Loved it here, was a temp Doc Controller/Site Secretary, left due to Covid19 & then announced voluntary redundancies. The close knit team were great to work with, management exp, proactive & hard working. Social Responsibility initiative's high on the agenda, CCS taken seriously, H&S high priority and excellent, work life balance very good. Would go back like a shot!

Having worked there at such young age, I was exposed to the inner working of a construction site, seeing things I had never seen before, moreover i was able to learn a lot in the short time I was there.

I was at WD for a year. Management seemed friendly, but no training. Long hours and frequent overtime. 2 weeks after telling them i was pregnant i was called in by HR and fired. As i had been there for under two years i could not take them to a tribunal and they paid no redundancy. If you want job security ... do not work here. In my time there similar had happened to 10 others. After i had left it seemed they were firing people on average one person a week for fabricated reasons. Despicable company. If you work for them, watch your back.

They deliberately not pay certain firms. Difficult to get appropriate training and help and push for results but not on a fair basis. Very good on passing the buck when errors occur

I enjoyed working there but had to cease employment when I had my child. I would recommend this role to others. I would also like to go back there but currently I have not seen a vacancy for this company.

Only here on a placement so hard to give a fair review of the workplace as I didn't visit the head office. Staff I worked with were great. Everyone on site was approachable and took time out to teach you and answer questions.

There were different challenges in different industries in construction such as, carpenter, bricklayer etc. However it’s also a challenge consulting the health and safety aspects. Ultimately I learned that to be in the construction industry you have to take multiple risk factor test considering health and safety precautions.

Never a dull moment answering phones and speaking to clients day to day. Completing daily tasks such as booking meetings and hotels for colleagues, sending and receiving post on time. I feel as if I've benefited from this line of work.
