Working with us
We pride ourselves on being a company that people want to work with, and for, and have built a reputation for quality and excellence across the construction industry and beyond.
We owe our success to the diverse skills and expertise of our people and are committed to investing in their personal and professional development and supporting them to thrive through our dedicated Poole Dick training academy, training opportunities, initiatives and more.
Our people are our priority. We have developed a clear vision for the future of Poole Dick in partnership with the whole team and want to bring enthusiastic, talented, like-minded people with us on this journey and support them to succeed.
The Poole Dick academy
Our Poole Dick training Academy was established as part of our commitment to investing in our employees and apprentices, and their professional development. It combines the technical aspects of people’s professional development, alongside a focus on wellbeing and life skills.
A unique blend of expertise and professionalism in ISO/RICS technical training by senior employees is mixed with learnings around sustainability, finance, health, wellbeing and other skills such as ‘Appropriate Assertiveness in EA Roles’, ‘Delivering Teams Meetings and ‘Time Management’ etc.
We invest in our people and are here to support them through all aspects of their professional development and training.
As well as helping them become construction experts, we want them to grow into confident, well rounded professionals who can make a positive difference in our industry. That’s why we also emphasise the importance of skills such as persuasion, negotiation, emotional intelligence and the ability to adapt to different situations.
We actively promote a supportive culture that encourages people to work confidently and collaboratively. This positive environment makes it possible for us to solve the complex challenges involved in any construction project and work together to share knowledge and devise innovative solutions.
Internal recognition and rewards
We actively encourage the recognition and celebration of employee contributions and behaviours at all levels. As a reward for your hard work, we will organise fun social events such as meals-out, office drinks and sport, leisure and other activities.
We are delighted that the Poole Dick Academy has been recognised by various external bodies such as Constructing Excellence (National People Development Award) and Investors in People (Gold Award holders since 2015).
Active involvement in our company’s direction
Our entire team has been consulted on and contributed to Poole Dick’s Vision, Mission, Values and Objectives. Our annual company strategy conference offers valuable opportunities to check and re-set our agreed course, as one team.
