About Temple Group Limited


What is it like to work for Temple Group Limited

Leadership
Leadership
Senior Managers demonstrate commitment to a professional and open environment though their day to day actions. They have a constant presence in the office, are approachable and actively engage with staff at all levels. In addition to leadership responsibilities, they are involved directly with technical delivery of project work and also have direct contact with junior staff frequently. They attend staff socials and take part in fund raising activities. They’ll always help out with mundane tasks if there is a need for more resources, for example you will often find the MD making tea for junior colleagues. They also participate in a variety of other meetings, some of which are led by more junior team members. They invite staff at all levels to participate, both formally and informally, in staff briefings. The Managing Director Chris Fry regularly joins the staff on social events and is known to wear red socks for Red Nose day and silly jumpers for the Christmas Jumper competition.

Knowledge Hubs allow employees who have an interest in a particular area of the company. They are encouraged to get involved with specialist knowledge hubs and also draw upon information shared through Temple’s document management system. Work shadowing is also used throughout the company to assist other colleagues with their work and to help them gain further knowledge of different areas. There are regular secondments to other positions, both internally and externally, in order to gain additional skills and experience. For example, Temple have recently opened two secondment positions in their business development team to give consultants experience in this aspect of consultancy. The company also pay for training costs and provide paid study leave for employees seeking to up skill or obtain additional qualification like a Master’s Degree or Diploma. Junior employees are given the opportunity to line manage work experience students and interns as a means of giving them the experience in people management. On top of all this a structured 12-month programme of educational sessions on business and core technical services is provided by Temple, as well as Leadership masterclasses where Senior managers run a course of 1 to 2 hour discussion groups that focus on aspects of business leadership and behaviours, for example collaborative behaviours, risk and opportunity analysis. This is open to managers and other staff in management positions across the organisation.

Employees at Temple are given one paid day per year to take part in either a corporate activity or one of their own choice. This gives them the opportunity to meet colleagues from Temple's other offices and work together. The company ran one corporate day where two individuals took part in their own local activity, Girl Guides and Dementia Café. In July 2016 10 employees spent the day with the Sussex Wildlife Trust, clearing Himalayan Balsam from the brook at Povey Cross in Horley. The company hold regular fund raising activities within the office environment for both local and national charities and also sponsor employees when they fundraise through sporting activities. They even offer work experience to school, college or University students and internships to University graduates to help them get on the employment ladder. Some have gone on to become permanent employees, either at the end of their internship or when they completed their University degrees. Temple also took on an apprentice who they offered a permanent position to at the end of her internship.
