Careers

A career with Stepnell means you will be part of a forward thinking and flourishing company that will invest their time and resources in developing you, so that you are equipped to continue the excellent work we are so passionate about.

We want to provide you with the best possible start with our company. We want to place you in an environment where your creativity will be embraced, your skills honed, and where you will be faced with an immensely diverse variety of challenges every single day.

You’ll be empowered to make a difference and have the opportunity to become part of a team where your success is recognised and rewarded.

As an equal opportunities employer, we value all of our staff and want to see them succeed in their careers. We offer support and training, but more importantly, give people the opportunity to grow and truly make a difference.

We provide clear career progression routes and training for all levels of staff. As a rapidly growing business, this provides endless opportunities for staff to progress to the next level and be rewarded for their efforts with promotion. This is especially apparent for members of our site management teams, the ‘rock stars’ of our business who are at the coal face, delivering the projects we are so proud of – John Neill started at Stepnell as Project Manager and after just four years with the business has progressed to Contracts Manager, winning Gold at the CIOB Construction Manager of the Year Awards 2017 along the way.

We’re ambitious, and continue to grow our business; but despite our stature, we remain a family business at heart. We combine the focus and accessibility of a regional contractor with a depth of technical competency, professional capability and national reach usually reserved only for larger organisations. So, whether you are looking for work experience, an apprenticeship, a trainee or graduate opportunity or a job opportunity, and if you have the talent and ambition to join us, please get in touch:

What makes Stepnell different?

We are large enough to provide real opportunities for career progression and small enough to mean that no two days are ever the same.

We truly invest in our future workforce and already exceed the aim of the industry initiative ‘The 5% Club’ by ensuring that at least 10% of our workforce is made up of apprentices, trainees or graduates.

Our strong financial outlook means you will not need to worry about job security – 33% of our 400+ workforce have over 10 years’ service with Stepnell.

You will get the opportunity to be more involved than you might with one of our larger competitors, enabling you to gain a much broader experience and develop your skill set a lot faster.

Our business owners are hands-on, accessible and visible around the business. You have more opportunity to be seen, heard, and to make a positive impact from the word go.
