People

We have been a Bristol-based employer for over 110 years and truly recognise the importance of treating our employees with the respect and praise that they deserve. Many of our staff joined the company as apprentices and through support and career progression, are now Site Managers and Supervisors. 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; the directors of the company are actively involved 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 not only the right training to enable them to do their jobs safely, competently and to abide by current legislation but that 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 supporting our local community 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
  • IIP accredited Personal Development Review programme
  • Extensive Training and Development programme
