Swire Energy Services is proud to be part of the John Swire & Sons Group who are the owner of many international companies with employees of different religious and political beliefs, races, cultures, nationalities, ages, sexual orientations and physical abilities.
It is our policy to provide an environment free from any form of discrimination against our employees, customers or clients, all are entitled to be treated with respect and dignity.
We believe in equal opportunities for all our employees and recognise that our businesses benefit from the diversity of our people.
Investment in our Human Capital
Our people are recruited and promoted based on merit. We believe in creating an environment where people feel comfortable at work and able to realise their full potential.
Onboarding is key to our success in retaining our employees we provide comprehensive induction programmes that include; history of our company, product training, a “day in the yard” or “day in the office” experience.
Feedback from our new joiners include “family culture”, “supportive”, “approachable at all levels”.
Developing our people to be the best of their potential is an ongoing commitment from our Company.
Our development/career opportunities include apprenticeships, on-the-job training, cross functional training, mentoring and coaching.
Apprenticeships - investing in apprentices supports our long-term success of the business along with addressing the skills shortage and supporting our local communities. We have found that not only our apprentices and business gain from the apprenticeship, our experienced employees are also empowered by enabling them to share their experience and knowledge.
