About Lindum Group Ltd

Lindum Group started out with three employees, a secretary and a dog called Shep, working mainly on civil engineering projects with the very first job being drainage and road works for two new houses in a Lincolnshire village. Fast forward half a century and Lindum Group now employ nearly 700 people spread across 12 division covering work in the East Midlands, Yorkshire and East Anglia.

Lindum Group's principal activity is construction with new build, refurbishment and maintenance services being supported by the divisions of Lindum Waste Recycling, Lindum Joinery, Lindum Plant Hire & Vehicle Maintenance and Lindum Security.

Their open door policy, operated by all directors and managers means that staff are able to chat informally with them at any time for help and advice. The financial director doesn't even have a door on his office. First name terms are the norm with photos of all staff featured in their annual year book, which all employees have a copy of.

Every year Lindum share 10% of their profits equally amongst all employees and they also offer free issue shares, so everyone becomes a shareholder in the company. They also operate a 'save as you earn' scheme which allows staff to save as much as they are comfortable with each month and buy shares with these savings.
