Investing in People

Our employees as well as being our main asset are the people who enable us to achieve solutions by using our cranes, transport units and other equipment - often under changeable and challenging conditions.



We ensure we provide good and safe working conditions for our employees, we make sure our people have the best equipment at their disposal and deal responsibly with occupational hazards in all our activities.

We pride ourselves on the fact that our workforce demonstrates an impressive flexibility, ability to cope with unexpected circumstances, cooperative attitude, professionalism and dedication.  Collett’s are constantly investing in developing the knowledge and skills of our workforce through our Training & Development Program.

All employees undertake an in-depth induction training programme; any shortfall in their competency level is then addressed with our internally developed training schemes (from our Centre of Excellence), external vocational courses, business skills training and academic development.

Collett & Sons Ltd is focused on attracting and retaining talented people from diverse backgrounds to successfully deliver its strategy and projects for clients.  Collett & Sons Ltd is addressing the risk of skill shortages in the logistics industry by ensuring that it employs the right people, through encouraging inclusion from the widest sector of the population and offering a variety of training and career development opportunities.  There are also real benefits to Collett & Sons Ltd in ensuring its employees have the skills and ability to anticipate future market demands and incorporate new and emerging technologies.

Developing talented employees therefore remains a key focus area.

This allows us to maintain our high standard’s throughout our entire workforce, for all our colleagues - delivering safely, driving safety.
