Values

Our Company values not only shape the identity of our organisation, they also guide and inspire all our people.

We put our people at the very centre of our business, which is why our employees were asked to help establish our Company values.

Our values are who we are, what we stand for, and how we behave.

Safe


We structure our work environment, so that every person feels safe, enabled to create their best work and achieve their maximum potential. We work smartly, take care of our team, and have fun in order to ensure the sustainability and success of our business and the wellbeing of our people.

Trust


We believe the trust we place in our people will lift us all higher than we could rise alone. We operate and communicate with transparency and it is this authenticity that makes our work more meaningful, interesting and builds a better company. We stay true to who we are, stand up for what we believe in, and are always mindful of others.

Respect


Inclusion and respect are a defining part of our identity. We value the talent, time and contribution of everyone we work with. Our differences – when embraced – drive smarter decisions, stronger performance, increased innovation and a culture where everyone can be themselves.

Challenge


We have the courage and curiosity to find new ways of pushing the boundaries, paving the way to genuine learning and improvement. We seek, accept and give feedback fearlessly to continue to grow personally and professionally. Your colleagues should be your toughest critics, your biggest challengers and your loudest supporters!

Deliver


We take every opportunity to go the extra-mile and rise to the occasion. Our passion
for progress means we give uncompromising attention to impact and excellence. We ask our people to be resourceful, efficient and above all, make us proud. Our driver is recognition and celebration of a successful outcome for all. Relationships deliver results. Together we are stronger!

Hear what our teams say

It really is an amazing experience working for DG, both with the team and a very supportive mentor. The culture and working environment helped big time in overcoming the challenges following my move from the Middle East. I feel good working for projects in different sectors which help me to reach my personal and professional goals whilst giving the best output to achieve the company’s overall goal.

I have had a pleasure of working in Designer Group for 4 years now. Working as the Estimating Administrator, every day is different and involves a big range of duties which I love. During my work with DG I have bought a house and had a baby, and I had lots of support and understanding. I like working with professionals and communicating with intelligent people, as well as having access to training and encouragement for development. The social events, rewards and pleasant environment also make it a nice place to work. Thank you for the opportunity to work at Designer Group and for giving me the ability to express myself personally and professionally.

I couldn’t be happier at DG. I have had the opportunity to make new friendships, develop my career, and I have worked on amazing projects gaining a vast amount of industry experience in a short space of time! I really enjoy the working culture and the multicultural environment where everyone is treated equally. This in turn creates a positive, productive and successful company to work for, and I look forward to many more successful years ahead!

Social committee

It is all about balance. We spend a large amount of our time at work and so it is important we all get to have a bit of fun every now and again!

Whilst our teams continue to work hard throughout the year, there are plenty of opportunities for you to take a break from the working environment, to let off some steam and have a little fun.

Our social committee volunteers regularly co-ordinate social events for our teams, giving our people the opportunity to let their hair down and get to know each other.

Happy teams are healthier, more enthusiastic, more collaborative, and more productive.

Employee recognition

Retaining our talent and recognising those who have provided their expertise to the Company for a large part of their career is important to us. That is why we reward our employee’s excellence with an annual staff awards programme for going ‘above and beyond’ in the workplace.

These awards foster a sense of belonging and honour friendships and contributions over time. Our CEO and MD host an annual awards ceremony to celebrate the winners’ commitment to the business.

Our employees are also recognised monthly for their proactive safety behaviours on site. This ensures the highest standard of health and safety, keeping it at the forefront of everything we do.

Join our team and be part of our legacy. We want to recruit, train, and retain the smartest minds and will commit to building you a sustainable future and a rewarding career.
