About Inmarsat

“I have three kids, and they think I’ve got the coolest job. Spacecraft, satellites: it’s intrinsically interesting. But better than that is what we do with these assets; connecting people, saving lives…” Rupert Pearce, CEO

Inmarsat was set up by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) in 1979 to provide a satellite communications network that would protect the lives of mariners anywhere at sea.

We were the first satellite operator to meet the stringent requirements of the Global Maritime Distress and Safety System (GMDSS) and the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) for global safety communications.

Today our satellite communication services are not only saving lives but empowering people and communities, enabling business and trade, and supporting humanitarian work in the most remote and challenging locations.

Our customers range from governments and aid agencies to ship owners and airlines – what they share is a need to stay connected at all times, no matter where they are. Our wide range of mobile and fixed satellite communication solutions and partners’ value-added applications deliver all the connectivity they need when they are beyond the reach of terrestrial networks.

Each year we take on a small number of graduates onto our graduate programmes, to provide a solid understanding of our organisation and a strong foundation to go on to become great SMEs or leaders of the future.

We offer;

  • Rotational programmes in Technical Engineering and IT, Finance and Sales
  • Experience weeks to broaden business acumen and commercial awareness
  • Membership of a relevant professional body
  • A bespoke development programme to help you to reach your full potential

Our programmes are designed to challenge and enrich, establishing you alongside some of the leading professionals in the industry. As a new graduate, you will gain invaluable experience and be given the opportunity to contribute to programmes.

All of our graduate programmes look for people with a science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) background
