The regeneration business responsible for transforming huge swathes of England's northwest over the past 49 years, Peel L&P is underpinned by the belief that its legacy matters. It has some impressive achievements on its rollcall; this is the business behind the landmark MediaCityUK development in Salford, whose success Peel L&P is in the process of replicating across 60 hectares at Liverpool Waters where it acquired the Mersey Docks and Harbour Company – in one of the largest regeneration projects in Europe.

Careers cover a variety of roles, units and projects within the Manchester-headquartered company's £2.6 billion portfolio, which comprises 12 million square feet of property that it owns and manages and 20,000 acres of land and water. Its holdings are concentrated in the north west of England but Peel L&P assets stretch across the UK.

Staff receive structured training along with opportunities to stretch themselves personally and professionally. Part of the Peel Group infrastructure, transport and real estate investor Peel L&P had been supporting agile working even before lockdown pressed the fast forward button on widespread working from home. It also champions the Real Living Wage. As life gets back to normal Peel L&P teams are returning to work in bubbles on rota systems to manage contacts.

Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

95% of staff agreed

I believe I can make a valuable contribution to the success of this organisation

While some staff were furloughed during the lockdown and a company-wide pay reduction was issued (with senior leaders taking a bigger hit than the rest of the workforce), health and safety assessments helped those working from home get the right set-up and employees had access to the equipment they needed.

My Team

87% of staff agreed

My team is fun to work with

Virtual staff socials included a murder mystery led by a company leader, escape rooms, online yoga, cocktail making and a two-hour DJ party set. Staff also take part in fun activities to raise cash for good causes and team spirit gets a boost in the process.

Giving Something Back

79% of staff agreed

This organisation has a strong social conscience

Social responsibility is part of the Peel L&P ethos, be it environmental sustainability, charity fundraising or helping communities. In 2019-20 charitable donations edged over £640,000 in cash and staff gave 354 volunteering hours during work time, helping projects such as peatland restoration in Lancashire. Land under 22 railway arches in central Manchester has been gifted by Peel L&P for modular homes designed to reduce homelessness.
