Water & Civil Engineering

About the company:

My client is a family-owned company turning over £280M. Six members of the family still work for the company within different regions, this results in the family identity being maintained throughout the whole of the company. Covering regions such as the South East, Midland, North East, North West, and Scotland my client is very well covered across the UK, working on projects that cover Multi-utilities, Water, Rail, and Civil Engineering. Their head office is based in Hertfordshire with beautiful views looking over the Herts countryside making it a really nice environment to work in.

Training and development is a huge part of their culture, they have a programme put in place to help all members of staff grow and they want to help bring the best out of all their staff – something I have seen first-hand.

Being one of the leading names within Utilities and Civil Engineering, the client has a low turnover of staff. People like to stay at this company for a long time because of the high standards of work they set and the huge opportunities within the company to progress, develop and grow.

My client has landed a few huge contracts with the likes of HS2, Anglian Water, Thames Water, and UKPN. This is due to the standard of work they produce and because of their huge diversity programme. Diversity is something they take very seriously and something they like to involve within the company culture; a concept that is brilliant to see within the modern construction industry.
