As part of the Laing O’Rourke group, one of the world’s leading engineering and construction companies, we work hard to create an environment that brings out the best in our people.
Challenging you to achieve your ambitions
We think people should enjoy what they do. That’s why we believe in building careers – not just creating jobs. We work with all our people to help them make the most of their talents. Through on-the-job learning, we’ll make sure you’re stretching yourself that little bit further every day. All staff have access to our broad-ranging training and development programmes which will give you the skills to take on evermore challenging roles.
Giving you job satisfaction
Our people are among the most passionate and committed in the industry. How do we know this? Because every year, through our staff survey, we track ‘employee engagement’ levels - and every year, without fail, we rank among the highest of any global company. Our employee engagement score is essentially a measure of how satisfied our people are in their jobs. For this reason, we see it as a direct reflection of how well we’re performing as an employer.
Embracing new ideas
One of our most unique characteristics is our open, democratic culture. We’re a forward-thinking company – and we don’t stand on ceremony. So no matter who you are or what you do, if you’ve got a good idea, we want to hear about it. If you’ve found a better way of doing things, tell us.
Seeking your views
We believe communication should be two-way – and we want our people share their views. Through regular ‘employee roadshows’ you’ll have the opportunity to quiz our business leaders about the things that matter to you. We also run an annual staff survey, where you can rate us on a range of issues. If you think we can do better, let us know and we’ll address it.
Putting our people first
We always put our people first – especially when it comes to health and safety. Nothing is more important to us than your wellbeing. Before every single thing we do, we ask ourselves ‘is it safe’. If it’s not, we simply won’t do it.
Broadening your horizons
CHt is part of an international business, and you could have the chance to interact with colleagues from all over the world. We also monitor our employees’ skills and experience closely so that, as prospects in new markets and sectors arise, those who are keen to broaden their horizons have the opportunity to do so.
