Looking for a great start to your career in technology, earning and learning on a professionally accredited, award winning scheme?

We are looking to recruit the technical and business experts of the future through our nationally recognised, award winning Apprenticeship Programmes.

Leonardo’s two-year Business Apprenticeship provides a wealth of learning and development opportunities whilst gaining a Level 3 NVQ qualification in Business and Administration. You will work alongside specialists while completing a series of four-month rotational placements – in areas such as Sales & Marketing, Commercial, Procurement, Finance, Project Management, Bid Management and Human Resources – across the company that will springboard you into the world of business.

You will learn how various business areas operate, discovering how projects are run, managed and delivered, and having opportunities to liaise with customers and suppliers. There may also be opportunities for travel between the company’s UK and international sites.

Key Responsibility Areas

Year 1:

You will gather real work evidence such as narratives describing day-to-day tasks completed and highlight the key business competencies demonstrated. The NVQ will require you to complete a folder of this evidence, demonstrating that you are developing into a well-rounded business person through on-the-job training and are gaining the essential practical skills needed to succeed.

Year 2:

Following completion of several placements, you will enter a final placement, becoming more focused on one particular discipline. This targeted learning allows you to develop into a valuable member of the department, and will provide you with the final pieces of evidence required to complete the NVQ.
