About thecentre:mk


What is it like to work for thecentre:mk

Personal Growth
Personal Growth
Personal development plans are put in place for team members to learn new skills by taking up roles in other departments. Employees have access to a variety of training activities including courses in assertiveness and NVQ level 2 and 3 relevant to that employee. They also provide staff with £145 per annum for personal development training. The money allows employees to develop and learn new skills not associated with the workplace such as languages, golf and horse riding lessons.
My Team
My Team
Regular team events are held and have included a dragon boat festival, where the senior team cooked food on a barbeque, served drinks and made sure everyone had a great day. They hold celebration events in their staff lounge when the company exceeds targets or has received awards. To help employees bond, team building events are held up to twice a year. One of their teams went to the Monmouth Canoe and Activity Centre for a weekend and canoed along the River Wye, pitched tents and cooked food. Their Service Road team went on a quad bike day as a reward for all the recycling they achieved in a month and another went to an off road event which was in recognition of their team efforts.
