What our people say about working at QinetiQ

We value a diverse workforce and we are open to non-traditional talent internally and externally. We recognise and welcome diversity and social differences. Our leaders actively role model and lead an inclusive culture. Our company is more than a logo; it’s about every one of us, the QinetiQ people who bring it to life every day.
We could tell you all about what it’s like to work here, but we thought we’d let our people do that for us! Hear their stories below:
