On May 31, 2023, Viasat completed its acquisition of Inmarsat, combining the teams, technologies and resources of the two companies to create a new global communications partner.
Viasat is a global communications company that believes everyone and everything in the world can be connected. With offices in 24 countries around the world, our mission shapes how consumers, businesses, governments and militaries around the world communicate and connect. Viasat is developing the ultimate global communications network to power high-quality, reliable, secure, affordable, fast connections to positively impact people’s lives anywhere they are-on the ground, in the air or at sea, while building a sustainable future in space.
The Government business delivers against the requirements for voice, data and video services with demand for global availability and utmost reliability. Whether a military commander on operations, a government official responding to a local emergency or a head of state conducting international affairs, Inmarsat provides them with essential access to voice and broadband data, where and when they need it.
Primary role purpose:
The satellite industry is going through unprecedented changes as new entrants and technological advances fundamentally transform the market. To stay at the forefront of this fast-changing landscape, the Strategy and Growth Programmes team leads the charge for Global Government in developing and executing strategies and plans that keep Inmarsat competitive in our markets today and into the future.
One such initiative is our Military-Ka band programme, through which G2 seeks to provide a military grade satellite communication service to key government across the world. This project is expected to deliver a compelling solution including the network, software and service layer to enable the roll-out of this capability to our customer base.
The primary purpose of this role is to lead and manage government projects to support the objectives of the Strategy and Growth Programmes team, ensuring assigned project work is delivered on time and to a high-quality standard. You will execute a wide range of tasks including managing stakeholders, producing regular reports, coordinating resources and tracking progress and performance, and any other tasks required to get the project done. You will report to the project business owner, Senior Director of Strategy and Growth Programmes or his direct reports, to ensure that project outcomes are met, delivered on time and to agreed standards.
