The Military Officers Leadership Programme

The GE Aviation Military Officer Leadership Programme (MOLP) transitions talented military officers into successful commercial industry leaders, by completing a challenging, structured leadership development programme. In this role you will demonstrate and further develop your transferable skills gained from military service, and apply them to solve complex business and engineering problems, develop and execute objectives for self and others, and effect short-term and long-term business goals.


What to expect from the programme

The MOLP is a unique opportunity to work in three eight-month rotations within the Avionics, Power and Propeller Systems teams. Qualified candidates are selected to start their careers in a two-year rotational training program, which includes on-the-job training, formal classroom training and coaching/mentoring by senior staff.

As a MOLP, you may perform your rotations in several different functional or business areas; opportunities may include Engineering, Programmes, Supply Chain, Sales, or Marketing assignments. Through these rotations you will develop broad business experience and exposure to GE Aviation and commercial industry.

MOLP is offered only to those who have excelled in their military careers, and have a proven record of dealing with challenging, less defined, scopes of work as you will be expected to develop strategies and plans to succeed in a variety of business challenges.

Together with successful candidates, we’ve been refining GE’s Military Officer Leadership Programme in the UK – and my experience is that it delivers. It delivers a challenging but guided experience for officers looking to make best use of their skills and explore where a career in this industry could take them. It delivers for GE because we benefit from a talented stream of new ideas, diverse experiences, and dynamic leaders in the shape of all the MOLP appointees. Each MOLP experience is different. Every experience has been valuable for us all.

It really is a flagship programme across the multiple businesses and offers a unique opportunity to find your fit, rapidly develop commercial skills and, as I have experienced, is a great launchpad for roles of increasing responsibility going forwards.

The GE Military Officers Leadership Programme (MOLP) provides an opportunity for veterans to transition into the private sector through varied experiences across the business. What has impressed me personally is how quickly they adapt to new situations and start delivering business value through leadership, teamwork, and execution focus. In addition, the business gains valuable insight into how its products are used in a military environment.
