Our Culture

Rsz _jewson -fb _timeline _pic1

Our aim is to be the best timber and builders' merchant in the eyes of our customers, and people are at the heart of our business. We're committed to keeping them safe and healthy, making sure they feel valued, and providing them with the personal development and career opportunities they need.

It starts with recruiting the right people - from different walks of life with different experiences, outlooks and talents to share. This helps us relate better to our customers, so we can meet their needs. We work hard to attract the widest candidate pool, and we simply hire the best person for the job - and if flexible working is required, we might hire the best two people for the job!

Having a diverse workforce is about generating great ideas and reflecting our diverse customer base. It makes us better at what we do and makes us a better place to work. We've not only seen the number of female employees rise but more women now hold senior positions in the company; we're welcoming talent from both ends of the age spectrum and people from a variety of different origins and cultures who bring a wealth of experience. We've made a good start, but we're still working on making our culture as diverse as possible.

It's important that we look after every single person. Health and safety is our number one priority - the basic duty of care we owe everyone is that they go home safe and sound, happy and healthy every day. We have robust health and safety processes in place, targets to work to and a friendly ear ready if anybody needs support or advice.

We check how we're doing as an employer through company-wide employee surveys, customer questionnaires and other feedback forums. We listen to what our people have to say and we act on the results. Jewson is the place it is today because of the people who work here and what they have to say on the place of work they want it to be.

We're open to people who want to drive change. If this sounds like you, come on in and make a difference.
