“Telent doesn’t operate in a bubble. Our services connect and impact on the daily lives of everyone in the UK, so it makes sense that we’re representative of those wider communities. It’s our people that make Telent a great place to work. It’s a priority that we support an environment that brings diverse people together and encourages everyone to thrive. Ensuring an inclusive culture is essential too: when we work together, when we value ourselves and each other, we achieve more as individuals and as a team.”

At Telent, we recognise that a strong workforce is a gender-diverse workforce. We try to challenge perceptions about jobs in STEM, civils, and transport. Through events we try to show women what a career with Telent looks like – and that our doors are open to skilled women to join one of the leading builders of the UK’s critical digital infrastructure.

We try to provide rewards and benefits that not only help financially but support balancing work and home life and health and wellbeing. Typical benefits:

  • 34 days holiday, including public bank holidays, plus the option to buy or sell five days each year
  • Company matched pension scheme (up to 6% contribution matched)
  • Career development opportunities
  • Family friendly policies
  • Occupational health support and wellbeing portal

Where roles allow, colleagues have the flexibility to design their own work pattern or benefit from hybrid working (working from home or the office) so their professional and personal lives can fit better together.
