Working at Astley Hire

Working at Astley Hire is all about teamwork. To deliver the very best service for our customers we work together and look after each other. All staff are trained internally or go on courses to make sure they have the skills and knowledge to do their job well. The company runs a health scheme, makes generous pension contributions and supports staff so the team can always deliver.

The culture of the business to one where staff are involved in decision making. This starts from the day they are first inducted and continues through a process of continuous assessment of what skills they need. Training is then tailored in order to allow them to improve.

Staff are made aware of their importance to the company by ensuring that there is a clear trace of how an individual’s targets fit within the overall company targets. This could be where a new driver requires training on the safe delivery of machines to customers. This would tie in with the company’s targets on Health & Safety. A lot of training takes place on the job with coaching from more experienced members of staff. Some training is supplied by outside companies, this is the case for the Modern Apprenticeship scheme which we have introduced for trainees in the service department.
