About Us


Maritime Services delivers end-to-end services and support to over half of the Royal Navy’s Surface Fleet. You could join over 3,500 employees across our UK sites and help deliver a range of services – from ensuring the Royal Navy’s ships are ready to go to sea to managing Portsmouth Naval Base, or even manufacturing radar, torpedoes and small boats.

We are proud to support the Royal Navy and provide everything they need to live and work at Portsmouth Naval Base. We have extensive experience in managing the facilities and services including accommodation, catering,  transportation and even energy services.

Our support to ships sees us maintain and upgrade the fleet around the globe to ensure the Royal Navy meets its operational commitments - from peacekeeping to disaster relief, we have been there every step of the way.

Our training services ensure personnel are capable and ready for maritime action and our products which include radars, torpedoes and small boats add operational advantage to our UK and international customers. It is an exciting time to be part of Maritime Services as we work with the Royal Navy to prepare Portsmouth Naval Base for the arrival of the giant Queen Elizabeth Class aircraft carriers. By joining Maritime Services you will have the chance to support the planned infrastructure works to modernise the Naval Base or help to develop the engineering support required for the carriers throughout their operational life.

If you want to be part of our future working in partnership with the Royal Navy then a career in Maritime Services awaits you.

Industrial placements



I am currently helping to create a new project performance system for ship repair and maintenance programmes at Portsmouth Naval Base. I really enjoy working to support the ships and knowing that the work I do helps the UK royal navy in their operations inspires me to come to work every day.
