Words on working at the Banks Group

Project secretary

Rachel Dowson

“The Banks Group is a great company to work for.  Over the years I have been given the opportunity to work across all business areas gaining insight into all areas of the business. The company offers training programmes to enhance skills and knowledge and provides a supportive working environment. I look forward to seeing what the future holds.”

Accounts assistant

Deborah Hurton

“I have worked for Banks for over 37 years. The job security it provides is amazing and I can not imagine working anywhere else, I hope this role will take me to my retirement.  I’m not sure many people can say they have worked for the same company their whole working life which shows what a great company the Banks Group is to work for.”

Assistant to company secretary

Joanne Bethell

“There hasn’t been a day since I started working for Banks in 1986 that I haven’t looked forward to coming to work. I’ve worked in Transport, Plant, Mining, office management and now for the company secretary. Each change presented new challenges which has allowed me to develop and grow, with the company investing in my career along the way. My time at Banks has gone by really quickly, but it’s full of great memories, personal growth and achievements. Long may it continue.”

Secretary / office manager

Kayleigh Parkinson

“I’m proud to work for The Banks Group as I get the opportunity to work with an incredibly diverse range of people from various different departments. My role as head of reception is a very rewarding role, it allows me to set the tone and create a positive first impression when welcoming visitors and staff to the business.”

Branding manager

Jonathan Burnhope

“Contributing to teams working across the group that are delivering projects to help solve some of the biggest issues we face today: transition to net-zero, sustainable living and how we source the materials we use to achieve these goals is something I feel is important, worthwhile, and proud to be part of.”

Fleet manager

Debbie Anderson

“I have worked for Banks since January 1990. The business has always provided great opportunities to progress and invested in me and my career.  I enjoy coming to work, and working for a family business makes me feel part of the family – not just an employee.  I’ve been on some interesting journeys, some quite challenging, but Banks has always given me the support I need to achieve my goals.  I look forward to the future and to see what different journeys await.”

Health and safety manager

Christian Adkins

“Working in health and safety is one of the most rewarding jobs possible. Every day, I see great business benefits to putting health and safety high on the agenda. I have seen many of our business areas win lucrative contracts on the back of having good health and safety systems in place. It is a real privilege to be on that journey with them.”
