Progressive and ambitious business with well defined strategy. Demanding but rewarding experience.
Group Risk Manager (Former Employee) – Corby – 9 December 2014
A fast paced environment with expectations of high quality and quick turnaround. The rewards were good as were the opportunities to participate in a wide range and variety of disciplines and topics; all in all a good environment for personal development if that is your driver.
Like most organisations, the business has a 'composite culture' between operational businesses and senior management levels. This was however less pronounced than in most other businesses of my experience, and I would say this is a positive point for the organisation.
Working hours and travel demands could be high and occasionally these could become unrealistic and so 'push-back' was necessary in order to maintain a healthy work-life balance.
In summary, a dynamic business that I enjoyed working for. It usually succeeds in what it sets out to achieve, and it tries to do the 'right thing' for its stakeholders. It does however make mistakes but it is my experience that it is quick to learn from these and adapt accordingly.
Ambitious, well organised, positive reputation, recognised name
Long hours, work-life balance
