Generation Tempest

The development of the next generation Combat Air system is one of the most exciting engineering projects to be taking place over the coming decades. As part of Generation Tempest, the Royal Air Force and its industry partners are committed to promoting the future opportunities available to young people by embracing Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM).

In line with the UK skills agenda, Leonardo is an active supporter of STEM activities, engaging with the next generation of engineers who will contribute to delivering Tempest programme and other major UK aerospace programmes. This includes running education programmes around the UK which aim to encourage young people throughout their academic careers to take an interest in science and technology.

We also offer a range of early careers opportunities for graduates, apprentices, industrial interns and summer placements.
