A Great Place to Work

At Howdens, success is incentivised, and individual effort is rewarded with the opportunity to build an exciting and satisfying career.

We encourage staff to take a range of internal and external training courses, and we work to maintain our good contacts with professional bodies. For example, our supply division has held Accredited Centre status with the Institute of Leadership Management since 2012 and Accredited Centre status with the Road Transport Industry Training board since 2016 to name a few achievements.

We know that in order for our business to grow, we must support our people to grow. So we take every opportunity to ensure Howdens' staff get the training they need to make the most of the many opportunities we offer them.
