About us

Here at the Defence Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl) we push the boundaries of science to support the future of the UK’s security and defence. Our world-class team work with our customers – such as the Ministry of Defence - and explore everything from AI and cyber, to homeland security and space systems. We’d love to tell you exactly what we do here because it’s amazing. But a lot of it you’ll need clearance for, so we can’t just yet…

However, there is a lot we can tell you.

Joining as an apprentice, you’ll learn and develop alongside some of the smartest people you’ll ever meet. Whatever part of Dstl you join, you’ll become part of unique and fascinatingly complex projects that make a difference – protecting people and saving lives on the frontline, across the UK and all around the world. You’ll discover a collaborative and supportive culture where everyone pulls together to make our remarkable work happen.

You’ll be earning while you learn. The work you do and the people you do it with will expand your knowledge every single day. Your training and development will be encouraged. You’ll be supported to gain the technical and professional qualifications you need to excel.

Our apprenticeships have different selection criteria depending on which area you choose to apply for. So, if you’re ready to get involved in projects you just won’t find anywhere else (and probably won’t be able to tell anyone about) come and start your career with us.
