Why Orbex

At Orbex, Europe’s leading private launch services company, we focus entirely on supporting the needs of the small satellite industry. We have developed one of the most advanced, low carbon, high performance micro-launch vehicles in the world and we are looking for the right candidates to join us in this vision and technological innovation.

We are seeking to recruit forward-thinking, experienced employees for various roles in Forres/Inverness, Scotland at our new manufacturing and engineering centre.

You will probably be working in an environment that rarely gives you a chance to see your work in action. You will be eager for a fast-paced opportunity that offers exceptional freedom and responsibility, as well as the chance to make a critical impact on a European space launch vehicle.

Orbex is looking for candidates who can demonstrate they get things done with a pragmatic attitude and reliable results.

NOTE: You must be a European citizen, from a country that is a signatory to the MTCR convention.



Applications will not be accepted through email, please apply online.

Explore Forres

Orbex Forres, home of our manufacturing and engineering centre, is located at the foot of the Scottish Highlands, near Inverness. It's close to the spectacular coastline, wild beaches and amazing wildlife of the Moray Firth, as well as being a short distance from the world-famous Loch Ness, and Aviemore ski resort. If you enjoy adventurous outdoor pursuits in extraordinary natural environments, the coast and highlands around Forres offer an ideal location.

Mountaineering, rock climbing, abseiling, hiking, mountain biking, cycling, camping, sailing, surfing, motorbiking and skiing are all within easy reach of our main UK factory, and many members of our team participate in adventure sports in the vast, beautiful settings of Sutherland.
