In today's fast paced, technology driven world, it is reassuring to know that the value of a good employer never goes out of fashion. Crowcon Detection Instruments is proud of its reputation as a good employer. Our culture of openness, trust and fairness is based on mutual respect, promoted and encouraged via a wide range of communication and engagement opportunities.
When choosing a company to work for, most of us are first looking for work that we can do well and will find interesting, then a little job security and ideally somewhere we can develop new skills by building on our existing experience or knowledge to stretch ourselves further.
Crowcon will offer you all of these.
Some employee benefits such as a pension are now commonplace. Others, however, such as company shares that enable us to feel really committed to the commercial success of 'our' business, are less readily available.
While a bonus scheme, linked to organisational performance, which has paid out annually to every UK employee for the last 4 years, is even more unusual. Add this to a business which is growing year on year even through tough economic conditions across the globe, where over 10% of our UK employees are directly involved in new product development, more than 15% have been promoted in the last 12 months alone, and almost 10% of employees each year achieve formal recognised qualifications, in addition to multiple workbased learning opportunities and our in-house mentoring programme, and you start to see what makes Crowcon such a great place to work.
Crowcon Detection Instruments is committed to the recruitment and development of skilled, experienced and knowledgeable employees working collectively to achieve continuous improvement in all activities, across all teams. We seek to create and promote a positive working environment that ensures equality of opportunity for all job applicants, employees and others, as well as valuing diversity between different people and the qualities they bring to the job.
Opportunities to join us come at all levels, from apprentices or production technicians to manufacturing or development engineers. Our employees also work in sales and marketing, finance, IT and purchasing. We recognise that, by creating an agile workforce through open collaboration, training and development, with internal mobility and opportunity for progression, we strengthen our capacity for innovation and will continue to deliver excellent customer service into the future.
With no less than 9 existing employees commencing engineering apprenticeships in 2015, alongside 6 young apprentices recruited since 2013, our commitment to supporting all our employees to achieve their potential is clear. We are proud to have achieved Investors in People accreditation in October 2015.
