Investors in People
The fact that Mears has been accredited by Investors in People (IIP) since 1994 is one of the achievements of which we can all be most proud.During this period Mears has grown from 350 employees to over 16,000.
IIP accreditation requires organisations to consistently operate in a way that develops employees and to actively engage with them to look for ways to improve the running of the company. It is also important that the organisation is socially responsible and that people are committed to its' success.
Mears may be a larger organisation now but our commitment to staff development will never change.
In 2013 you will see new efforts to increase our apprenticeships, support management development and continue to develop all our staff in Health and Safety.
I would like to thank all staff for their individual contribution to our continuing success.
The opportunities to work for Mears are as diverse as the people it employs and the locations it operates in. With 200 branches nationwide you are never far away from an opportunity to work for us.
Our housing operations employ people in management, administration, finance, surveying and technical, quality and compliance, tenant liaison, customer care services, stores and across all trades.
Our care services employ people with a wide range of skills and experiences including managers, administrators, finance, co-ordinators QA managers, trainers and care workers.
