PEOPLE ARE OUR GREATEST ASSET

Plan B recognise that our people are our greatest asset and our success relies on their energy, enthusiasm and commitment. We therefore work hard to find the right people to fit into the organisation – people with a passion for providing innovative and practical advice and support to our clients.

Once we have found the right people we work hard to keep them happy and motivated throughout their career with Plan B and provide them with the tools, equipment, training and working environment needed to achieve the outstanding results our clients expect. This approach has yielded exceptionally positive results and we are extremely proud of their performance and achievements to date.

EXPERIENCED

The people at Plan B have significant experience developed through several years of working for Local Authorities and major Private Sector service providers and are able to offer a wide range of expertise in both management solutions and management support.

They have worked for large Private Sector Organisation and Public Sector bodies in the Waste Management, Street Cleansing and Grounds Maintenance industries and all have real hands-on experience of successful project delivery. This gives our people a genuine understanding of how the Environmental Sector works and enables them to provide straightforward advice and support where and when it is needed.

OUR COMMITMENT

In addition to the skills and experience available through this team, a major selling point for Plan B is the commitment they give to every project undertaken by the company and the dedication to achieving the best possible results.
