Senior Contract Co-ordinator (Current Employee) – Portsmouth Naval Base – 8 March 2018
No 2 days the same in the job role I have. My role is very interesting and I enjoy it very much. I deal with people of all ranks and grades and have received support and advice over the years which has been beneficial to the progress of my career in the last 10 years. I enjoy working alongside the customers, the suppliers and work colleagues as part of a Team. I’ve had challenging days, amusing days and very stressful days but that’s what makes my job a joy to go to each day, just never knowing what the day is going to bring.
Business Architect (Current Employee) – Frimley – 2 March 2018
A challenging environment with a unique business model and great committed people. The complexity of the product make the work very demanding and progress can seem slow, being a highly regulated industry with unique risks to manage. However if you're good you'll succeed and will be rewarded for it.
Lots to be done, great diversity of people, lots of diverse issues to tackle
High workload, multiple demands and a need to be able to prioritise. Good team ethos and team working. A need to be a pro-active, self-starter. Flexible working times, although long hours often required

If you're willing to learn, to get on with it, you will be paired with those who will expertly guide you. If you need help the company will do its upmost to assist. There is a wealth of experience and expertise available meaning nothing is beyond your reach.
Glasgow-based production sites, providing the future capability of the Royal Navy. Multiple programmes offer a huge range of roles and opportunities. Flexible working patterns, flexitime and working from home all available.
My immediate manager was excellent. His manager however was very micro managing. I was no allowed flexitime despite the rest of the team having it and WFH seemed to be selective too. Hourly rate was very low for such an employer too.

After 5 years of working here I can honestly say that this environments moral was very low and this caused problems with productivity and output. underlying conflicts between shop floor and management.

There are many thing about the shipyards that need to be improved, from management attitude to the general culture of its workers. It paints itself to be a wonderful company, but there is very little to prove it from the shop floor.
