Company Benefits

At Leonardo, we believe that our employees work best when they are able to achieve balance between work and other aspects of life. That’s why we are committed to designing policies and developing a working environment that promote the benefits and well-being of all our employees.

We want to support you and encourage you to fulfil your potential through:

The journey towards custom working

In March 2020, Leonardo UK had to make fast and dramatic changes to keep our people safe and our business operating. Since then, our people have shown courage, commitment and resilience as we’ve continued to deliver for our customers. As we move towards the full implementation of custom working, we look back at our journey through the pandemic and look forward to a bright new future.
