Carillion offers plenty of opportunities. With over 46,000 employees, ours is a business whose work touches almost every area of life.
What does this mean for you? Simply, that there’s plenty of scope here for you to learn, grow and try new things. The size and scale of Carillion means you can pursue your own unique path.
Your work will always be worthwhile too.
Whether we’re constructing a landmark building, financing a new motorway or keeping a hospital clean, our business is all about improving lives. Our standards are high as well – as shown by our awards in everything from customer service and health and safety to civil engineering and sustainability.
Just as we benefit society, we’re good to our own people too. Here are just some of the ways you can expect to be supported.
Flexible working doesn’t just enable our employees to balance their work and personal lives. It enhances our productivity.
That’s why we encourage it wherever it’s possible and feasible. Many of our office-based workers, for instance, have adopted agile working methods – whether it’s working at home one day a week or sharing their job with a colleague.
We’re equally flexible and understanding when it comes to maternity too. Likewise, we also have provisions for partners to take additional leave too.
A career with Carillion is rewarding in more ways than one. As well as the chance to do meaningful work, you can typically expect to enjoy:
- Competitive salary
- Generous holiday entitlement
- Pension scheme
- Private health insurance
- Carillion ‘Thank you’ scheme, which offers flexible, tax efficient benefits such as childcare vouchers, cycle to work scheme and discounts on High Street brands.
Training and development
Providing better prospects for our people is at the heart of our strategy to enable everyone to fulfil their potential.
By up-skilling our employees and having clear career paths we empower our people to take ownership of their development.
We are constantly refreshing learning and development offerings to all our employees including, amongst others, a wide range of structured learning programmes that take account of all learning styles and methods.
Giving something back
As part of our sustainability agenda, we’ll actively encourage you to give something back to your community. Our employees can apply for up to six paid volunteering days each year.
These will enable you to build networks with other parts of the business as well as make a real difference to your local community.
Supporting our armed forces
Carillion is committed to supporting our armed forces. That’s why we’ve partnered with the MOD to actively encourage employees who wish to become Reservists.
In fact, we’re aiming for a target of 300 Carillion Reservists by 2016.
For you, it’s an opportunity to truly transform your spare time. Reservists come from all backgrounds, regions and jobs; they are ordinary men and women who give up their time to train and serve alongside the Regular Forces.
They are called out to supplement the Regular Forces whenever operational demands require it. If they are mobilised, they will carry out the same roles to the same high standards as their Regular counterparts. They also receive the same world-class training and develop the same skills, including leadership, team work and project management skills.
