The opportunity:
At Leonardo, we have an exciting opportunity for a Systems Engineering Industrial Placement to join our team within the Customer Support and Service Solutions (CS3) line of business.

We help to ensure the availability of front-line capability wherever and whenever required. Our Industrial Placement Programme is designed to help you develop the knowledge and skills to become an engineering or business professional of the future. Successful completion of the placement can often lead to an offer for a permanent graduate position.

You will be part of a team working alongside leading engineers, using new technology to solve customer problems. You will be engaging with a wide variety of stakeholders to understand their needs at all stages of the engineering lifecycle.

As part of the application process, you will have the opportunity to explore which area would be the best fit for you. Alongside your main role, you will also have the chance to take part in a project with other early careers individuals, focused on developing and implementing an innovative engineering solution for CS3.

Throughout your Industrial Placement, you will receive coaching and support from your team, including our dedicated CS3 Early Careers Manager, to achieve your objectives as well as your personal development goals. There will also be opportunities to get involved in STEM activities with local schools and universities.

This role can be based at either our Luton or Edinburgh site. It is likely to include travel, both within the UK and possibly also abroad, to provide in-person support to our customers.
