as a multi-screen cinema complex. The cathedral city of St Albans is close by famous for its Roman remains and beautiful medieval architecture.
