Working for Us
We foster an environment where our people can thrive, by providing them with the support and tools needed to develop their careers.
Our dedication for supporting individual development is reflected in our exceptional rate of longstanding staff, who have grown their careers at calfordseaden, while working at the forefront of industry advances on a range of exciting projects.
Our passion for our people has recognised by the prestigious Investors in People (IiP) who have awarded us the Silver accreditation.
Our brilliant team consists of individuals who are willing to go the extra mile to deliver the best results and are ultimately why our clients choose to work with us time and time again.
We’re dedicated to constant learning and invest in the professional development of all team members at every level, after all, the whole company shares in your success.
Our aim is to realise the potential in every individual so we provide the support to make sure that happens. The training provided ranges from our programme of in-house CPD seminars, delivered by industry leaders, support for Assessment of Professional Competence (APC) right through to sponsorship to study for a PhD.
Don’t just take our word for it, here’s what some of our team have to say about their experience.
Being able to study and work within the same role allows me to gain much more experience through hands on training in the construction industry and helps me to develop a wider understanding of how the business works.
From the very start, I have felt extremely supported by the team at calfordseaden. Through experiencing the positive team dynamic, I have felt encouraged to put myself forward and support them in return. It truly is a team effort.
I am proud to be part of such a collaborative and committed team. I look forward to continuing our work in delivering sustainable solutions that provide a positive and lasting impact to the communities we work in.
Empowering young people to take responsibility for their own development, whilst providing a career path, training, and support, helps us maintain our culture of continuous improvement, which is mutually beneficial to everyone.
The calfordseaden Health & Safety team is a very diverse team, particularly in terms of career level and gender. I think this lends to a positive and effective working environment that fosters collaboration and diversity of thought.
From the start of my career, I have had the opportunity to work with our Equity Partners on a daily basis. Having access to that level of experience and expertise at that stage in my career was invaluable to my progression.
We know that by looking after our employees we will attract and keep the best people.
That is why we offer a competitive salary and benefits package. We also provide a generous holiday allowance, so you can let off steam, and for that extra bit of flexibility, you even have the option to take extra holiday. Recognising that one size doesn’t necessarily fit all we try to cater to everyone’s needs. That’s why we supply childcare vouchers and free eye tests and offer staff pension and life assurance scheme, discretionary company car and private medical insurance schemes.
Having fun is an integral part of working for calfordseaden.
That’s why we have our very own Sports and Social Team who arrange events and activities that bring the whole company together. In addition to the annual summer BBQ and Christmas party, the team has also arranged theatre trips, restaurant events and for the more active among us, activities such as go-karting, snowboarding and even bubble football! We also hold regular office charity events, so you can feel good about giving something back whilst having fun!
