Thought they were going to be a great company to work but unfortunately turned out not to be.They expect a lot of commitment but not all of their employees so this. Those that do get no recognition.Very disappointing, stressful and demoralising
Opportunity to travel
Long hours. Too much emphasis on commercial over health and safety
Lots of helpful colleagues. Loved the work environment.Spent half a day training and then hit the ground running. Was able to add to my skills and knowledge. As long as the work was finished on time and all work completed they were happy and you were able to be your own boss.
Easy going colleagues
Not a permanent position
Although I have plenty of admin experience, I haven’t worked within the construction industry before, so it was a learning curve for me. Throughout my time here though I have found my colleagues to be approachable, supportive and down to earth with the attitude that they trust me within my role. I have gained a lot of valuable experience that I can take forward.
Enjoyed my experience working as labourer on DG ONE, management treat you like your someone and not a number,shame it was only temporary and they couldn't say if I had a job after project ended or would of still been there
The project staff were all very focussed on the successful conclusion of the project and when the time came everyone clubbed together, were fully committed to achieving handover. The hardest part was the excessive hours required as no addition staff were introduced to lighten the load.

Excellent company with opportunities of career growth. Fast paced with excellent learning development with gaining knowledge from experienced management. Large variety of the range and scope of work undertaken providing vast experience in a number of sectors.
A typical day usual consists of working away and finishing reports in hotel rooms around 1000pm.with the average mileage covered approximately 3000 miles per month travelling all over the UK.
I would begin work at 8am, wasting no time getting straight into my tasks; by filing word processing, daily with phone and email enquiries, followed by taking a short break at 10am, then going back to work to finish at 5pm. I learned a lot within this job and it's giving me more people and hospitality skills.
Met many amazing people.
Distance to travel to work.
