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.
Project Coordinator - Production Engineer (Former Employee) – Portsmouth – 15 January 2018
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.
Pipefitter (Former Employee) – Scotland – 6 January 2018
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.
Production Operative (Former Employee) – United Kingdom – 6 January 2018
great company to work for and very friendly staff and management i would work for this company again without thinking about it.and they train you up well to do the job in hand also they take the health and safety side of things and good teamwork also plenty of overtime and you always have very helpful staff if you were not sure about the job and the duties you were given.
Being a large company can make it very interesting for a career in many different skill sets. There's always opportunities for progression. You have also the opportunity to work closely with the various customers & suppliers getting a greater insite to how others see you & how they work, which can improve not only you personally but how you can improve the work ethics & processes.
Good experience, time management, and company. My work would require high attention to detail and being as accurate as possible; e.g. making sure all the sockets are at the same height and are as straight as possible etc. This would achieve a happy customer and a good reputation.

Supply Chain – Business Manager, TyTAN (Current Employee) – Lincolnshire – 13 December 2017
A typical day in the office entails dealing with the customer, and a diverse range of teams and individuals across the business. The workplace is a formal environment but a good balance is struck between work life and home life. The hardest part of the work is managing the extensive stakeholder base within the company and with the embedded customer community but working with the high end technology and being embedded with the customer makes working here very rewarding.

Integrated Delivery Team Lead (Former Employee) – Portsmouth – 6 December 2017
A Global Company with a very emphatic ethos towards implementation of its Code of Conduct, but that has a drawback in that at times excessive beurocracy has developed amongst the Management which has a counterproductive effect on what the customer wishes the Company to achieve
Plater (Former Employee) – Barrow-In-Furness, Cumbria – 5 December 2017
A great place to work. it can get a little tedious at times when there is not much work to do. health and safety is the number one priority, as it should be. I was not able to do the job i trained for to my full ability because there are other trades that do that particular function for you. It narrowed down what i could do considerably. Its all about the nature of the product, building submarines, and when lives are at stake it has to be done right first time which i understand. Would i contract there again........yes.
the 4 on 4 off shift pattern is great.
contracting being away from home for the working week.
