Wolseley Infrastructure, a key distributor to the civils and utilities markets, celebrates talent across the business with apprentice graduations and long-service awards — reinforcing its commitment to investing in people.
First up in the hat-trick of celebrations is the 35th anniversary of Technical Director Neal Lambert at Fusion Utilities — who has worked in over ten different roles throughout his career from Injection Moulding Operative to Branch Manager. Commenting on what kept him at the business throughout the years, Lambert said: “It has to be the company culture: hardworking, loyal, honest and relentless. We have the best people in this industry, and we all work together to maintain this statement.”
Another milestone member is Technical Sales Manager Andrew Taylor who has been with Burdens for almost twenty years. Commenting on his long service, he said: “Being part of this journey is exciting. I started as a Sales Negotiator back in November 2003 and have been consistently offered roles of progression throughout the years as a reward for my continued hard work and loyalty.”
He added: “There is a clear progression plan that allows employees to continue to hone their skillset and take on more responsibility to keep the business and its employees continually evolving.”
And Wolseley Infrastructure is also focused on developing the next generation of talent in the construction industry. Kyle Robinson, Central Operations Co-ordinator, began his journey at Wolseley Infrastructure as an apprentice and has recently won the Customer Support and Administration Apprentice of the Year Award. This award is an example of the initiatives that Wolseley Infrastructure has in place to reward its employees, should they attain a valuable goal or go above and beyond their role.
Commenting on the award win, Robinson said: “It was quite a surreal experience to be fair — it was exhilarating to find out I had won that award. I really think this shows how good the Wolseley Infrastructure apprenticeship system is. The support I have been offered along the way is second to none.”
The nationwide supply chain partners aim to support their employees from the moment they enter the company, right throughout their journey as part of their ongoing commitment to investing in their talent.
