Current vacancies

There are no available job vacancies at this time. However, if you’re interested in working with us, we’d love to hear from you. Please send us an email to [email protected]

What to expect when you work with us

Our Managing Director meets every new member of staff personally, regardless of your role, as part of the recruitment process. He delivers an induction to all of our operational staff too, and participates in all appraisals and reviews in person. He knows every member of the Mitchell & Dickinson family and, as a result, your skills, your approach to life and your growth potential for the future. He sends out regular newsletters to update our teams on company progress, and how much CO2 we have saved.

Training

Our training is all in-house because of the unique skills and craftsmanship required to insulate listed and period homes in a sympathetic manner to high standards of craftsmanship and thermal efficiency. Regular evaluation and progress reviews with our craftsmen provide career direction as well as training planning and pay reviews.

Our regular appraisal meetings provide an opportunity for open and frank discussions, in which employees evaluate themselves and the company, and identify their needs and goals, hopes and dreams.

Fair pay for a fair day

We believe in fair pay for a fair day. That means that we review our payscales for different roles in the business and benchmark them against national and regional averages and observe national guidelines like the Living Wage.

As we work all over the south of England it also means we keep a close watch on working hours and travel distances to ensure work/life balance. We pay our staff for time travelling to work if they work more than 40 minutes away from home. If they are travelling for more than 1.5 hours to a customer site, then we prefer that they stay in comfortable accommodation. Evening meal expenses are paid upfront. This ensures our staff are safe, happy and relaxed, so they can do a great job for our customers.

Sustainable pensions

We choose Smart for our employee pension scheme. Smart have a sustainable investment fund and a clear carbon reduction plan. If any employee wants to go even further with ethical investments Smart gives them the flexibility to choose.

Equality

Our equal opportunities policy, which is reviewed each year, ensures that everyone regardless of age, sex, gender identification, race or creed is treated equally, in the spirit of mutual respect and trust. Everyone is included. Over 50% of the senior management team are women.

A culture of openness

We actively encourage our staff to tell us what they think, whether they have an idea, or want to make a complaint. We have a clearly defined complaints procedure, but more importantly, the lines of communication from the leadership of the company are so open that any issues can be raised directly with the MD or any other director or manager. Honest and open but considerate communication is the way we do things at Mitchell & Dickinson.

Health and wellbeing

Our recruitment process includes a discussion about personal circumstances, family at home including both animals and humans, mental health and physical health, to identify any support needs from the get-go.

Any signs of stress, mental ill health or any special circumstances at home are picked up by the senior management team. Firstly, to show concern and assess whether any workplace changes need to be made. A customised plan is then put in place to meet the needs of the individual.

Counselling programmes, our Cash Health Plan, Employee Assist Programme, extended leave, yoga or gym memberships, or just a change of working arrangements, including maternity and paternity and compassionate leave, are examples of the tools we call on to maintain harmony and happiness.
