By continuing to develop skills and capability, we can maintain a world class, high performing business. It’s a fundamental part of our philosophy and one that embraces everyone who joins us.
Your personal development is very important – in terms of fulfilling your full potential and delivering value to our business. Our comprehensive programme will support your learning every step of the way. The sky is the limit!
The Employee handbook has been produced to help you understand how this large and complex organisation is managed and how this affects you.
These take place on a formal basis at least twice a year, in addition to an annual performance appraisal. You’ll also meet with your manager on a one-to-one basis, to review your performance and recognise your achievements. Together, you’ll plan your future goals and identify development opportunities.
You’ll have access to a variety of in-house training, as well as relevant external conferences and training that supports your continuous professional development. And in line with your agreed development plan, we will make sure you have all the support that you need to undertake and complete any qualifications.
These are important to you and to the company as a whole. As part of our employment benefits, you may qualify for membership funding of relevant professional bodies. Our training and development is accredited by a number of professional bodies including: RSC, IOP, IET, IMechE, IChemE, IoM3, CIPD, ACCA, CIMA and CIM.
It’s part of a pledge of support we make to every employee who wants to develop specialist or management skills. Whatever route your career takes, we will encourage you to continually develop your skills. You will also have the opportunity to move round the organisation if you wish. Our aim is to be your long-term career partner – a partnership that gives you all the encouragement and opportunities you need to further your professional and personal development.
