About Warings

What is it like to work for Warings

Philippe Jouy was appointed Managing Director in November 2009 following the retirement of the CEO after over 30 years with the Company. He has faced many challenges over the year particularly as a result of the economic climate and its impact upon the construction industry. He is open, honest with a fresh outlook, he challenges his people and has high expectations of himself and others.

The RESPECT Programme promotes positive behaviour in health, education, personal well being, citizenship, relationships and environment. Warings are proud to be the official corporate partner of the programme, allowing them to offer and support opportunities for young disadvantaged people including supporting apprenticeships and accredited training. Since partnering with the Respect Programme, Warings have taken part in a number of volunteering projects including the environmental clear up at Milton Locks, the Portsmouth Games Sports Festival and the Southsea Skate Park refurbishment. Their Health & Safety Advisors also volunteered their expertise prior to the work, undertaking a complete risk assessment of the park’s ongoing repair programme.
