Hear from some of our colleagues about what working at Mears means to them.
One of the many reasons that our colleagues decide on a career with Mears, is our emphasis on being a socially responsible business and giving back to the communities in which we operate.
Our work brings us into contact with some of the most vulnerable people in society, living in some of the most socially deprived communities. As we grow, so do the opportunities and our sense of responsibility to make a positive difference.
We are proud to be on the list of the Sunday Times 25 Best Big Companies to Work For, and on the Social Mobility Index of the top 75 employers in the UK for our commitment to social mobility. We have a national Workforce Group that is responsible for setting the approach to staff engagement and each local branch has a People plan, which sets out what it will do in each year. We have an Employee Director who sits on the Mears Group Board, which also helps ensure that the views of the workforce are listened to and actioned.
Through long-term, sustainable partnerships we will deliver high quality, value-for-money services to meet our customers’ needs. We will achieve this through a culture which values people, promotes innovation and encourages continuous improvement. This will help us to grow a successful and profitable business, which is highly valued by our customers, employees and shareholders.

Sharing values leads to shared success – All Mears colleagues are bound by a common set of behaviours. We call this the Red Thread. It’s in our DNA and it helps us achieve more as individuals, as a team, and as a company.
We will work hard, present ourselves well and keep raising the bar.
We will take a step back, put ourselves in the customers’ shoes and deliver a service everyone in Mears would be proud of.
We will take responsibility for how we act, the image we portray and for always doing the right thing.
We will strive to be the best we can be and encourage colleagues to deliver the services our customers expect a little bit better every day.
We will take the initiative, take ownership and take responsibility, knowing our business will support us every step of the way.
