Investing in employees to grow

Essar Oil UK knows that supporting our employees to grow professionally is important and brings many benefits for individuals and the business too. That is not all, there are a range of other activities that support employees to play an important part in our success.

Personal growth and professional development

Sponsored education

We all know the importance of personal growth and professional development. It’s essential. That is why we provide sponsorship for ongoing studies - a relatively small but significant contribution to both your and our continued success.

And it works. Everybody benefits.

Here’s what one of our current employees has to say about their experience working with us:

Mark Jarvis

“I recently completed my BEng degree in industrial Electronics and Control Engineering. I had to commit a fair amount of my own time to complete the work required, but it was definitely worth it. The networks I built with other students who work in engineering roles are really helpful too. I have applied what I have learned back in work and it has made a real difference to me and to the business. I have had some great support from people on site who have completed similar qualifications and this has really helped me get the best from the programme.”

 

So what else do?

Essar Oil UK Voice

We want Essar Oil UK to be the best - for our employees and for our customers. To support that, our employees are asked to take part in the ‘Essar Oil UK Voice survey’. This survey tracks employee opinion and is a major building block for improvements to the business.

Sports and social activities

Its not just all about work either. The sports and social club offers our people plenty of opportunities to get involved in a wide range of activities. From mountain and road biking to, to football, to social gatherings and other sporting events there’s certainly no shortage of things to do. 

Charity events

Whether it is sponsored running events or support for our local Foodbank, we take our role in the community very seriously. That’s why so many of the staff here are so heavily involved in raising money for a host of charities, support Essar Oil UK is keen to match.
