We have a commitment to employing, training, and developing local people working with existing providers of employability. Partnering with organisations such as Inspira, APEX, Developing the Young Workforce and Routes to Work, as well as schools, colleges and universities, we will continue to provide meaningful work experience opportunities, advice, and training on construction sites across the UK.

Not only has these partnerships enabled multiple people to gain valuable experience and life skills, but in several cases, this has led to full time employment being offered, either directly by us or through a member of our supply chain.

As part of our strategy to ensure that the great employment opportunities we offer are available to all, we signed up to the Disability Confident Scheme and the Armed Forces Covenant, and work with organisations such as All Together Cumbria, Aid and Abet, and Haverigg Prison.

Case Studies


Working with All Together Cumbria, we welcomed 18-year-old Jonathan on a five-week business masterclass. Jonathan has cerebral palsy, short term memory problems, and peripheral vision loss. “My work experience was put on hold due to COVID-19 and this is the first year that I have been able to do work experience; my time at Story was an unforgettable experience and I found it very useful to give me an insight into the business.”

Case Studies


We welcomed Lauren Ross to Story Scotland in 2022, as a People Development Coordinator. “I can honestly say I love working for Story. I was worried coming back to work with my daughter being nine months at the time so I’m very glad to say it’s been a great decision. Everyone has been very welcoming, and my line manager has been especially supportive with my transition back to work from maternity leave.”

Case Studies


We work alongside a wide variety of employability organisations to help ensure we attract people who are ready for work and help them get back into employment, and also to advise us on any additional needs individuals may have. We work with prison employability teams, parole officers and social enterprises to offer opportunities to ex-offenders and people who are Released on Temporary Licence. This includes work experience, longer term work placements, part and full time employment opportunities, soft skills courses and technical qualifications.

Case Studies


We are committed to welcoming and supporting ex-Armed Forces within Team Story. Simon Higgens, our Business Development Director, was a proud member of the Royal Engineers, before starting his career in the Rail industry. Simon leads our commitment to the Armed Forces, and as part of this, was instrumental in us signing the Armed Forces Covenant. We also received the Employer Recognition Scheme Gold Award from the Ministry of Defence (MoD) for our work to actively promote the military as a career to the Armed Forces Community.
