These four areas sum up how we reward our people and what it’s like to work at Amey Consulting.

Being healthy - Our people come first and we want them to be fit, well and safe. So, we have a robust well-being ethos and actively engage on anything that might undermine well-being. We’re committed to a healthy work-life balance and aim to empower our people with the flexibility they need to achieve their life goals. Creating better places must be delivered in a safe environment, where zero harm is the goal. We aim to do this better than anyone else.

Committing to better - We commit to making things a little better every day, whether in small steps or big leaps. So, we provide the development, support and freedom necessary to help us all become the better. We promote innovation and since good ideas can come from anywhere, we provide forums for debate, idea generation and feedback. Creating better can sometimes mean making bold decisions and we support people to do the right thing.

Embracing different – We’re a diverse business of individuals, but very much one team. We know that different makes us better and that we must do more to support and celebrate diversity. We’re determined to be the example others admire. We aim to be flexible and meet the needs of different people at different life stages. And because of the size of our business we also offer the opportunities for mobility across the business and new and varied experiences.

Giving back - Creating better places for people, we naturally put people first. It starts with looking out for one another, providing the benefits and opportunities that make life better at work and home. We’re committed to sustainability and actively support our people in giving back too. If our teams raise money for charity, we match their donation. It’s about leaving behind a positive footprint, making a change for the better. Caring about the communities where we work. Feeling good about what we do every day.
