At Inmarsat we believe that diversity fosters creativity and accelerates innovation, and we want every person who joins us to realise their full potential. We are committed to creating a workplace that is increasingly diverse and inclusive and we are immensely proud of our diversity, which reflects the global communities we serve.
Inmarsat thrives on the diversity and variety of our most important asset – our people. We’re multi-national and multi-ethnic, and the breadth and richness of skills, contribution and viewpoints that this brings powers our business and makes us stronger. As we seek to connect customers to a better future all over the world, people are the key to our success.
- An inclusive and welcoming culture
- Flexible working to ensure that you can achieve good work-life balance
- Employee networks
- Mental health-trained first aiders
We currently have two well established employee networks: Women at Inmarsat and LGBT+ at Inmarsat and are currently formalising groups for our BAME community and a Veterans community. Such networks, which are open to all, rely on employee interest, drive and passion to work well and require active allies and supporters to create change. We are very open to creating more networks, based on, for example, ethnicity, faith, or ability.
Pride means so much to all of us within the LGBT+ community, however having the support of our colleagues at this time of year makes Pride month so much more than LGBT+. It’s a wider community of allies from across our company showing their support and getting involved with us. That is very special indeed.Tara Maclachlan
VP, IIOT Strategy – Enterprise, Innovation and Chair of Inmarsat’s LGBT+ community
To recognise the importance of diversity and inclusion in the workplace, we have made a firm commitment to the LGBT+ community with a month-long programme of activity in June 2020. We are proud to be celebrating LGBT+ Pride Month alongside our colleagues, customers, partners and the wider community.
We don’t just want diversity – we need it. As digitalisation and globalisation continue to transform the world, every aspect of our lives becomes more connected.Rupert Pearce

We have a far broader cultural psyche that most other organisations. So many nationalities, and we are located all over the world, which is quite different from a lot of other companies.Phil Balaam
Executive Sponsor for Diversity and Inclusion
I fully believe that understanding, embracing and honouring our diversity will make Inmarsat an even better place to work, lead to stronger, more customer-focused solutions and give us a distinct competitive edge.Natasha Dillon
