Smart DCC believes in making Britain more connected, so we can all lead smarter, greener lives. We're a relatively young company, with a very mature assignment. What we do will enable innovators to provide smart solutions for the future. It's never been done anywhere in the world. We're definitely game-changers in that respect.
It's an exciting time to join our business. Our universal, secure network will be in 30 million homes and businesses. That'll make it the largest network in Britain. Our business has evolved quickly as it's grown. The scope of what we do and what's in our roadmap is much further reaching than what Smart DCC was originally established to deliver. We have a presence, with offices in Manchester, London and Nottingham.
Our people mission is: to motivate individuals to be the best they can be. In turn, producing the best talent that makes DCC a high performing business and a great place to work.
We're good at what we do, but we're not perfect. We don't always get things right, but when that is the case, we fail fast. We fix the problem, learn how to be better moving forward and get on with it. We value all of our people and celebrate our diversity. We operate within a culture of mutual respect, ensuring everyone feels included.
We need people who are both innovative and professional by default. We need people who push themselves to be the best, always. If you want to grow a business that is fast paced, and you thrive in an environment of change, then Smart DCC is the place for you.
To motivate individuals to be the best they can be. In turn, producing the best talent that make DCC a high performing business and a great place to work.
The foundation stone of reaching our goal of being a high performing organisation is ensuing we have the right contractual structure in place. Appropriate pay, good benefits and a clear structure are all fundamental to any great organisation.
An engaging and inclusive culture is critical to being an outstanding organisation, keeping our people performing, and attracting excellent candidates.
Improving capability will support our people to produce excellent results.
Maintaining an inclusive culture of mutual respect, innovation and high performance is really important in making Smart DCC a great place to work.
All our colleagues have access to the support they need to be the best they can be. Therefore, we ensure everyone has access to training, and all DCC colleagues should have a personal development plan. As well as opportunities for personal growth we offer a wide-range of development opportunities to support out people.
At DCC we want to be an exemplar for diversity and inclusion. It's a big ambition and therefore a big ask on everyone that works here. Colleagues should be free to bring their whole selves and their best selves to work, knowing their contribution is valued.
We were finalists for the 'great workplace' accolade by the Employee Engagement Alliance for our approach to wellbeing. We make sure we take care of you and support you in taking care of yourself. Across our different sites you'll be able to attend local events about wellbeing, such as (but certainly not limited to!) meditation sessions and walking clubs. We've got trained Mental Health First Aiders on each site, just in case you need to speak to someone.
All permanent DCC employees also enjoy free membership to Headspace, a popular mindfulness app that allows users to enjoy mindful moments on the go, at home or on a break.
We work hard, but we have fun too! The social committee at each of our sites look after the organised fun - whether it be group outings, festive fundraiser or all-hands social events.
Here at Smart DCC, we are flexible with our colleagues by allowing them to work from home one day a week, if your role permits it.
We allow employees to dress for their day. This is because we believe that we work best when we feel comfortable in what we're wearing.
For permanent colleagues, you'll have access to a benefits programme called Capita Choice. There's a lot on offer, from health and lifestyle benefits, to retail discounts. Each year you'll have the chance to choose the benefits that suit your needs. Other benefits include the cycle-to-work scheme and season ticket loans, which help you to find the most cost-effective way of travelling. You'll also get 25 days annual leave to recharge your batteries, with the option to purchase five more within the Capita Choice benefits scheme.
