Portsmouth Aviation – Business, partner, employer

At Portsmouth Aviation, we recognise that we’re more than just a business – we’re a partner to a diverse array of organisations national and international, as well an important employer in the local community. We don’t shy away from these responsibilities.

We’ve invested heavily in building a workplace culture that prioritises creative relationships with our customers and partners. At the heart of this practice is an emphasis on close communication, mutual respect and an innovative approach to problem-solving. We understand that many businesses rely heavily on our ability to on time and to precise specifications. We always aim to meet these expectations and fulfil our obligations.

We want our employees to know that there’s a future with us.

We’ve devoted considerable resources to building a well-skilled and motivated workforce. As a family-owned business, we’ve always attempted to foster a sense of community and belonging. Approximately 10% of our staff are in funded full-time education and we take on three or four new apprentices each year. Over the last few years, the business has repeatedly made it through to the regional finals for PETA’s Apprentice of the Year. Our £100,000 annual training and development budget is used to support our 200 employees and facilitate their personal and professional development.

Of course, we benefit from this approach too. An organisation that encourages its employees to learn, grow and progress reaps the benefits of a more creative and innovative workforce.
