If you’re just coming into the job market, or perhaps considering a change of scene, then G&T might be the place for you. To find the perfect fit and be truly happy in the workplace it is often the culture and values of a firm that are most important, rather than just looking at the job spec for the role you are after. Taking an all-round view of your potential new employer will help you make your next career move a great success. Read on to find out the top five reasons why G&T is a great place to build your career…
G&T is a privately owned business and one of the last remaining of its scale within our industry. Whilst we are proud of our 180 year heritage, we are equally proud of the autonomy and flexibility our private status gives us to adapt and change with the times. We listen and respond to the market and adapt to industry demands. We are progressive and innovative as a business backed up by a successful legacy, constantly evolving whilst maintaining our position as leaders within our field.
Our Projects and Clients
Our projects speak for themselves. G&T is a trusted advisor on some of the largest and most exciting schemes across the world, working with a wide range of clients. We believe in building relationships and offer a bespoke service to our clients built on trust. The large majority of our work comes from repeat business with key clients whom we have a long-standing relationship and who value our knowledge and expertise as trusted partners.
The Variety of Work
Here at G&T, we have a firm identity. We offer first class consulting services across cost consultancy and project management in addition to complementary specialist services. Our projects range across a wide variety of sectors including residential, commercial, mixed-use and retail as well as education, hotels, leisure and major projects.
We Take your Career Development Seriously
We recognise the career development of our employees is at the heart of our success and as a result we invest in our people and their development. Our Chartership Programme is highly acclaimed and our success rate for supporting people through their APC is one of the best in the industry.
We believe that the opportunity for career development should never stop. We therefore offer everyone the chance to develop a carefully considered, tailored career development plan and we are fully supportive of each and every employee to ensure their ambition to grow as a professional is nurtured and their potential reached.
Our People Culture
Our people-focused culture means we offer employees the best of both worlds; the bells and whistles you would expect of a company of our size balanced by the intimacy of being a part of a smaller team where every member counts. Our open plan seating arrangement on each floor means no hot desking, our inter-team collaboration provides a strong network of support and encouragement and partners are hands-on and accessible to every member of the organisation.
G&T has a lively social scene including several sporting teams, social events throughout the year and an annual afternoon Christmas lunch for every team. Check out some of our YouTube videos to find out more.
However we do realise, it’s not all about being at the office. G&T has above the average industry holiday allowance with 27 days plus Christmas shutdown and not including bank holidays. We also get a £250 health and leisure allowance, additional last Friday of the month early finishes and 4pm closing before bank holidays, so employees’ quality time with family and friends need not be sacrificed.
