The UK company is part of a larger organisation with a global presence. The parent company has some clear (ambitious) objectives including: revolutionising the way industrial business deal with each other, and, providing free training to support to anyone that wants to learn digital/computer basics through to learning how to develop apps and write programs.
This corporate vision is visibly embraced at the country level and the CEO and other Board members are active in the company social channels to promote these opportunities and make themselves available to everyone for question or comment.
There has been a big shift in the last year regarding the company's core activities. Selling and processing of metal products. Activities that were maybe once profitable but are now commonplace and commodity offering are no longer offered at net loss making prices just to compete. Instead the company has adapted to offer complimentary services, adding value to both the customer and the organisation, ensuring a financially stable future for both.
As an employee I have not felt this job secure in a while. I have also not felt as valued, by the whole organisation, as I do today. That's not to say individuals have not made me feel valued in the past, they have.
I would not hesitate to recommend KMUK as an employer for those who are looking to the future of industry, willing to embrace continual change, and work hard. I would not recommend it for anyone that wants to do the same thing over and over the same way, signing in at 9 and clocking out at 5, for the next 20 years.
