Training (+ IIP)

Our commitment to local communities and good causes shows that we are a business you can believe in. We are also a business that believes in you, and we back it up with investment in training and a real passion for building up your skills, confidence and experience. 

We are growing, and we want you to come with us.

We are an ‘Investors in People’ business. A national accreditation, IIP is given to organisations that can prove they have the very best practices and policies in place for their employees. Earning this award is not easy and involves an in-depth, independent review of how we work.

Driving us towards our goal of building a better society and excelling in everything we do, Investors in People will make us an even stronger business and help us to develop our people to their full potential.

There is plenty to look forward to:

Internal courses

From induction to personal effectiveness and team leadership, we have developed a rage of internal courses to help everybody to do their jobs better and get more from their talents.

Professional qualifications

If you have the ability and talent, and it fits in with your job–and our business–we are happy to support professional study wherever it adds value.

Personal Development Plan

We will work with you to create your very own development plan, which sets you yearly objectives and identifies the training and support you need to achieve them.

Lifelong Learning Initiative

There is more to development than just for your job, and we work in partnership with Usdaw to support the Be Wise Learning Centre. Open to you, your family and friends, the centre gives you access to a variety of courses, programmes and qualifications–either at the centre or local colleges–in subjects as varied as foreign languages (even sign language!) and Digital Photography. And that’s just for starters! The centre can also give you advice on careers, C.V. writing and interviewing skills.
