Developing leaders of the future

Developing people is key to our operational success, with 25% of our leaders progressing through our Graduate Schemes. The Trainee & Apprentice programmes we run are equally as important to closing the skills gap facing the industry.

We build our own talent and develop them on fast track Leadership, Engineering and Commercial schemes and this in turn results in loyal and passionate employees who deliver brilliantly for our contracts. We can demonstrate this approach on our alliance contracts such as S&C, Wessex Capacity Alliance and the Midland Metro Alliance where it produces fantastic results.
