Business Systems Manager
“3 reasons why I enjoy working for Warden:
- My role allows me to make a real difference in the company – not one day is the same
- I get the opportunity to find solutions for people at all levels across the business
- I am able to be creative, challenged and given the trust to implement my ideas for business improvements”
“I started my career with Warden straight from school over 9 years ago. I first completed a Joinery Apprenticeship and was approached to further my career to complete a Site Supervisor’s course. Once I had completed this, I then got a further opportunity of going into Site Management completing my 2-year HNC in Construction.
This course was very difficult at times, but with the experience of everyone at Warden, including the Site Operatives, experienced Site Managers and the Office Staff with the admin side of things, it made everything much easier. I have never been without support from Warden throughout my whole career and I am very grateful for the opportunities that I have been given here. “
“Warden don’t pigeon hole their employees, they encourage progression and invest heavily in their staff. They found potential in me that I didn’t know was there until they challenged me. I started as an Apprentice Joiner and completed my Apprenticeship, when I was offered an office position and I worked my way through higher education, working in various departments along the way gaining experience and knowledge. I’ve always been happy to see what they have in store for me next.
Warden see potential in their staff and encourage personal growth and development. If you are looking to better yourself and progress your career, I haven’t come across a case where that hasn’t been fully supported by the company.”
Senior Site Manager
“Warden were working in Blackpool and using my parents café at the time. My parents thought it was a good, local family firm to work for.
I have stayed at Warden for 18 years because they have invested both time and money on my career development.
Warden is a continuously growing company with good values and I am proud to be part of the team.”
Senior Quantity Surveyor
“I started working at Warden straight from leaving school at the age of 16. Warden had carried out some refurbishment work at my high school and my Careers Tutor mentioned that they were looking for a Trainee QS / Estimator. At that time, I didn’t really know what direction I wanted to take with my career, other than the fact that I had had enough of full time education. I decided to apply and, two interviews later, I was successful and was offered a job. So while I sort of stumbled into working for Warden, it hasn’t been a decision I have ever regretted.
Warden produce high quality work in a good time frame. They are well organised and our goals and aims are identified at an early stage. The work I carry out is meaningful and I believe that I make a real difference as part of the larger team.”
