We encourage our colleagues to deliver excellence to our customers yet also balance their personal lives, take holidays, eat well, move more, live mindfully and think positively.
Over 80% of our workforce are ex-military, so we embody the values and culture of our armed forces customers. All while celebrating the skills, experience and contribution brought by our colleagues who have a non-military background.
Whatever your experience, our approach to our work makes us an exceptional employer. We work hard… but we believe work should be fun! We encourage a positive, inclusive and supportive working environment where we celebrate and reward our successes.
We recognise that a diverse, talented and highly motivated workforce is pivotal to our success. Therefore, we're committed to providing a safe, supportive and inclusive environment for all of our employees.
We’ve been an Armed Forces Covenant signatory since January 2015, and in 2019 we were awarded the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme Gold Award. We’re delighted to:
We promise to:
We offer truly flexible working arrangements and have a range of initiatives in place based on trusting our people to work within a broad framework, so they can be most productive. Many of our colleagues flex the hours they work to accommodate commitments such as school drop-offs, exercising at lunchtime or just enjoying a walk on a sunny day.
We recently acted on employee feedback suggesting that improving our maternity and sickness offerings would make us an even more attractive employer. Our company maternity pay was uplifted to 18 weeks of full pay. Company sick pay is 12 weeks full pay followed by 12 weeks half pay in any 12-month period.
We know the workplace can play a positive role in enhancing overall wellbeing. We’ve introduced a range of health and wellbeing initiatives to look after our people, including:
We recognise that individuals learn in different ways, at different paces and at different times; so, we offer opportunities through professional qualifications, internal and external courses, apprenticeships, and self-directed study. Professional development helps our people to enhance their knowledge and skills in their current role, and to prepare for internal opportunities and promotion within the business.
Learning is accessible across the business, and we currently have staff undertaking a range of training right up to master’s degrees in engineering.
We’re keen to nurture the growth of those starting out in their careers too. We have graduates and apprentices within our team who are developing through new experiences and access to rewarding professional opportunities. This helps us to diversify and brings fresh thinking to the way we work.
We’ve picked up many amazing awards over the years for innovation and our business culture. We were delighted to be recognised as Employer of the Year in the British Ex-Forces in Business Awards 2023. The year before that we won the Best Companies Wellbeing Award and ranked at number 9 in the UK’s best large companies to work for list. We also achieved a ‘Best Companies 3 Star Accreditation’ and a rating of ‘world-class’ for our employee engagement for the eighth year in a row.

This collaboration will see QinetiQ, Inzpire, and Naimuri work with the University of Lincoln to maximise capabilities in artificial intelligence
From my first day I have been impressed by the way Inzpire treats its employees. Everyone is recognised for the individual talent they bring to the party, and nobody is put under undue pressure, even when the chips are down with deadlines to meet. The management take time to engage with their people and actually listen to what is said, taking action where necessary. If you are considering pursuing a career with Inzpire, I cannot recommend them enough.
GECO Field Service Representative, Mission Systems
Inzpire is the first company I have had a full-time role with following my graduation from university. To say that I hit the jackpot is an understatement! The culture at Inzpire is very welcoming, everyone loves to share their knowledge and past experiences. I haven’t come from a military background, so every day is a school day, but at this school you talk about flying helicopters and building simulators!
Leaving the Air Force after serving 22 years back in 2018 was a daunting prospect. Choosing Inzpire is a decision I have never regretted. From joining four years ago as a field services representative and subsequently working within business development, I have recently taken up the role of head of Helicopter Services Division. Throughout my journey I have been encouraged and supported by both my peers and superiors to develop professionally.
Head of Helicopter Services Division
I started at Inzpire with relatively little work experience, and I was worried this may hold me back or that I’d be given the ‘boring’ jobs to do! But I was proved wrong. My manager has always trusted me to make my own decisions, to lead with projects, and to manage my own time. The opportunities I’ve been given so far have been fantastic, from representing the company at award dinners, to managing international exhibitions!
There’s no typical week for me, and whether it be a week with two or three days at head office, or none at all while I ply my work elsewhere in the UK and abroad, Inzpire is a company that recognises the importance of looking after its people, while ensuring outstanding delivery to its customers. And there’s a good mix of working from home for me too, which is very reassuring to my family…after all, I did leave the service to spend less time away!
