Our approach to business is built on partnership and collaboration. By giving our people the training, support and opportunities to achieve their ambitions, we’re stronger as a business, and we can exceed our clients’ expectations.
We have received numerous awards because of how seriously we take safety, training, and looking after our people.
A long-term career
We attract and retain hard-working people who share our values. We show how much we appreciate people’s contribution with awards including ‘Outperformance’ awards for good work. Five- and ten-year awards acknowledge the loyalty of people who stay with us.
Before you start work
We check carefully before you can start work to make sure you have the right to work in the UK.
We are determined that slavery and human trafficking can never play any part in our business – please see our Modern Slavery page for more information.
We will also make sure that you are properly qualified to do your job safely. You will be tested for drugs and alcohol before you are allowed onto a worksite.
Please be aware that we have a zero tolerance alcohol and drugs policy.
We invest in training our people, to make sure they can do their jobs safely and well. We also give people the chance to learn extra skills, so they can work on many different projects.
Extra training also offers the opportunity for promotion. We have a policy of promoting internally. Read about some of the people who have been promoted to senior positions at VGC.
Fair terms, fair pay
VGC was one of the first companies in the UK to achieve the Ethical Labour Sourcing Standard (BES 6002:2017). It proves our commitment to tackling the issues of forced labour and human trafficking.
We are committed to meeting the requirements of the national living wage. If people are engaged on a working rule agreement, we pay according to these rates.
We have a number of trained FIR ambassadors, who help to ensure that everyone we work with is treated with fairness, inclusion and respect.
