About Leonardo

The company employs about 2,000 people at its Crewe Toll site and is offering positions across many neighbouring and related disciplines.

People joining the organisation will have the chance to work at the cutting edge of new technology at the forefront of aerospace engineering.

Mark Stead.

Leonardo is one of the 'big four' British engineering companies (with BAE Systems, Rolls Royce and MBDA) which comprise Team Tempest, brought together by the UK Ministry of Defence to create the UK's next generation fighter aircraft which is set to join the RAF's fleet in 2035.

Leonardo in Edinburgh also creates radars used by operators such as the US Coast Guard and the Swedish Air Force.

Mark Stead, SVP Radar and Advanced Targeting, took the helm of the organisation in Edinburgh just three months ago, and already he has observed the high levels of pride and passion that employees take in their work right across the business.

Mark said: “Our Edinburgh business was originally built in a matter of weeks in 1943 to create gyro gunsights for the iconic Spitfire aircraft and today’s technology is just as ground-breaking. I can think of few organisations that can offer the same level of daily variety where you’re working on exciting technology that could change the path of aerospace engineering globally.

"Looking to the future, we are continually developing our world-class capabilities, establishing mutually beneficial international partnerships in targeted technical areas and lowering barriers to collaboration which will allow the UK to be in a favourable position for the next generation of technology."
