A hybrid way of working at Virgin Atlantic
We’re saying goodbye to the 9 to 5. Empowering our people to do their job wherever they are, whenever it matters and however works best for them.
Our approach recognises work as an activity, not a place. Using six key principles and built on a foundation of trust, we celebrate the diversity of our people, embracing that we all have different work-life considerations and varying times when our energy is highest. Of course, being a 24-hour, 365 days operation, one size doesn’t fit all, and flexibility will look different for everyone in each role.
Unlocking careers up in the sky, on the ground and across the globe
Each one of our locations has its very own dash of Virgin flair. So whether you’re after office views at 37,000 feet, the rush of the airport or hanging out at our head office, there’s something for everyone.
One thing’s for certain, no matter what location you step into, you’re bound to find our people creating thoughtful experiences that feel brilliantly different.

How to find The VHQ
Address: The VHQ, Fleming Way, Crawley RH10 9DF
The VHQ is located within the Manor Royal Industrial Estate 3 miles from the M23 motorway. Manor Royal is a busy trading estate and the roads around the area can get busy during peak times. We therefore recommend leaving additional time to reach our offices if you are travelling at the beginning or end of the working day.
- Leave the M23 at junction 10, then at the roundabout take the exit marked A2011 Crawley (1st exit if travelling northbound or 3rd exit if travelling southbound)
- At the Hazelwick roundabout, take the 4th exit onto Gatwick road (signposted Manor Royal)
- At the next roundabout, take the 2nd exit onto Gatwick Road (signposted Gatwick, Horley)
- At the next roundabout, take the 1st exit onto Fleming Way (signposted Fleming Way)
- Turn left into Crawley Business quarter.
- Take the 1st right into The VHQ
