Our Teams

HR operations - You’ll work in a designated area of the business and become the expert HR support for those colleagues. A hugely diverse range of opportunities and experience are what you’ll get in this team, as our business is so broad in terms of our areas of work, it’s the old cliché ‘no two days are the same’ (but they really aren’t!). Our business partners are passionate, empowered HR professionals who offer support whilst also being supported themselves, to ensure all colleagues are working in a safe environment with opportunities to progress and develop within the business.

Learning and development – The salary, rewards and benefits are the bread and butter of working life, but we want to offer you so much more. Our highly experienced learning and development team are constantly working to ensure we’re able to offer training and qualifications opportunities for those who are keen to progress. A brilliant example of the drive and dedication of this team is the development of our National Skills and Safety Park, where operational colleagues can learn and acquire new qualifications in a safe, secure environment – take a look here.

Reward and performance – The team everyone wants to make friends with – we wonder why?! Our dedicated reward and performance team work flexibly to ensure we’re able to cater for the different needs and requirements of the different colleagues we have in our business.
