Guiding over 2.5 million flights – carrying some 240 million passengers – is no mean feat. But thanks to a combination of state-of-the-art technology and the expertise and dedication of our amazing people, that’s what we achieve over the course of a year. And it’s what makes NATS such an exciting place to work.
We want you to be happy, engaged and challenged by your work. We have set ourselves some challenging targets over the next few years and one thing is clear: we can only achieve these through our people.
We aspire to lead the way in our industry technically, operationally, commercially and politically. You can be part of that journey helping us shape the future of the aviation industry by setting new standards in safety, service and value to all our customers.

There’s plenty on offer
As an employee you’ll benefit from top of the range training along with a competitive package, great benefits and a friendly working environment.
You can also enjoy also a wide variety of sports and social clubs, discounts on events ranging from air shows to theatre, and we encourage our people to network and get together whenever possible. There is even an on-site gym at our larger sites and subsidised canteen.
Equality and diversity
As an equal opportunities employer we treat our employees in a fair and respectful manner. We value the diversity of our workforce and do all we can to create an environment free from discrimination, victimisation, harassment or bullying.
We encourage candidates from all backgrounds to apply for roles with the confidence and reassurance that all decisions are made fairly and free from bias. You can rely on the fact that all applications are considered solely on an individual’s skills, previous experience and individual merit.
Since 2015 we’ve used the Leesman Workplace Effectiveness survey to gather objective data and views from our employees on their workplace. The data is used to better understand issues and drive improvements. Since we’ve begun using the survey our overall workplace effectiveness score has increased year on year and we will continue to strive to make it better.
Working together with our Trade Unions
Our annual employee relations survey showed a steady improvement in the relationship between union representatives and managers – plus some ideas for further improvement. Our union representatives and managers talk regularly to try to manage change and resolve problems. The better we are at this, the more our employees’ voices are heard and the more we can move the business forward based on constructive challenge and feedback. Last year we jointly delivered with trade union colleagues a range of skills programmes to both managers and TU representatives as part of our ‘working together’ commitment.
Commitment to gender diversity
We strive to create an environment where everyone is rewarded equitably for their contribution; addressing our gender pay imbalance through our gender pay gap action plan is an important part of this. We have made some progress, but we acknowledge that making meaningful improvements to our gender pay imbalance is a long-term commitment. Read our latest Gender Pay Report here.
Some of the steps we are taking to embrace the benefits of gender diversity, now and in the future, are bespoke STEM activities for young women, provision of development and training opportunities through our new women’s network and we are one of more than 50 aviation and aerospace companies to have signed the Women in Aviation and Aerospace Charter through which the UK’s aviation and aerospace sectors are making a commitment to work together to build a more balanced and fair industry for women.
