Application Advice:

Research the UK specific projects that Lockheed Martin are part of in the UK as well as the specialisations of each site. The projects and roles undertaken by each site in the UK can vary significantly from Research and Development to Systems Integration to Manufacturing. It is important to have an understanding of what role you are applying for and how you can contribute to the specialisation at that site.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself.

Look at the specialisation of the Lockheed Martin UK site that you are applying to and think of questions relating to those fields.

Talk about experiences where you have worked as part of a team, led a team (academic or otherwise), negotiated with customers, etc. Also show that you can think outside of the box and that you can learn from past experiences as part of a "Lessons Learned".

Application Advice:

Graduate Systems Engineer, at Lockheed Martin
Read the full review »


Application Advice:

For certain disciplines of engineering (mechanical, electrical, software etc.) a good technical understanding is preferable. The company are keen on bringing on people who have a solid technical background but also have the attitude and desire to learn and develop more and are enthusiastic about the projects the company have to offer.

Interview Advice:

During the group task do not feel that you have to be loud and outspoken to make sure you make a good impression. Focus on the task at hand and how best to solve it rather than talking just to sound like you know what to do. It is about the entire team reaching the goal in the best possible manner. Also, I would advise revising basic technical understanding of the subject that you prepare a presentation on as you will be asked questions on it.

Application Advice:

It is important to include social activities such as hobbies and interests as this demonstrates your ability to communicate with other people. This is important as technical skills can be learnt but your ability to work in a team is something which is crucial from day 1.

Interview Advice:

Pause to think before answering the question and consider the situation you were in, the task you had to perform, the action which you took and the resolution which you came to.

Application Advice:

Be sure to hit as many of the skills listed in the advert and tailor your CV to the job you are applying for. Also think about your personal skills, which may not be listed as essential/desired skills for the job but are sought out by interviewers.

Interview Advice:

Do your research into the company values and think about how you might have embodied these in your past experiences, and talk about them in your interview (even if they don't ask about it directly). If applying for an engineering role, prepare by revising your knowledge of the full engineering lifecycle.

Application Advice:

Make sure you participate during the group activity. Discuss and engage with your other applicants and demonstrate that you have the ability to work with everyone effectively.

Interview Advice:

Relatively straightforward assessment centre. Consisted of a group activity in which applicants were split into two teams and given an objective. Important to discuss the solution thoroughly with your group and make an effort to include everyone in these discussions as there will likely be some candidates who are quieter than others. Next, and final stage was a one-to-one interview with an Engineering Manager and an HR Manager. Questions were mostly behavioural so following the STAR technique worked well, followed by one technical question that was very general relating to considerations to make when designing a system.

Systems Engineer, WCSP at Lockheed Martin

Application Advice:

The application process is ideal; nicely avoiding a raft of questions and psychometric tests that other employers seem to push on applicants. Submitting a curriculum vitae, application form, attending interview and taking part in an assessed group task was refreshing and meant less time away from studies repeating the usual large questions.

Interview Advice:

I was grilled on my systems engineering knowledge and university experience by the head of systems engineering on site; this was more motivational than worrying and it was good to know that graduates are valued highly enough for interviews to be conducted by members of the Senior Leadership Team themselves.

Interview Advice:

What do you think you can bring to Lockheed Martin?

This question is something I was asked and answered with enthusiasm - but in a subject area that wasn't directly relevant to the core work being conducted on site. Understandably they knew that they would receive applicants that know the company for its rich Aerospace heritage. However, what was not advertised was that in the UK, the company conducts little to no aerospace work and has some minor ties to space systems in the US. These space opportunities are few but still present.

Application Advice:

Keep chasing up your application. All recruitment goes through a subcontracted agency, things often get lost.

Interview Advice:

If you are applying for a graduate position, push your academic skills over your practical. Make sure you have researched the work on site and talk about that (not products from Lockheed Martin in the US)

Systems Engineer, Defence at Lockheed Martin

Application Advice:

Look at the core values of the company, "Do what's right, respect others, perform with excellence". If these are values that you want or demonstrate and experience in your workplace, this is a great company to work for. Demonstrate this in your applications and interviews.

Interview Advice:

LMUK are interested in the people, not necessarily their level of technical ability (although that does help). You could be the most intelligent person in the world, but if you can't communicate effectively and be a friendly member of the team, they will not be interested. This shows with the people who work here too.

Having now been included in the interview process (from the other side) it is clear that your technical ability is important, but being a person that we can all relate to is even more important!

Application Advice:

Make sure you display a clear passion for engineering, not just in academia. Formula student and other engineering clubs are thought of very strongly here. Even if you just like tinkering with computers or fixing cars then it is well worth putting on your interests.

Interview Advice:

Make sure you research what is going on at the site you are applying for. There is no point talking about the wonderful things LM are doing in the US if you are applying to a UK office.

Interview Advice:

Application Advice:

Show that you have the ability to learn. Applications are very competitive so simply stating grades won't be enough. Give examples of hope you overcame something which may have been out of your skillset, something that pushed you out of your comfort zone.

Interview Advice:

Know about the company and what we do, preferably about the site you are interviewing for. A knowledge of some products and/or projects that we undertake on site shows that you've at least taken an interest in the company.

Also be professional throughout the day, just because you're on a break between interviews doesn't mean we automatically stop listening to what your saying.

Graduate systems engineer, Systems at Lockheed Martin

Application Advice:

Strive to show how flexible you are on your C.V and/or covering letter. In large companies, it is not necessarily the most suitable candidate to the job role that is chosen, there could be candidates who are better suited to the company longer term, and that's very appealing to managers. This is due to the large amount of business areas that they cover, and they may have future plans which you fit in to much better than other candidates.

Also, stand out with a bit of information outside of work or education, like any charity work you may have done or sports teams/organisations that you may have been part of. This will help you add substance to the interview before you even get there, and it makes it much easier to connect with your interviewer.

Interview Advice:

If you have an interview, the main reason why you are there is so the interviewer(s) can see what kind of person you are, and perhaps how you will fit in to the work environment. This means it's more important to be yourself and to get along with the interviewers than it is to out-and-out sell yourself. Obviously, it is important to back up what you have written on your C.V, but you will be far more memorable to them if you get along with them, and they think that they would have no problems working with you.
This doesn't mean talk about yourself the whole time; a useful way to make yourself feel more comfortable in an interview situation is to engage in some light-hearted conversation with the interviewers, they may even open up to you about their hobbies and interests, making the whole situation feel much more natural. It helps to remove the hierarchy in the room.

Engineering Graduate, Air Traffic Management at Lockheed Martin

Application Advice:

If applying to Lockheed Martin, apply to the Ampthill facility.

Depending on your interests be careful - This can often be IT based engineering which will not include experience directly transferable to mechanical or aerospace industry sectors.

If you like hands on engineering this may not be the role for you! It will not provide you with much experience into design.

It is very good if you wish to transfer to project management or progress to higher levels within a company as it is customer facing and concentrates on many functional areas of a project or programme. It focuses on customer requirements so can switch easily between a business or engineering orientation as the customer business need must be known.

Interview Advice:

Revise the full product life cycle - interview questions can vary depending on whether you are applying for a mechanical, safety or IT role.

Application Advice:

Despite the company being historically aeronautical, there is not much of that at Ampthill so do not apply if you are solely interested in things such as aerodynamics. The company is very systems engineering orientated which is a very desirable skill so design your application around that.

Systems Engineer Associate, Civil at Lockheed Martin

Application Advice:

Lockheed Martin's reputation is as an aerospace company but applicants should know that, at the moment, the UK branch of the company does not conduct much in the way of aerospace work currently. That may change in the next decade but at the moment there is little work of this fashion at LMUK. Many aerospace engineers that applied and were accepted (including myself) were allotted systems engineering roles. And whilst I have enjoyed the work, it has not been using my area of study from university.

Interview Advice:

I was asked the question "What would you try to contribute to the company if you received a graduate position here?". Something along those lines anyway. I believe when they ask this its not to actually gauge whether or not you'll improve the business with your brand-spanking new business plan and idea for a product/service, but rather to see whether you are energized enough to perform a role well. I answered with a speech on how, given the opportunity, I would attempt to help develop Lockheed Martin to be more competitive in the civil space market (especially with contenders like SpaceX). I was accepted but most likely not because they felt I could definitely improve the civil space aspect of the company, but rather that I showed the energy that I could do so.
