10 reasons for working at Keller

We pride ourselves in having some of the best professionals and skilled people in the industry who are motivated by our culture and the opportunities for career growth. These are fostered by our structure, which allows us to combine the best of being big with the best of being small.

1. Global business offering opportunities for international career growth

With an established presence in over 40 countries across 5 continents, we are able to offer international career development for ambitious and talented people who have a global mind-set and are willing to travel.

2. Regional structure fosters a challenging and rewarding work environment

Our structure and control framework means that regional managers are given significant responsibility from an early stage in their careers. The culture of empowerment is a significant motivator which enables us to attract and retain some of the industry's best talent.

3. Growth track record

With Group turnover nearly trebling in the 10 years to 2013, our strong growth track record has helped to ensure that we can continue to offer our most talented people good opportunities for career growth.

4. Socially responsible

We recognise the areas where our business impacts on society and where we have responsibilities which extend beyond our financial performance. These impacts relate to safety, the environment, our role as an employer and the communities in which we work. By taking these wider responsibilities seriously, we hope to further the sense of pride which our employees have in Keller.

5. Leading edge projects

Our collective size and strength means that we are able to tackle some of the world’s largest and most challenging foundation projects, using the latest equipment and methods.

6. Learning and development

As well as the chance to learn ‘on the job’ on some of the most high profile civil engineering projects, we offer structured training and development opportunities which are designed to help our people to contribute in line with their full potential.

7. Breadth of technologies/technology transfer

Through our acquisition of new technologies, the development of existing technologies and the continuous transfer of technologies between our regions and businesses, we can ensure that our engineers have access to the widest range of solutions and the opportunity to continue their technical learning.

8. Family culture

Despite our collective size, we have managed to preserve the individual character of our Group companies and to maintain a culture that is both entrepreneurial and family-oriented.

9. Fair employment practices

We are committed to creating a working environment in which every employee is employed and promoted solely on the basis of his or her merit and personal contribution and one which is free from unlawful discrimination and harassment.

We value diversity and celebrate individual differences, believing that our inclusive culture helps the business continue to grow as a strong, dynamic and innovative organisation.

10. Competitive rewards and good recognition

In case 1 to 9 are not reasons enough for working at Keller, we also offer competitive rates of pay and benefits and, for many positions, performance-related incentives. And good performance is recognised in a myriad of different ways, not only through our rewards system.
