At Wainwright, we understand that our people are our greatest asset. That is why we invest in the training and development of our team, and strive to provide a friendly, supportive and stimulating working environment.

Thanks to our 125-year history, we have a strong sense of tradition. But we’re by no means stuck in the past. We believe that the only way to succeed is to embrace new opportunities, grow our business, and look to the future.

“When I joined Wainwright in the 1980s, it had a strong reputation for looking after its workforce. My own career with the company is an indication of the opportunities available, but I’m by no means the only one to have enjoyed progression while working here.

A number of our team have been with us for 25 years or more, enjoying varied challenges and roles that make best use of their developing skills and experience.

Even more striking are the examples of people who spent their entire working lives at Wainwright. These include Lennie Treasure and John Smith, who joined the company in the 1960s and stayed with us for nearly 50 years.

This reflects the strong ethos of support and encouragement that sets Wainwright apart from its competitors. I’m proud of our commitment to our people, which is rewarded time and again by their creativity, loyalty and passion for our business.”
