Our People

We take pride in attracting the industry’s brightest minds to form our distinct perspectives. It’s their diverse set of skills, personalities and experiences that makes us the multi-award winning UKWSL; It’s also why we’re one of the UK’s leading waste management brokers.

Our people interact with customers daily, quite unlike most other companies. Our teams are trusted and respected. They take great pride in the work they do.

As a responsible employer, we’re genuinely committed to broadening access to a career in the professional services industry and being a part of creating a diverse workforce for the future.

“As a family owned business, we believe that employing locally is vital to our success. We don’t want staff to have to travel hours every day, back and forth from the office. We’re proud of the fact that 78% of our team live within 25 miles of our offices.

One of the best ways we can reduce trave is through flexible working solutions. We don’t have a mentality of doing things the same old way; instead we embrace the opportunities technology provides. Many of our staff have opted for one of our flexi-working solutions, this could be reduced hours, condensed days, starting earlier or finishing later, or just working from home. We want to reduce unnecessary stress and the chance of staff feeling the need for a ‘duvet day’. We have numerous progressive programs promoting mental health and a healthy body, healthy mind attitude.”
