Careers, not just jobs

Nurturing people and helping them to grow both professionally and personally is at the heart of our approach to ensuring every one of our colleagues flourishes. Having developed our learning and development programme over many years, we believe it’s one of the best.

The training we provide is tailored according to each colleague’s role and centres on developing the skills that will help them achieve their own goals and ambitions. This covers a host of areas, including leadership development, sales training and digital skills development, alongside “softer” social and personal effectiveness skills.

Because learning and development is an integral aspect of each of our colleagues’ roles, we have gone to great lengths to ensure the process is as easy-to-access and transparent as possible.

Mental health and wellbeing

We understand that a happy working life is one of the biggest contributors to good mental health. All of our colleagues can take part in annual mental health sessions, provided by local organisation Pennine Health Services, and these are backed up by year-round availability of internal and external support, which is clearly signposted to our people in a range of ways across the business.

We also provide support for colleagues’ financial and physical wellbeing in the form of free sessions with financial experts as well as a regular roster of events including First-Aid training, team-building days, yoga and physiotherapy visits.

We also have a dedicated team of 16 mental health first aiders who play an active role in supporting our colleagues. They continue to now do this remotely, offering one-to-one support and guidance to professional services within our region.
