About The BMT Group


What is it like to work for The BMT Group

Wellbeing
Wellbeing
Staff are encouraged to take their full allocation of leave and managers will meet with staff who do not take their leave regularly and discuss this with them. Information on stress management techniques are available to staff and widely disseminated to them e.g. via the company intranet. A confidential employee assistance programme is available to staff with high levels of stress whilst 'well person' check-ups are encouraged for all staff members.

Giving Something Back
Giving Something Back
BMT celebrated its 25th anniversary by launching a new significant philanthropic project called BMT Giveback. All staff were invited to submit ideas for ways in which the application of BMT’s technical scientific and engineering capabilities could make a difference to the lives of people in developing countries. The winning idea which has been put into practice is the design and implementation of a low cost sewerage and sewage treatment system for a rural village in India. At present, with no sanitation system, dirty water flows in open channels down the middle of unpaved roads, creating health risks. The project is much more than just a charitable donation, it is a technical challenge which BMT’s engineers have taken on to design a novel system which will work with very low water flows and be easy to maintain by the local people. By choosing materials and skills for the construction which area available locally, businesses in the area have been able to secure contracts to deliver the works, ensuring the maximum economic benefit to the local community. The new design having been created and piloted by BMT’s technical experts is being given away to an international development charity who will seek to implement it elsewhere. So not only will the 2500 people in this village experience a significant increase in their quality of life, but potentially many thousands elsewhere.
