People

We are a Bristol-based employer with over 110 years experience within the industry and a dedicated, professional workforce. We are committed to driving a sustainable business that is both commercially successful and socially and environmentally responsible. This includes providing our employees with a safe and healthy working environment and having an organisational culture which promotes diversity, inclusivity, personal development and respect. Many of our staff joined the company as apprentices and through support from the management team, are today working as Site Managers and Supervisors on some of our most prestigious construction projects. We believe in offering all employees the opportunity to develop their professional skills through learning and we encourage them to fulfil their potential. This means that Bray and Slaughter have a loyal workforce and low staff turnover; a continuity that provides a collaborative, can do feel within the company.
 
We have benefited from a stable and disciplined leadership team; and our Directors are ‘hands-on’ in the daily management of the business, giving them excellent control over site operations.  We invest heavily in training and have a number of employees that have undertaken postgraduate study with the support of the company.  We have an extensive Training Matrix which ensures that all employees have received not only the right training to enable safe delivery of their projects and in accordance with current legislation, but that it also allows them to develop and ensures career progression at every level of the company.
 
We have been commended for our commitment to developing our people and in supporting the communities in which we work and live, through our positive approach which includes:

  • Supporting local schools and colleges through our established apprenticeship and work experience programmes
  • Supporting local Universities through the annual employment of placement students
  • Extensive Training and Development programme
