Welcome to Finmeccanica UK Ltd

A world-class advanced engineering company, Finmeccanica in the UK is committed to delivering winning, cost-effective solutions in the aerospace, defence, security, cyber and space sectors.

About us

Each year, Finmeccanica seeks to attract enthusiastic people to join one of our highly regarded apprenticeships. We are a large employer of engineering apprentices in the UK, with around 400 graduates and apprentices in training at different facilities across the country.

Entrants to the programme, typically aged 16-19 on joining, undertake an intensive four-year training programme which results in their graduating with a substantial depth of skills in the area in which they have specialised. The programme consists of both academic “off-the-job” and structured “on-the-job” learning, and has been rated ‘Outstanding’ by OFSTED.

The success rates of the Finmeccanica Apprentice Training programme are very high – with close to 90% of apprentices successfully completing the programme. Many of the company’s senior leaders began their careers as apprentices, and a significant number of apprentices go on to undertake degrees and achieve graduate status. Recently, Finmeccanica companies were recognised for their outstanding work with Apprentices, being named as Top 100 Apprenticeship Employers by the City & Guilds and the National Apprenticeship Service.

Finmeccanica is committed to maintaining its skilled workforce, and recognises the need to expand the UK’s pool of engineering resources by supporting initiatives such as the ‘5% Club’ which aims to increase the number of apprentices and graduates in the UK.

Finmeccanica, as a group, operates a worldwide education programme aimed at encouraging young people throughout their academic careers to take an interest in science and technology. We have strategic partnerships with colleges and universities throughout the UK to develop engineering research capabilities and improve students’ and teachers’ understanding of engineering careers.
