Leonardo – Engineering the Future

Do you want to work on real-time projects alongside leading scientists and engineers within a globally renowned company?

Leonardo’s Industrial Placement Programme offers you a paid opportunity to develop your current skillset in an innovative and practical environment that can lead to a place on our award winning Graduate Development programme.

Job description
We are looking for talented, enthusiastic, hardworking science and engineering students who enjoy solving complex problems to join our Microwave design team at Luton. We want you to help us design the Microwave/RF elements of our EW systems installed on fast jet, UAV, land and naval platforms.

Key responsibilities
We will give you the opportunity to develop lifelong skills, with the support of world class experts, to design Microwave/RF systems to beyond 20GHz. You will also learn how to assess your designs in our well equipped laboratories using the latest RF/Microwave test methods.

The six month – one year Industrial Placement Graduate Programme
We have created a programme across our UK sites that not only increase your technical skills but give you the opportunity to work on meaningful real life projects alongside experienced engineers and graduates across our business. You will receive coaching and support to achieve your personal goals and work in multidisciplinary teams to gain as much experience across the product lifecycle from your time in industry, as possible. Our ultimate aim is to see you through your undergrad years and hopefully offer you a place on our 2 year Graduate Development programme at an appropriate time.

We value those who continuously ask questions and look to resolve problems through creative and innovative thinking. We will demand a high degree of customer focus and work performance from you in order to meet our operational challenges.

What’s in it for me?

Leonardo values their people and we reward commitment with a competitive remuneration and flexible benefits package including:

  • Competitive salary and accommodation allowance (subject to eligibility)
  • 33 days holiday and flexible working arrangements
  • Contributory pension scheme
  • Private healthcare

What can I expect from my working environment?
You will be working within world class facilities regardless of which site you are based. Dependent on your role, you may be working in an office or lab environment or a combination of both. There may also be opportunities to travel between different sites and to meet with customers and suppliers. Occasionally you may also travel abroad.

What are you waiting for?
A career in the defence industry rewards over 162,000 people and generates a £22billion turnover. Come and be a part of a community and work with some of the most talented engineers in the UK on some of the most exciting projects around.

Don’t delay – these roles attract high competition so apply now to avoid disappointment. Roles will be closed as soon as they are offered.
