A career at Metcor will challenge you to realise your potential. A key component to this is that we give teams the right training and development, from apprenticeships to technical training with suppliers, from safety certificates to internationally recognised management programmes. We invest considerably to help our people realise their career ambitions.

What we provide

Metcor’s benefits packages help our employees to enhance their earnings, invest in their futures, and protect their families. We also recognise that a sense of purpose and community is vital in today’s workplace. Our team events, charitable activities and group learning opportunities provide our team with shared experiences and a strong sense of team spirit.

For support staff and managers, we are equally rigorous at providing professional development opportunities. Recent examples include:

  • Management training
  • Presentation workshops
  • Health and safety qualifications such as IOSH and NEBOSH
  • Customer service training
  • Mental health responder training

Long service awards

It is a testament to our company culture that we have a number of engineers, office staff and managers who have worked for over twenty years at Metcor Group companies. We love to recognise work anniversaries, and for those who reach the twenty year milestone, we provide £1,000 as a tax-free gift. We also link benefits to length of service, with employees gaining additional days of annual leave after completing 3 years’ service.

Real Living Wage employment

We adhere to the Living Wage Foundation’s standard by paying a Real Living Wage to all our employees. As well as doing social good, this initiative ensures all our people feel motivated and productive at work.

For those in trainee roles, who are trying to establish themselves in their careers, we want to help them to manage cost of living, so that they can focus on and enjoy their work, without unnecessary financial pressures.
