Our Culture

Our culture is one of collaboration and community. We’re strong believers in putting community first, with our Colleges and Business Units working in partnership to deliver the transformation their locality wants and needs.

We want colleagues to be able to be ensure their roles fits into their lives seamlessly and actively encourage and empower staff to adopt flexible working approaches. We also promote our home working policy that allows colleagues to work remotely on a regular basis, giving them the opportunity to save money and time on travelling into one of our sites. Another key part of our culture is our commitment to celebrating staff successes, cascading best practice and commending those who go above and beyond to deliver a great result for those we work with. We believe that if you do a great job, you should be rewarded for it.

Our Group is passionate about behaving responsibility towards the environment and take our commitment to carbon neutrality seriously. Alongside a range of initiatives to cut down on our footprint, we’re active in leading this agenda within the communities we serve, advocating on the climate emergency and promoting this work to our corporate partners. We care because there’s only one planet and we have to focus our efforts on ensuring it’s safeguarded for everyone’s future.

We’re proud that our staff body is representative of the communities we serve, and we’ve been champions of driving social action within them, helping to deliver positive changes across them. We are committed to equal opportunities and celebrate the diversity of staff and students.

As users of the disability confident scheme, we guarantee to interview all disabled applicants who meet the minimum criteria for a vacancy and are proud to offer a working environment that gives opportunities to all.

As part of our core belief in ESG we also commit ourselves to empowering staff to take time out to deliver social actions that will make a positive impact on their community. This gives colleagues the opportunity to live our corporate values and do something wonderful for those around them. We do this through our ‘My 10 Days’ initiative.
