Canary Wharf Group plc
Who are Canary Wharf Group plc?
Canary Wharf Group plc (the Group) has already achieved one of the greatest ever feats of civic engineering, turning a once derelict Docklands into 97 acres of London’s most sought after office and retail space.
The Group comprises more than 1,200 people who are dedicated to one of the four sub companies. Canary Wharf Limited, Canary Wharf Contractors Limited, Canary Wharf Management Limited, and Level39 Limited.
Canary Wharf Contractors Limited (CWCL) manages and delivers all of the Group’s construction projects in an integrated Project Manager/Main Contractor basis. On projects where CWCL is not Main Contractor we act in a Project Manager capacity. Where the Group is not involved as a developer, CWCL operates as a construction manager and is integrated with the developer’s project team.
Canary Wharf Management Limited (CWML) undertakes management of our 97 acre Estate. With a current working population of around 120,000, 37 office buildings constructed to the highest standards of quality, resilience and environmental sustainability, over 300 shops, cafés, bars and restaurants, and our stunning venue, the East Wintergarden, Canary Wharf is a world-class centre for commerce, retail and leisure and needs to be managed as such.
Canary Wharf Limited (CWL) provides executive guidance and administrative support to the two main operational arms. It is the company that provides central business services for the Group and drives our socio-economic development agenda with departments that include Accounts, IT, Personnel/ Training, Legal, Office Leasing and the Press Office amongst others.
Level39 Limited (Level39) is the world’s most connected tech community. It supports fast-growth businesses in three clear ways – giving access to world-class customers, talent and infrastructure.
What projects / schemes / initiatives to support women’s recruitment, retention and progression in STEM are Canary Wharf Group plc involved in?
Committed to fostering a diverse and inclusive workforce, Canary Wharf Group believes the key to its success and growth is the people that work for the Company. The Group is committed to investing in and supporting staff and aspires to create a working environment whereby all the employees can reach their full potential. The work Canary Wharf Group has achieved so far in creating an inclusive culture is reflected in the low staff turnover, the significant investment in enhancing talent development, the increase of woman in technical construction roles which compares favourably to the industry average, and CWML engagement scores which also compares favourably with external benchmarking.
In order to further enhance our commitment to developing staff and the diversity of our workforce, CWG plc actively supports the Construction Youth Scheme; provides a Construction Graduate Scheme; offers enhanced maternity pay and has recently introduced enhanced shared parental pay, whereby parents can equally share time off during the first 12 months following the birth of their child.
Canary Wharf Group’s business strategy is underpinned by key values including teamwork, integrity leadership and customer service, which define the way we work and supports an environment which is focused on internal development and continual improvement.
We see our membership of WISE as a key facet in our efforts to ensure a diverse workforce.
