Inmarsat Careers and Employment

About us
Inmarsat was set up in 1979 by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to enable ships to stay in constant touch with shore or to call for help in an emergency, no matter how far out to sea.

With a presence in more than 60 locations across every continent, our world-class products, services and solutions and 24/7/365 customer support facilities
 – more... are available directly from Inmarsat, or – for the majority of customers – via our worldwide network of independent Distribution Partners (DPs) and Service Providers (SPs).

Today our customers are found in many different sectors – but they are typically businesses and organisations that need to communicate where terrestrial telecom networks are unreliable or simply cannot reach.

As well as merchant shipping, our customers include governments, airlines, the broadcast media, the oil and gas industry, mining, construction, and humanitarian aid agencies – to name just a few.

They connect to our fleet of 13 satellites using a range of equipment, including global handheld satellite phones and notebook-size broadband internet devices, as well as specialist terminals and antennas fitted to ships, aircraft and road vehicles.

Our business has grown strongly since 1999 when we became the first intergovernmental organisation to transform into a private company, later floating on the London Stock Exchange (LSE: ISAT.L) in 2005.

In fact, today Inmarsat plc is the market leader in the provision of mobile satellite services, with the largest portfolio of global satellite communications solutions and value-added services on the market.

Our global sales and marketing activities are operated through five market-facing business units:

Inmarsat Maritime, focusing on worldwide commercial maritime opportunities

Inmarsat U.S. Government, focusing on US government opportunities, both military and civil

Inmarsat Global Government, focusing on worldwide (i.e. non-US) civil and military government opportunities

Inmarsat Enterprise, focusing on worldwide enterprise, energy, media and M2M opportunities.

Inmarsat Aviation, focusing on in-flight voice, data, safety services and cabin connectivity, for both business and commercial air transport.

Rewarding Environment
Written by Technical Trainer and Instructional Design (Former Employee) from St. John's, NL on 5 February 2018
The work was very rewarding and I could directly correlate my job satisfaction with work being done. The hours could be long and sometimes all over the place as my roles were very customer driven and globally located. Fair management styles and great work perks. Coming inline with work from home opportunities and culture.
Great environment, dynamic people
No security, constant restructuring.
