Learning and Development
Learning and Development

Everyone at Veolia is offered the opportunity to reach their full potential through our training and development programmes.

In fact, we even have our own dedicated training centre – Campus Veolia. Each year, we spend over £5 million on training and learning programmes including classroom learning, work-based training and on-the-job experience.

We prefer a blended approach to learning that uses a mixture of techniques. From on-site visits to dedicated classroom environments, role play, written assignments and on-line learning. You can work towards gaining a range of recognised qualifications including:

National Vocational Qualifications from Level 1 in Waste Management to Level 4 in the Certificate of Technical Competence.

Apprenticeships - an ambitious programme for 300 apprentices that provides an opportunity to learn on the job and qualify for a variety of roles.

Supported learning, both financially and with study time, to gain qualifications with an external provider including degrees, MBAs and chartered status.

This forms part of a great package of benefits to make your career at Veolia truly rewarding!

Social responsibility
Social Responsibility

Sustainability is at the heart of everything we do. We care about people and the planet and encourage all our staff to respect the environment and the local communities that we work in.  So we can create a brighter future for everyone.

Being a good neighbour is only part of the story. We also get together with local community groups and schools to provide education sessions and a variety of environmental initiatives to encourage recycling, recovery and reuse.

Our aim is to recruit locally wherever possible, and we advertise roles at local jobcentres around the UK in partnership with JCP.

We work with prisons  to deliver training, support and qualifications to offenders on their journey to rehabilitation.

We also sponsor many local schemes and make donations to local charities. One of our most popular initiatives is our employee volunteering scheme. It gives every member of staff the opportunity to devote half a day of their working time every year giving something back to their local community – without losing a penny of their pay.

Our efforts in this area do not go unnoticed - we have been rewarded with Four Stars in the Business in the Community (BitC) Corporate Responsibility Index in which we were placed second in the UK nationwide.

Our community activities also extend across the globe: Veolia Force is a network of emergency employee volunteers which can be mobilised to attend natural disaster areas and provide practical assistance.
