At Downies we have built a great team of motivated and talented people. We are delighted to say with the continued growth of the business we have ambitions to add to our ‘family’ of colleagues, and provide career opportunities for current team members.
Through our formal Annual Performance Management process you will have the opportunity to agree objectives with your Manager focussed on continuous improvement, and you will be provided with practical ways to grow and develop your skill set. We will support you with regular feedback, learning and development (both on and off the job), and opportunities to engage with colleagues on wider business initiatives and working parties.
We recognise that maintaining a healthy work life balance is important, regardless of your personal circumstances. Our people value the flexibility that our Rostered Day Off Scheme affords them, in addition to personal leave, when juggling family commitments or everyday life!
We don’t just talk the talk …. we believe a strategy for sustainability makes good business sense, and it is now an integral part of how we do things at Downies. From designing packaging to managing our buildings, we make sustainable choices – however we are mindful that there are no quick fixes. Working as a team and educating ourselves as we go through fun campaigns and “green” initiatives, we are seeing a whole range of positive long-term benefits.
We take our health & safety responsibilities very seriously and provide appropriate training to ensure the workplace is as safe as it can be. Our Workplace Health and Safety committee is a collaborative and consultative forum, with an ongoing agenda to promote safety, wellbeing and inclusiveness.
We know from time to time everyone needs a little extra support to help deal with life’s up and downs. Our HR policies and procedures ensure we have formal support mechanisms in place and a professional approach when managing people issues.
