At Canary Wharf Group plc (CWG), we recruit on merit and look for people who share our values, our ambition to be the best and our commitment to delivering the highest quality service.
Within the Group there are opportunities for employment within various sectors of the Company, such as: Engineering/Maintenance, Landscape Gardening, Security, Administration, PA/Secretarial, Front of House, Reception, IT, Car Parks, Accounts, HR and Marketing.
We strongly believe in investing in people for the future – for example, within our Building Maintenance Department we have several apprentices, who are currently studying towards a qualification in Building Services to become fully qualified multi-skilled Building Services Engineers. This provides an excellent career ladder for promotion within this environment.
Apprentices are also employed in other areas of the business, such as landscaping, administration and security. This gives young people every opportunity to begin their career and expose themselves to a good mixture of work based learning and academic study.
Canary Wharf Group has a strong company ethic of developing staff and encouraging internal promotions.
All our vacancies are advertised internally and externally and we place a strong emphasis on local recruitment.
We work closely with government agencies specifically within Tower Hamlets and surrounding boroughs.
Learning and Development
“The key to Canary Wharf’s success is the people that work for Canary Wharf Group.”
Sir George Iacobescu, CEO
Developing both new and existing employees is key to the future prosperity of CWG. Canary Wharf is committed to motivating its staff by developing their skills and knowledge to carry out their job efficiently for the overall success of the company. Employees undertake this development through both formal and informal training.
CWG offers an abundance of training resources to help colleagues continue to develop during the course of their career. We recognise that the need for training can arise anytime in employment, therefore we continually review training needs and also encourage staff to identify their own training and development needs.
Employees wishing to undertake additional further education or training which is job and business related are given flexibility for time and study allowance.
The Performance Appraisal is conducted annually and provides the opportunity for the employees to agree development objectives with their manager and identify any training needs.
Work experience plays an important role in developing the skills of the Company’s future employees. Canary Wharf Group gives the opportunity to local students to gain key skills to help them with future employment which is part of the company’s Corporate Social Responsibility commitment. The objective is to ensure we take a minimum of 30 students from the London Borough of Tower Hamlets and surrounding boroughs.
