We understand the importance of providing real-life work experience for young people and therefore offer a range of opportunities to get involved in our business;

Work experience

We provide a number of opportunities for young people to join us for one week to learn more about Inmarsat, the work we do and a specific area of interest. We try to meet all requests over the year, however, requests for places in August and December are harder to accommodate.

Work experience can be undertaken in any of our departments and is typically aimed at those between the ages of 14-17 years old.

We also offer Ministry of Defence two-week work experience placements for those in the Armed Forces.

If you are interested in undertaking work experience please write to workexperience@inmarsat.com.


Our annual nine-week internship programmes run over a fixed period that falls between the end of June and the end of August and offer a small number of places to experience a range of departments within our business. In the past,  these have included Finance, Engineering and HR.

Work Term placements (Canada)

We offer a limited number of Work Term placements in our St Johns, Newfoundland office.


Throughout the year, we offer a number of opportunities for individuals to undertake a specific project for a duration of six, nine or 12 months. Applicants typically will be working towards a degree and in their third year of study, however some positions will accept applications from individuals who have recently completed a degree.
