DCC and me

Why work for us?

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.

All permanent DCC employees 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 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.


Social Committee

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.

Working from home

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.

Dress for your day

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.

Capita Choice

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.
