There are many reasons to relish working at Wainwright. Here are some of the highlights, as identified by our staff.
Our wages compare favourably to other companies in our industry. Just ask our employees.
We make a generous contribution to staff pensions, and invest in training and development. We’re also quick to reward good performance, both financially and through recognition.
Look around our workplace and you’ll see people who have grown with the business. Where you start is not what matters to us. It’s where you’re going that counts.
If you want to enhance your CV and improve your prospects, as well as developing your knowledge and skills, we’ll help you garner the right qualifications. With our support, Wainwright employees have completed NVQs, BTECs, undergraduate and postgraduate degrees, and apprenticeships, as well as securing memberships and fellowships with leading industry associations such as the Institute of Quarrying, the Mineral Products Association, and the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development.
If there’s one thing that everyone agrees on, it is that Wainwright provides a uniquely warm working environment. For example, we celebrate landmark birthdays among our staff, reward long service, set up regular social events and engage in a variety of charitable activities. In short, it’s a lovely place to be, where staff feel nurtured, valued and appreciated. That’s why so many of our team stay with us for the long haul. They think of Wainwright as their home.
While we expect commitment and dedication from our staff, we appreciate that life is demanding, and sometimes throws up the unexpected. Wherever possible, we flex around your needs, ensuring a healthy work-life balance, and the freedom to respond to other demands on your time. We see it as part of our duty of care.
This is the central principle on which Wainwright’s ethos is founded. When it comes to our staff – and our customers and partners, as it happens – we do the right thing. Because that’s what it means to put people first.
