People & Culture
Our core values are at the heart of everything we do at Mercia, they focus us on ‘how’ we all work. We believe that ‘how’ we do things is fundamental to our success at all levels and helps to distinguish us.
It matters deeply that we are seen as honest and ethical and are respected as professional trusted partners, with all of our stakeholders. We have a shared sense of purpose and we all play our part in making Mercia a ‘great place to work’. A great place to work for us means being members of a team who are in pursuit of ambitious company and personal objectives, while being supported with development opportunities in our work and through our Mercia Academy.
We recruit exceptional people who are bright, with a credible track record and a passion for what we do and getting things done. We are all part of a talented team of like-minded people, who are extraordinary and highly effective. It’s in this Mercia team that we aim to learn the most, perform our best work and have the most fun.
Our environment is fast-paced and highly collaborative. We encourage creativity and innovation, always looking for new and better ways of doing things. We believe that people thrive on being trusted, being given freedom, and on being able to make a difference.
At Mercia we celebrate and support difference. We’re ahead of many and we are proud to be an equal opportunity employer, with a positive gender balance across the group, from our Board Members, Senior Management Team, Investment and Operational Team.
Alongside our excellent range of benefits with a focus on employee wealth and health, we have our Mercia Reward and Recognition programme, which enables us to regularly showcase individual and team achievements. This may be as simple as receiving a ‘thank you’ in our fortnightly People newsletter, or perhaps receiving a recruitment bonus for the successful introduction of a new colleague, where we know that they will share our values and further strengthen the Mercia team.
As well as a range of benefits and rewards, we are creating an environment where employee wellbeing is central to our people strategy. We offer private medical care and confidential counselling. We don’t believe that employees can be at their best if they don’t feel their best.
