Why join us?

People First

We know that our people are our greatest asset so we like to ensure we have a happy, motivated team.  We enjoy getting to know each other and like to support goals and ambitions both inside and outside of work.  As part of our sustainability pledge, we focus on health and wellbeing and we like to host a variety of company events for our staff.

Connected

It’s more important than ever to stay connected.  At Ashdown Phillips everyone across the business works as one.  Our teams work together to provide a seamless management service so connectivity is crucial to our success.  We completely support visits to different sites and offices to meet other members of the team across different departments.  It’s nice to meet the people you work closely with and visit the site that you write the reports for – we find this gives valuable insight and really helps our one team approach.  One of our goals is to get as many of our staff together in one place at least once a year.

Opportunity to progress

Progression means different things to different people. Whether you are the youngest or the oldest member of our Company we have a huge range of resources available to everyone along with talented teams of experts in their fields who will mentor you to help you reach your personal goals.

Wellbeing is high on the agenda at Ashdown Phillips and our Senior Leadership team are completely accessible to anyone who needs a chat or has a new initiative they want to discuss.  We have a dedicated team of Mental Health Ambassadors from all backgrounds to support our staff as well as an Employee Assistance Programme which offers a huge number of staff support services, ranging from legal information and guidance to money advice and counselling.

How our staff describe working at Ashdown Phillips…

“I never thought I could merge my creative background with facilities management. AP has been a complete breath of fresh air, I’m made to feel part of the family and am given the autonomy to make decisions that are right for my building and my opinions are valued.”

Lauren Pearce Building Manager

"It’s really great to come to work in such a supportive environment, where people from all teams work closely together. It’s never a problem to ask questions and it makes a real difference having a leadership team that are approachable and open to new ideas."

Emma Taylor PA/Administrator

"Moving to Ashdown Phillips was a very easy decision! After spending a brief time with senior leaders in the business I was sold. The support, advice and recognition that I have received has been huge. From winning our monthly Dare to be Brilliant award to being given the opportunity to sit on our Sustainability Committee and get involved in much more. I am genuinely empowered to be impactful, I have been looking for an organisation to put down some roots and now I have found it."

Gary Metcalf Associate Director

"I was quite nervous about starting a new job and joining a new company during the pandemic but Ashdown Phillips quickly put any nerves to bed. The team have been welcoming, supportive and provided excellent communication throughout, and, everything was set up and in place ready to go. Ashdown Phillips has been a breath of fresh air, especially with their people support and wellbeing programmes, it’s rare to find a company who delivers on their promises but they do just that. With sustainability at its forefront, the business actively supports and encourages participation in both green and charitable initiatives and I am proud to sit on one of the strategy groups. Ashdown Phillips is a great place to work and I look forward to seeing the business deliver great results with our colleagues and partners."

Rebecca Bird Retail Manager

"Ashdown Phillips is a company who like to push their people to be their best and encourage you to take on every opportunity there is. From the very beginning, it was effortless to see how every person played a part of one big team and that interaction between everyone, regardless of who it was, was natural. It is incredibly rewarding to be part of a company who strive to grow, and better themselves every day from sustainability projects to monthly Dare to Be Brilliant Awards. Although I have not been here for a lengthy time, I do know that this is somewhere that I would love to progress my career and have no hesitations that I would be deeply supported in doing so."
