Our People

Our People

People matter.
We offer everyone the opportunity to excel in a fair and safe environment.

We are proud of the talent, commitment and energy of our employees, and in turn we ensure transparency, openness and investment in skills, with a commitment to engaging our people in the vision and direction of the Group.

We help people into work and develop their skills

With youth unemployment a major issue in the UK, apprenticeships offer an important employment prospect. Since establishing our apprenticeship programme in 2005 we have increased the number of apprentices from 5 to 45 (8% of our workforce).

We have been welcoming graduates into the company since 2006, giving them the opportunity to learn and progress in an exciting industry.

We support our people and recognise their achievements

We celebrate outstanding performance through our annual Sales Advisor and Site Manager awards and through our ‘Extra Mile’ scheme, which awards prizes based on employee nominations and votes. Our employees are regularly recognised in leading industry awards.

We offer all our employees a comprehensive benefits package and encourage a supportive and open culture in which skills can be nurtured and developed. All our employees have the opportunity to share in the company’s success through a Sharesave scheme and have access to a free and confidential assistance programme, which offers telephone support, advice and counselling.
