Why Have a career at Lifterz?

Here at Lifterz we recognise that people are humans, all different with their own strengths and weaknesses and our challenge is to make sure that our employees are best suited to the job they do and the careers they have chosen.

Because we spend more waking time at work than we do at home it is vital that we enjoy the time spent at work. So, the environment, the culture, the growth, the challenges, the humour all add to up to Lifterz being a great place to be.

I am thoroughly enjoying every day here and I am learning more and more as my time progresses.

Heather Cain

Trainee Hire Controller

Growth creates opportunities and growth is certainly what you'll see here at Lifterz. Typically we are adding a £1m to our sales every year and this is driving our need to find good people. In the near future we will see a need to employ more specialists, such as in marketing, IT support, H&S and H.R. so keep your eyes on the opportunities page.

Our Values

We know that people don’t get things right every time. Were human but we do go the extra mile to make sure that we give our customers a good experience when using our service. Our strapline "experience the difference" means a lot to us so if we employ people who are not content with mediocrity we will achieve our goal of being different to the rest. We try to make it easy for our customers to deal with us and much of this is saying 'YES' and then making it happen. We're honest when things go wrong, as they do.

Training

Powered access is a relatively new sector of the hire industry and this has means that it is not always easy to recruit. We recognise this and as such see the need to train recruits from related or totally different sectors. From within our hire office team of 10 only 2 are from the sector. As another example, we are pleased to consider recruiting engineers from the fork lift industry. Sometimes we come to a crossroad in our lives and feel a need to change course. Our staff feel relaxed enough to tell us about such ideas and desires and we will always do what we can to steer people down the route they want.

There is also a fun element at the depots, where people pull together to get things done and a general can do attitude

Steven Gerrard

Operations Manager

One long time HGV driver (see Andy Legge below) felt that a health issue would prevent him from driving a truck until retirement and we set out to have him retrained as a full time trainer. It took nearly two years but we got there in the end. We take a flexible view of people, we take a serious view of their needs and do all we can to develop those with the right attitude.
