At the heart of PWR is its people. We believe in them, support their health, safety and wellbeing and ensure they have access to learning and development opportunities. We encourage a workplace that is diverse, empowered and demonstrates good decision making and one which fosters innovation and high productivity.
We take a particular interest in recruiting apprentices, offering work experience to high school students and investing in them to build a capable and committed workforce to maintain PWR’s exceptional quality workmanship and customer service.
We are focused on ensuring PWR’s recruitment and development programs are inclusive and can support all our people, whatever stage they are at in life and their career.
PWR is proud to employee over 300 staff at our Ormeau operations, over 100 in our North America operations and a sales team in our UK office and have helped develop over 30 apprentices and 16 school work-experience students over the past year (2021).
