Success Stories

Having an engaged workforce where our people feel motivated to fulfil their potential and support our customers is essential to business success. We know our people are our greatest asset and that by looking after them ‘we will be the best in our industry in everything that we do’.

We believe strongly that we should have a diverse workforce that is representative of the communities in which we work, furthermore we are committed to gender equality and we have an active female leadership group.

People really are at the heart of what we do, here is what our people say:

Sharon Carruthers - Service Centre Manager

"I first started working at A-Plant 35 years ago on what was a youth training scheme at the time and I now manage three service centres in Carlisle, Whitehaven and Egremont."

Mandy King - Operations Manager

"All in all I’ve worked at A-Plant for 26 years now and I always say to new starters that you won’t work for a better hire company with such diversity across the business."

Debbie Swales - Contact Centre Manager

"There aren’t many businesses where the CEO and other Board Members would take the time out from their busy schedules to make sure new colleagues joining the business are settling in. It also struck me how many employees have been with A-Plant for 25, 30, 35 years…even more."

Sara Saleh - HR Director

"My career in HR spans over 25 years and I’ve been with A-Plant for coming up to five years. I’ve been involved in a number of exciting projects and initiatives that support our strategic aim to be the best in our industry in everything we do."

Hannah Maddocks - Customer Services Apprentice

"I’ve just started the second year of a customer service apprenticeship and have completed my NVQ Level 2 qualification. I’m based in the FLG Services depot in Liverpool and I love the flexibility that the apprenticeship offers, plus the support that I get from my colleagues."

Grainne Patterson - Talent and Development Manager

“I love engaging with young people and making them aware of the opportunities available in the construction industry. There’s a great deal of diversity in my job role and I’m very fortunate to work alongside colleagues who are passionate about developing a diverse and inclusive talent pipeline into the business."

Mandy King - Operations Manager

"All in all I’ve worked at A-Plant for 26 years now and I always say to new starters that you won’t work for a better hire company with such diversity across the business."

Paige Carter - Fitter

"I completed a three-year Plant Maintenance apprenticeship with A-Plant and in the final year of my apprenticeship I was the first female winner of a national award at the Construction Plant-hire Association’s (CPA) Stars of the Future awards."
