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 through the whole of the business. Covering regions such as the South East, North West and Scotland my client is very well covered across the UK, working on projects that cover Multi-utilities, 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.

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, 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.
