A little bit about us:

Our company purpose and core values are very important to us and they are at the heart of everything we do. The core values set a standard that we all work towards, creating a great work environment and provide our clients with the best service possible.

Company Purpose

To make a real difference to our clients and colleagues.

Core Values

The Client Focus

We ensure that the client’s needs are at the forefront of what we do.

We aim to exceed the client’s expectations and requirements.

We are attentive to detail, reliable and demonstrate expert knowledge.

The Drive to Succeed

Excellence is our minimum standard.

We think before we act, and we make a positive difference.

We are diligent, persistent and resilient.

GazeboThe Golden Rule

We treat everyone as we would wish to be treated.

We are honest and open with colleagues and clients.

Remuneration & Job stability

We know getting paid well is important for our colleagues, because of this we aim to pay in the top bracket for every level within our company.

Furthermore, our colleagues have total clarity on what they need to do to achieve their next wage increase by having clear targets set for them. This way you can progress at a rate that suits you and know you will be rewarded financially for it.

Over the last three years as an average every employee has had their wage increased by 17% Due to our continued growth this has meant that we have never had to let a member of staff leave due to a lack of work. Our team knows that as long as they do a great job, their job is guaranteed.

Training and Development

We want the best people that are highly skilled within their role. To achieve this we know that many of our colleagues like to undertake additional training. This may be in the office with an advanced member of the team or it may even be offsite based in a classroom such as an Apprenticeship. We ensure all training fits with your wants and needs. The objective is always to ensure our colleagues are developed in a way that benefits them and the company. Last year alone we invested over £20,000 on members of our team, achieving qualifications that ranged from level 2 NVQ’s to spraying courses and driving with a trailer on site and many other qualifications.

Work-life Balance

We hate this phrase as it indicates that they are exclusive, we believe that if you enjoy your work that you will actually have a better home life. Just imagine for a moment, you have had a hard day at work, but you have achieved your targets, you feel tired but satisfied you know what the plan is for tomorrow and you feel that it is achievable, the client is happy and your manager is pleased with your progress. You are being paid well, you feel appreciated and you are developing new skills. As such when you get home you will be in a better mindset to be the best at the role you play at home whether that be a mother/father, partner a caregiver or simply a good son/daughter that your parents will be proud of.

We know that at times you will need time to deal with things at home so we aim to be flexible and accommodating with our colleagues. Subsequently, there will be times where we will need you to help us out when things aren’t going perfectly with the job. Working with each other will be a two-way street, where you and the company will both achieve their objectives.
