Early careers at Leidos
At Leidos, we run a one-year graduate program, enabling you to work on real projects as an embedded and productive team member right from the start. You will be surrounded by seriously smart, approachable people, so there’s plenty of scope to push your boundaries, develop and learn in an environment that’s challenging, supportive and constantly changing.
Investing in our graduates
All of our graduates are employed on a permanent basis and work on real projects as an embedded and productive team member right from the start. We make sure our graduates are fully set up for success, by providing extra support, training and networking opportunities during the first year, along with a mentor and buddy to help you navigate around our organisation.
At the end of the year, our graduates typically continue to work in the area they started in and further develop their strengths and capabilities. Some may wish to explore other opportunities based on their aspirations and the needs of the business. After that, they often progress into technical or managerial positions.
