Meet our people
Find out what they love about working with us.
"Flexing work and family life isn't about striving for perfection. It's about finding a rhythm that works for me and my loved ones. Having the right employer and supportive colleagues is vital to work life balance."
"I’m surrounded by inspiring, supportive women that successfully juggle being a leader and a mum every day. We are all very different but connected by our desire and belief we can have it all."
"Procurement is a career where you never stop learning. Every project and sector brings new challenges and opportunities and that’s part of the reason I started this journey. Talent and desire to learn are important, but equally a supportive employer and colleagues make all the difference when you are building your career."
"Over the years, I’ve been supported to achieve over 25 professional certifications and qualifications which have paved the way to becoming the agile leader in the business. The support I’ve received goes far beyond certification; it comes from peers and senior leadership in the respect and value they place on my knowledge."
"My apprenticeship has been an enlightening experience. From the moment I applied, UKSBS were more interested in my passion and desire to learn than any experience I might have. I’ve had the opportunity to build a wide variety of digital skills developing new products that really make a difference to the business and our customers."
"Being able to flex the working day is invaluable in getting a great work life balance and for wellbeing. The hybrid working offers me the best of both worlds. With my husband traveling with his job, I wouldn’t be able to work full time without this flexibility."
