The Graduate Leadership Development Programme
What does it take to make a difference when you’re starting out in your career? It takes an organisation, like Raytheon UK, that believes in your talents and gives you many ways to grow. As a recent graduate, you’ll work with experts in your chosen role to develop your skills in an innovative technology environment. Are you ready to embark on an adventure?
You’ll make an impact from the beginning with a real role from day one, and be part of real projects that are key to our business success. Beyond that, we invest in our graduates by partnering with an external training organisation to develop skills in business, teamwork and leadership. You’ll have the opportunity to complete further qualifications relevant to the role you are performing. Engineering often pursue and are supported in achieving chartered status, Finance graduates study the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants qualification (CIMA) and Project Management graduates complete the Association of Project Management (APM) qualifications.
We look for graduates who can relocate to the relevant site, and you may be required to rotate to other sites to gain broader business exposure. Please see the job description for further details and specific opportunities within the role for further travel if required.
