At Mobile Mini we believe that our people are our greatest asset and we encourage everyone to develop their skills to take on new responsibilities and to become the best at what they do.
Every employee matters to us and we believe that we can only grow and succeed as a company by developing, motivating and recognising the daily efforts of our employees. We therefore support ongoing personal development by investing in excellent training and offering great career development opportunities.
We also endeavour to promote from within whenever possible and we encourage our employees to develop their roles into a career with Mobile Mini.
Why work for Mobile Mini?
At Mobile Mini we recognise the importance of a warm welcome and a positive induction to the company which is why we invest in our new employees from the very beginning.
Our induction programme gives new starters all the tools they need to be successful in their roles. All new employees are welcomed into the company through a combination face-to-face, hands-on and e-learning training.
New employees have the opportunity to spend time in the yard and on the road with our HGV Drivers to expand their knowledge and understanding of how we get our units out on hire. New starters, dependent on job role, also have the opportunity visit our Support Centre and meet with Managing Director, Andrew Thompson.
Our team of highly trained HGV drivers all undergo an intensive induction programme. We focus on giving our drivers the highest standards of training so we remain safe on the roads and on our customer’s sites.
Learning & Development
We invest heavily in the Learning and Development of our workforce to ensure that they are competent and confident in their roles. All employees have regular appraisals and development discussions to help increase their skills and knowledge. We support all needs from basic computer skills to accredited Health & Safety training.
Mobile Mini’s Learning & Development team are in place to ensure all of the support and formal training is created and organised for our employees to develop their abilities. We have worked hard to achieve an ISO 9001:2015 accreditation and we have ensured that our records and processes now follow this standard.
At Mobile Mini, we recognise that investing in our leaders is a key part of our success and have invested in bespoke leadership programmes. Our principles of leadership include empowerment, trust and open communication and these principles support our teams who work together to be the best and to provide excellent service to our customers.
