    The culture

    Joining the business isn't just about seeing things their way. It's also about bringing their 5 guiding principles to life. Here's what that means…

    We listen

    Listening enables us to work positively and collaboratively, and gives customers, partners and colleagues the assurance that their voices are always heard.

    We are professional

    Our mix of prudence and diligence, care and attention to detail means that our customers have certainty and assurance in everything we do and trust us to deliver.

    We take responsibility

    Each of us is accountable for what we do. From the smallest detail to team safety and caring for our communities and the environment, we know that everything matters.

    We are determined to succeed

    Every challenge is an opportunity. We work collaboratively and focus on safety, productivity and quality to find solutions they can be proud of and that provide a positive, lasting benefit.

    We work as one team

    We work as one - in our teams and partnerships, and with our customers. We respect each contribution, and everyone stands up to be counted.

    What's in it for you?

    In return, our client offers a wide range of rewards and benefits, including 33 days annual leave, a great pension and valuable life assurance. What's more, you'll also be able to make the most of a range of brilliant extras, which include their Cycle to Work Scheme, discounts at restaurants and cinemas with a Taste Card, annual flu vaccine, and Health & Wellbeing and Life Management Support for you and your family.

    They also have a brilliant smarter working policy, too. That means many of their office-based people and some of their site-based people can either work from home or as part of their hybrid model.

    When it comes to diversity and inclusion, our client sees things differently. That's why they're working hard to create an environment where everyone can feel welcome, and where everyone can be themselves. They encourage applications from people of all races, ages, genders, religions, sexual orientations and more - so whoever you are, they hope you'll see things their way, too.

    Apply now

    If you've got what it takes to look at things differently, to find new perspectives, and to discover the extraordinary within the ordinary, our client would love to meet you.
