What’s in it for me
Working the Robertson Way
Joining us isn’t just about seeing things our way. It’s also about working the Robertson Way too, by bringing our 5 guiding principles to life. Here’s what that means…
Listening enables us to work positively and collaboratively, and gives customers, partners and colleagues the assurance that their voices are always heard.
We are professional
Our mix of prudence and diligence, care and attention to detail means that our customers have certainty and assurance in everything we do and trust us to deliver.
We take responsibility
Each of us is accountable for what we do. From the smallest detail to team safety and caring for our communities and the environment, we know that everything matters.
We are determined to succeed
Every challenge is an opportunity. We work collaboratively and focus on safety, productivity and quality to find solutions we can be proud of and that provide a positive, lasting benefit.
We are one team
We work as one – in our teams and partnerships, and with our customers. We respect each contribution, and everyone stands up to be counted. We are Team Robertson.
In return, we offer a wide range of rewards and benefits, including 33 days annual leave, a great pension and valuable life assurance. What’s more, you’ll also be able to make the most of a range of brilliant extras. These include our Cycle to Work Scheme, discounts at restaurants and cinemas with a Taste Card, annual flu vaccine, and Health & Wellbeing and Life Management Support for you and your family.
We also have a brilliant smarter working policy, too. That means many of our office-based people and some of our site-based people are able to either work from home or as part of our hybrid model.
When it comes to diversity and inclusion, we see things differently at Robertson. That’s why we’re working hard to create an environment where everyone can feel welcome, and where we can all be ourselves. We encourage applications from people of all races, ages, genders, religions, sexual orientations and more – so whoever you are, we hope you’ll see things our way, too.
If you’ve got what it takes to look at things differently, to find new perspectives, and to discover the extraordinary within the ordinary, we’d love to meet you. To apply for this role and to start seeing things our way, submit your CV on our careers site.
This role will be subject to pre-employment screening, including references. The level of screening may vary depending on role responsibilities and will be discussed at interview.
