Northrop Grumman Corporation

Northrop Grumman Corporation is a major manufacturer specializing in defense and commercial aerospace, electronics, and information-technology products and services. They design, develop, build and support some of the world’s most advanced products, from cutting-edge aircraft, next generation spacecraft, unrivaled cyber security systems and all-seeing radars.

The South Bay Workforce Investment Board partners with Northrop Grumman’s Redondo Beach facility to provide workforce development services, including job placement and apprenticeship support. Northrop Grumman has attended several of the SBWIB’s One-Stop virtual hiring events, including the Job Fair for transitioning military personnel at Los Angeles Air Force Base, and recently sat on an employer panel at the California Workforce Association’s conference in Monterey.

Additionally, in partnership with El Camino College and West Los Angeles College, Northrop Grumman participates in a career pathway pipeline for machining and electromagnetic technician pre-apprentices that results in a Department of Labor registered apprenticeship program. Eighteen individuals who completed training have been selected for hire through Northrop Grumman. Through Aero-Flex and Workforce Innovation Opportunities Act (WIOA) funding, the SBWIB reimburses Northrop Grumman a portion of the apprentices’ wages as on-the-job training. These apprentices include workers dislocated due to COVID-19, veterans, long-term unemployed individuals, and youth participants. These individuals are employed at $27.00 an hour with promotional opportunities within the company.
