QinetiQ is committed to being a good neighbour in the communities in which we operate. We believe it’s the right thing to do and it’s valued by our employees.
As a significant employer of scientists and engineers, we want to inspire the next generation to consider careers in science and engineering. One way we do this is through our Science Technology Engineering and Maths (STEM) outreach programmes.. As part of our commitment we are a signatory to the Your Life campaign.
QinetiQ also led the launch of The 5% Club, an initiative designed to invest in the younger generation by creating momentum behind the recruitment of apprentices and graduates in the UK.
We support a number of charities across QinetiQ that are important to our people. In the UK we partner with the RNLI, Cancer Research UK and Help for Heroes, all chosen by our employees, and we also offer payroll giving. In the US, employees focus on supporting wounded military and their families by contributions to a range of specialist organisations.
Our blog features many great examples of QinetiQ’s community activities, or you can click on individual stories in the list below.

STEM Outreach: Inspiring the next generation
Our Malvern site welcomed more than 90 children from four schools to a special STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) event. With competitive activities such as creating autonomous Lego robots, programming airlocks, behavioural modelling and building Android apps alongside live demonstrations of QinetiQ technology, our objective is to continue inspiring the next generation of scientists and engineers.
