Working for us
Our people are our greatest asset
None of our success would be possible without the expertise of our people. That’s why it’s important to us that every person is given the opportunity to grow and develop their capability. As the needs of our clients change, this provides opportunity to challenge and advance our colleagues.
Through personal development plans and structured programmes – we provide all the tools for our people to progress their careers.
At NRL we’re also passionate about identifying opportunities for apprentice and trainee roles, to welcome new talent into our businesses and help provide them the training and opportunities to build a rewarding career – as a proud signatory of the Social Mobility Pledge.
We understand that we are more likely to remain successful when our people are motivated and are working in an environment where they feel valued, and that’s why we’re proud of the culture we have created.
We work hard to provide our teams with the best possible experience working with us, and in doing so, know that we can then offer the best client service.
Above all we actively promote a culture of health, safety and wellbeing. Recognising the importance of good ideas and encouraging colleagues to innovate and take charge of their work – supporting them to achieve their full potential.

We’re delighted to have been accredited as a Living Wage Employer. By signing up to this voluntary scheme, we’re able to ensure we can continue to provide our colleagues with a wage that can more realistically take care of the needs of their family and home, as well as being representative of the value we associate with the outstanding work they deliver within our businesses.
Through our membership with the Living Wage Foundation we are keen to ensure that we continue to pay our colleagues fair and liveable wages in line with the annual hourly pay rate review each year, and join the growing list of UK organisations amplifying this important message.
We are proud of our excellent staff retention rate, with average tenure across our Group of 9 years.
