At BAM we believe that “Your Safety is My Safety”. We all work together to create a safe work environment from which we all go home safe every day.

We all look after one another and put the safety of everyone as our number one priority. We are all responsible and, if we see something that doesn’t look right, we have a culture which means we are confident to raise concerns and are inclined to hear them.

We are always looking for new and innovative ways to improve safety. The more we use digital construction techniques, the more we can move people away from potentially dangerous situations. From fatigue monitoring helmets to ensuring everyone has the correct PPE for the job, we are always looking for new ways to keep our people safe.

We don’t just believe in performing to industry standards, we want to push constant improvement.

Our commitment to equality, diversity, and inclusion (EDI) runs right through our whole employee experience at BAM. We promote an inclusive workplace where people can be themselves. Our approach focuses on three major areas: A great place to work; People supported to be their best; Enhancing lives.

A great place to work

We want you to feel you 'belong' here and feel you can maximise and stretch your talents, share your experiences, and have your say counted. We're building global people networks for all our people, celebrating our diversity calendar, sharing our experiences, and learning about our differences.

We strive to make sure everyone is offered equal opportunity to achieve their full potential. We’re continuously improving our recruitment processes so they’re free from bias and we base decisions on people's skills and potential. Using data and peoples' insights to drive improvements, we strengthen our policies and processes to support our EDI goals and aspirations.

Our relationship with WISE, diversity and inclusion change-makers, has grown significantly since we became members, and in 2020 BAM Nuttall became a WISE strategic partner. We’ve seen progress and positive responses for our work on gender diversity following the implementation of the Ten Steps model. We’ve implemented initiatives including unconscious bias training and our ‘Returners to Work’ programme

People supported to be their best

We don't support 'one version' of brilliance. We recognise people possess a wide diversity of skills, experiences, and new perspectives are welcomed to help BAM become a more inclusive and sustainable business.

Our apprenticeship programme is rated highest for our industry. And we’re successfully attracting and recruiting increasing numbers of female applicants’ year on year.

BAM people are supported by their colleagues, managers, mentors, and the company to be their very best! We have a number of people networks which everyone is encouraged to join. Here, people share their experiences, learn how to support each other and advise how to improve our business.

Enhancing lives

BAM's purpose is 'building a sustainable tomorrow.'

We aim to leave a positive legacy in the communities where we collaborate with clients, contractors, and our supply chain. Together we provide and maintain the transport networks, hospitals, energy, water, and other vital infrastructure people and national economies depend on.

By reflecting diversity in our local communities, listening to what people need, and creating opportunities to build and develop skills, we can succeed.

Our business is constantly changing and evolving and so are our customers’ challenges. We want to stay ahead of the knowledge curve. Ongoing learning and development is fundamental as we strive for a sustainable business made up of the very best and most talented people.

We provide access to the resources and the support you need to keep your professional skills up to date and to gain the most relevant accreditations. From NVQ’s to postgraduate qualifications to chartership with industry bodies, we ensure our people have the tools to be the best they can be.

The growth of our people is absolutely vital to our business. The better they are, the better we are – it’s that simple. So we repay their outstanding contribution with a world of opportunities to develop their skills, experience and career.

If you want to progress we will give you new skills and if you want to diversify your career or have a change of path entirely, we’ll ensure you’re supported to do that. All we ask from you is the drive to improve and evolve.

Our business is always looking forward and so should you.
