The Lockheed Martin apprenticeship scheme is a blue chip programme in which gifted early career professionals grow and excel in challenging and inspiring environments. It is a nationally-recognised qualification underpinned by the National Skills Council which includes elite training incorporating professional accreditation.

An apprentice at Lockheed Martin UK will get hands-on experience at an innovative company that is driven by a sense of purpose and a passion for innovation to shape the future and solve some of the world’s most pressing problems.

Working as part of a dynamic team, the focus is on providing smart solutions whilst creatively solving problems for our customers.

“Having always been very interested in all things technology related, specifically in software, when I saw the apprentice position at Lockheed Martin UK I could not believe my luck. I applied and was successful. Through both professional work and college, I have increased my technical knowledge and confidence, working alongside some of the industry’s best.

Doing an apprenticeship with Lockheed Martin has grown my character and my skills; I am currently undertaking the Herculean task of setting up a LAMP web-server at home.

I would recommend this route for anyone who is interested in gaining the initial experience in a technology focused career.”
