A typical day working at Carillion consisted on obtaining client documents allowing them to continue on with their business polices insurances etc.
This job role taught me how to be patient with clients, having to chase clients who may not have the right documents on numerous occasions. Or some clients not wishing to send over documents for legal or financial matters.
Management apart of our department was amazing teaching me great communication skills and people handling skills. This job role taught me the importance of rules and regulations, that are needed to be abided to do a job successfully.
The most enjoyable part of this job was that It was my first occupation and thankfully I gained a great amount of knowledge and confidence moving forward for my future.

Working at carillion is a good place to learn from start they let you have a go at the bricklaying but you also get good experience from site which carillion centre does not tell you everything you need to know but site will make you learn everything the ins and outs
I miss Carillion. Great working environment, great staff and all rules and reg's adhered to. Lots of work to complete. Always had backing and support from management
Then the bubble burst!..company went into receivership and all of us made unemployed
Not a nice place to work but I enjoyed it as I worked within a great team! Shame the management didn't care more about their staff. Always felt that nobody really knew what they were doing and that there was a blame culture rife within the organisation.
Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?

Hospital Porter (Former Employee) - James Cook University Hospital - 15 November 2019
I wouldn't recommend this company to anyone. Too many chiefs and not enough indians. You don't know who the bosses are always looking over your shoulder. If you do anything wrong the Management are straight into the Supervisors office to report you and your Supervisor has to call you in.
It might be waiting for a meal to come out of the kitchen but because your stood waiting for this meal to get warmed up it's your fault. No No.
Working for Carillion was the highlight of my carear, I cude not ask for a better bunch of colleges. I was a bata inputer and time sheet anelist.
Also inducted new staff and orderd IT equipment and soft ware so that they cude start work on the day of arrivel.
I help colleges with IT problems. And run the office when the office manager was out of the office. Booked meeting rooms and refreshments.
Never the same day with a consistent changing of priorities in order to maintain the business.
Working capital driven business that placed management in the difficult position of profit & cash maximisation whilst maintaining client satisfaction - which was practically impossible to marry.
I was only working here for half a year and I enjoyed working with the team I was in. Despite being temp staff, they always made me feel welcome. Benefits and pay were adequate, although ultimately there was a lot of layoffs due to the area office closing down.
Great environment and awesome experience!
Great benefits, learning, opportunities and overall vision.
My colleagues were all very professional and ready to support each other. Great collaboration and successful teams.
