To our valued Leidos candidates:

Coronavirus is on everyone's mind with the effects being felt around the world. The markets are volatile, and we're all concerned for the health and safety of our families, friends, and colleagues. Please know that we're taking all necessary measures to safeguard our employees, customers and the communities in which we live, including following all recommended best practices around social distancing.

With that in mind, in an abundance of caution, we are canceling all face to face career events, such as job fairs and open house events. In the coming days and weeks, we will be hosting career events virtually, using our online chat tools so that we may continue our hiring practice safely and securely. You can find available virtual career events at

We are using telephone meetings and online chats via Brazen to conduct interviews and hiring discussions, and we are offering options for video interviews so that you can have a virtual face to face meeting with your potential new leader. We do not conduct interviews or extend offers via text or chat based social media, such as WhatsApp or MySpace.

Leidos will never ask you to provide payment-related information at any part of the employment application process, nor will Leidos ever advance money as part of the hiring process. And Leidos will communicate with you only through emails that are generated by automated system. If you receive an email purporting to be from Leidos that asks for payment-related information or any other personal information, please report the email to Chris Scalia, Leidos’ Senior Vice President of Talent Acquisition, at [email protected].

As a company, as a country, as a world, we have confronted challenging moments before. We are confident that, guided by our values and the strength of our community as well as the commitment we have to the important work we do each day, we will find our way through this time together. We will do this with the care and concern for one another and the common good that defines. Please keep those impacted by the virus in your thoughts.

International Trade Analyst / Document Controller

Based from our offices in Bedford with hybrid working

Are you a Trade Analyst, Document Controller or have Export Licensing knowledge and looking for a challenging role in a small, high performing team?

If you’ve been away on holiday, you may have passed through one of our body scanners or passed your luggage down one of our baggage lines and had it x-rayed. Leidos supplies this technology to airports across the world. We need to be able to move systems and spare parts globally to fulfil our customers’ needs.

As an International Trade Analyst here at Leidos, you’ll be part of the team making all this happen by ensuring we are fully compliant with legislation.

You will handle:

  • Inward shipments: reviewing paperwork, providing import clearance instructions.
  • Outward shipments: reviewing paperwork, validate export authorisations, approve shipments.
  • Software & technology: reviewing planned transactions to ensure information is captured & documented, validate export authorisations.
  • Export licenses: monitoring existing licenses for validity, prepare data & paperwork for required export license applications.
  • Restricted party screening: performing checks to ensure the company is not conducting business with sanctioned persons, entities or countries.
  • Travel approvals: review, approval & paperwork creation for colleagues' international travels.

You’ll need to be methodical, and detail orientated - checking data is correct and eliminating errors which could cause delayed shipments. There will be plenty of on-the-job training provided to the successful candidate.

Why should you join our team?

We are problem solvers – we often have to think on our feet to solve problems, finding solutions to challenges and mitigating risks.

Development/Growth - We offer meaningful and engaging careers, a collaborative culture, and support for your career goals, all while nurturing a healthy work-life balance. Our managers are committed to individual and collective development and as a global company, there are opportunities to learn and expand your horizons in many different ways.

Reward – we offer a competitive package with great benefits from a pension scheme (contribution matched up to 8%), private medical insurance and life assurance with loads of flexible benefits including dental insurance, gym flex and shopping discounts.

You have great attention to detail and are highly organised.

You are capable of working with high-volumes of data, able to prioritise tasks by urgency.

You may have some familiarity with shipping - terms, required paperwork or external systems.

Ideally, but not essentially, you will have some knowledge of import/export activity, such as tariff codes and export control classifications (HTS codes, ECCNs and similar).

Due to the nature of our business, you must be able to obtain and maintain BPSS clearance.
