Success Stories

Having an engaged workforce where our people feel motivated to fulfil their potential and support our customers is essential to business success. We know our people are our greatest asset and that by looking after them ‘we will be the best in our industry in everything that we do’.

We believe strongly that we should have a diverse workforce that is representative of the communities in which we work, furthermore we are committed to gender equality and we have an active female leadership group.

People really are at the heart of what we do, here is what our people say:

Paige Carter - Fitter

"I completed a three-year Plant Maintenance apprenticeship with A-Plant and in the final year of my apprenticeship I was the first female winner of a national award at the Construction Plant-hire Association’s (CPA) Stars of the Future awards."

Mandy King - Operations Manager

"All in all I’ve worked at A-Plant for 26 years now and I always say to new starters that you won’t work for a better hire company with such diversity across the business."

Victoria Beeley - Marketing Executive

“I have a really interesting role helping look after the Marketing for a number of Specialist divisions. All the products are different and we target a multitude of sectors, so there’s a huge amount of variety in my job and I get to meet lots of people across the business and further afield."

Hannah Maddocks - Customer Services Apprentice

"I’ve just started the second year of a customer service apprenticeship and have completed my NVQ Level 2 qualification. I’m based in the FLG Services depot in Liverpool and I love the flexibility that the apprenticeship offers, plus the support that I get from my colleagues."

Sharon Carruthers - Service Centre Manager

"I first started working at A-Plant 35 years ago on what was a youth training scheme at the time and I now manage three service centres in Carlisle, Whitehaven and Egremont."

Debbie Swales - Contact Centre Manager

"There aren’t many businesses where the CEO and other Board Members would take the time out from their busy schedules to make sure new colleagues joining the business are settling in. It also struck me how many employees have been with A-Plant for 25, 30, 35 years…even more."
