We believe Wolseley UK is a great place to work. We offer our employees industry-leading benefits and recently won Personnel Today’s Employee Benefits award. We have also been recognised by Professional Pensions, who awarded us Pension Scheme of the Year. We grow our own people and invest in our employees, and our work in this area has been rewarded with a Personnel Today Award for Talent Management.
Innovation is vital to us and in 2008 we opened the UK’s first commercial sustainable product showcase and renewables training facility, which has since hosted tens of thousands of visitors.
We uphold high environmental standards and showcase the renewable technology that we sell, such as the installation of 8,000 solar panels on our National Distribution Centre. We also strive for quality: our international and industry recognised certification includes OHSAS18001, ISO 14001 certification, ISO 9001 certification, Timber Chain of Custody certification and Achilles Building Confidence.
As a leading UK distributor, we don’t settle for second best and our newly opened distribution centre in Measham is world class, as recognised by the SHD Logistics Awards. All five of our distribution centres feature cutting edge warehouse technology, helping us to deliver products to our customers when they need them most.
We support our local communities with a number of charity initiatives and we recently won the National Mentoring Consortium’s New Employer of the Year award for our work with black and ethnic minority students.
