My A-Plant Story

Sam, Head of Learning & Development - “I’m really excited about starting my MBA in Leadership.”

“I started my journey with A-Plant four years ago when I was first recruited as a Talent and Development Manager. It immediately struck me how much opportunity there was and that really appealed to me.

Building a career

“You can really build a career at A-Plant and you’re not just another number. Even though A-Plant is a large employer, there’s a very supportive, family feel about the place and people really care about your thoughts and opinions. I’ve never felt micro-managed and we’ve got a fantastic HR and Training team who I love working with.

Leading by example

“It’s been an exciting time for me lately at A-Plant. I’ve recently been promoted to Head of Learning and Development and I’m just about to start my MBA in Leadership which will involve spending two days a month at Salford University in the classroom, and I’ll also be taking part in webinars and completing assignments. I’m looking forward to the challenge of learning new things!

High profile projects

“Working at A-Plant has allowed me to gain a great deal of exposure and I’ve completed projects alongside Board Directors and the senior management team. I’m really excited about the introduction of Academy, our new online learning platform which will revolutionise how A-Plant colleagues will learn and develop their personal and professional skills.”

Wayne, Service Centre Manager - “Managing A-Plant’s biggest depot is the best thing that’s ever happened to me.”

“I started working for the company almost 35 years ago now as an Apprentice Fitter on a four year YTS scheme as it was known then. I joined straight from school as I’d always had an interest in mechanics. I was a Fitter for around 12 years, before moving to the hire desk and being made a Service Centre Manager two years later.

Best thing that’s ever happened to me

“I’m now Manager of A-Plant’s Chadderton branch and I’m proud to say that it’s the company’s biggest service centre to date. It’s the best thing that’s ever happened to me whilst I’ve been at A-Plant. Over 100 people work across the site and the facilities are just superb. We’ve got glass panelled offices, a huge canteen, our own conference room and a fantastic amount of workshop space.

Champion of champions

“There have been many memorable moments whilst I’ve been working at A-Plant. One of my greatest achievements was winning the ‘Champion of Champions Best Depot of the Year Award’ when I managed the Liverpool City depot.

Rewards come your way

“If you work hard at A-Plant and remain committed, you are rewarded for your efforts and you can progress through the company. You receive a great deal of support and backing along the way.”
