About Mears Group

Mears is one of the UK's leading service providers to both the public and private sector with over 12,000 employees, working with clients to help develop, fund and implement their placemaking ambitions.

The group recognises that the people they employ are their greatest asset. These employees are skilled in delivering excellent service while showing a strong customer service ethos and empathy for their service users.

Mears Group's service delivery is their key differentiator. Over the years they have invested heavily in training their people and they are committed to providing them with the skills and equipment to deliver great service. The group also provides programmes for young and unemployed people from their communities.

The organisation understand how pivotal their people are in the continued success that they see. To say thank you, Mears put on two 'Family Funday's' at theme parks over the year. One in England and one in Scotland where they hire out a whole theme park, pay for colleagues and up to 6 family members to attend with them and put on free food.
