At SIMEC Atlantis Energy, we have built up a team of extremely talented and dedicated engineers, project managers, administration and support staff.
Our ability to attract and retain staff depends upon the overall ‘deal’ we offer which includes a dynamic work environment where staff are challenged and skills are developed, an opportunity to make a meaningful contribution in an industry which is striving to make tomorrow better than today and a competitive salary and benefits package.
Having a balanced life is important to us and we are always open to a conversation about how we can make our roles work for our people in terms of how, when and where they work. We are proud of our exceptionally high levels of flexibility in working hours and location, including remote working and flexible work patterns. Working smart is more important to us than working hard for the sake of it. We also offer an enhanced leave policy to support our people through life events alongside enhanced pension contributions and support to achieve professional qualifications.
We understand the importance of diversity and we make sure it is embedded in our day-to-day activities and our wider business strategy. Our goal is to ensure that these commitments, reinforced by our values of Safety, Environment, Tenacity, Innovation and Respect are embedded in our day-to-day working practices with all our employees, customers and partners.
When it comes to recruitment, we advertise our roles on wildly available job boards and social media networking platforms and we are currently adopting recruitment best practice such as the introduction of blind CVs. We also word our job descriptions very carefully to avoid indirect discrimination and make sure all who satisfy the key skills and qualifications for the role are included at the application stage.
We recognize that we have a role to play in improving underrepresented groups’ participation in the sustainable energy and engineering sectors and as well as our recruitment practices outlined above, we participate throughout the year in STEM related activities for school children and young adults. We support local and nation-wide STEM activities, with a particular emphasis on female presence in engineering and STEM related roles.
We want our staff to feel included and heard. We want our staff to have an opportunity to make a meaningful contribution to sustainable development. Whilst tacking climate change is everyone’s responsibility, at Atlantis we provide a platform for people to take meaningful and intelligent action.
