Internship Opportunities

Each year the company offers intern placements of varying durations which provide an opportunity to gain real world experience within a major supplier to the UK Armed Forces and a number of UK Government departments, commercial organisations including energy companies, oil and gas producers and airport operators world-wide, the Royal Mail and the UK’s National Air Traffic Service, among others.

We are proud that the quality of our intern placements has been recognised by the National Council for Work Experience (NCWE), following nominations by our students.

Having a meaningful role with real responsibilities from day one, with the added support of a graduate mentor for the duration of your placement, gives valuable work and life experience with Lockheed Martin UK.

Lockheed Martin has the highest commitment to ethical principles, which are the cornerstone of everything it does. Transparency International, in its defence company anti-corruption index, rates the company as being in the top tier of defence companies worldwide, underpinning its commitment to integrity in everything it does.
