Sharpsmart is a dynamic and forward thinking company, that really invest in their people. From the start of the recruitment process you are fully supported and communication is excellent. After joining you are made to feel like part of the team straight away, and the whole team, regardless of location, make you feel welcome and help with anything you need.
Flexible, supportive, career progression
SharpSmart is a fast growing company with a fantastic core product which makes a massive positive contribution to healthcare safety and the environment.The working culture is fast-paced and suits ambitious and collaborative staff members . Being pro-active and speaking up is rewarded by management.
Fast growing, constant change
The level of communication throughout the recruitment and onboarding process gave me confidence that Sharpsmart really care about finding the right people to join the team. Since joining a few months ago, the company has continued to meet and exceed my expectations. Everyone I've encountered has been really welcoming and helpful, starting with an induction process in the first few weeks to get to know the people and processes around the business (so far as you can during COVID/lockdown). There's been the opportunity to shape/make the role my own. They genuinely welcome new ideas so they can improve and grow the business. The role is fast-paced, demanding and varied, but also rewarding as it feel like I am making an active contribution to the company and customers. Everyone across the business has been especially busy recently providing services to our healthcare customers but from what I have seen there's a real team effort to get the job done whilst keeping a relaxed and supportive working environment. So far so good.
Friendly team, nice new office, growing business, career progression opportunities
I have worked for Sharpsmart for almost 12 months now and it has been a great career move; Sharpsmart is a fast paced progressive company where you are given autonomy in your job role. I was provided with a detailed induction plan including external training courses and unlimited support from colleagues. The Sharpsmart team are really supportive and we are all focused on doing a great job for the business. Working for a company that is expanding is exciting and I would recommend the company to others as a great place to work.
Exciting working environment, constantly learning, positive management, very successful company
No health and safety at all no matter how many times you bring it to management attention. Company is a joke. No training on anything but expect everyone to use machinery without SSOW and risk assessments. Turn over of staff is unbelievable as the job is that bad.
Home time and payday
Working for them
If you like been lied to and worked like a donkey and have no health and safety knowledge this is for you I know a lot of reviews give bad feedback but this company really are rock bottom a plant manager who wants to be Your friend a northern area manager who is the same but both will lie through there back teeth Then when on there own will actually slag each other off the place is demoralising and stab you in the back then when there on there own they actually slag each other off
If you want to be lied to from day 1 then you will enjoy working here even HR ignore your emails, the company is toxic from the top to the bottom I don't think that the owner knows what goes on in the UK as they have the usual blocking systems in place. There are no health and safety systems in place in fact at the Normanton plant you could easily break your ankle in the uncovered drains all across the loading bays. The management dont care even when you point out any problems they just fob you off. They are happy to tell you what they think you want to hear but don't really care as long as the work gets done. Very toxic environment to work in. YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED
Starting to work for them
Sharpsmart is an exciting place to work with strong values and great culture. The company takes care and attention to personal growth and development. It is a fast paced working environment where new opportunities arise everyday. Every member of the team is valued and being able to to work with other colleagues as a team make working at Sharpsmart more enjoyable.
Sharpsmart is experiencing an incredible journey of growth at the moment and along with that comes exciting and hard challenges, but also opportunities to grow and develop skills. Sharpsmart is genuinely interested in their workforce's wellbeing and views and I personally, have had fantastic support from line management in two of the companies main departments. The culture is great, everyday is exciting and we have a great balance of work and fun.
Supportive line management and lots of opportunities for progression

Is Indeed your favorite place to learn about companies?
As a current employee, it is exciting to be part of such a innovative and dynamic company that is consistently growing. There are some excellent systems in place to contribute your ideas and loads of knowledge and resources across all departments, not one of which won’t offer support when asked. I’m really looking forward to my future here.
Will promise the world but not deliver. Management will act like you are best mates and use you then stab you in the back as soon as your back is turned. Change contract terms with no consultation and have to chase them for any sort of answer which was usually just bollocks. Poor health and safety which needs sorting out. Had 7 wages from them and 3 were wrong.
During my years working at Sharpsmart the business has grown massively, but the ethos has stayed the same throughout, with a really strong team in all elements of the business working to support each other regardless of the department or position they work in. The Management Team have driven the company to bring new and innovative products and solutions to the UK market, whilst ensuring the whole team have a clear understanding of the key goals and core values of the company. We have an solid work life balance, and as the global business is still a family run business, there is a great deal of support from the company management team when life gets in the way.
This company is set in its ways and do not like change. They get as much information out of you to benefit their new ventures as they can. The senior management team is made up of very young employees who have no life experience and dive into things making bad judgments and decisions. The national ops manager needs a firework put under his office chair and ignited. Everything takes an age to get done and you cannot make a decision without running it by people who quite frankly couldn't run a bath.
Sharpsmart welcomes you in from day one, Here we operate as friends as well as work colleagues. Since joining I have had plenty of support from all levels and I have found they listen to the staff to help improve the daily processes in the business. After six months I have got to know most employees on a personal level which isn't always possible in every business.
Here you get a say to help improve daily functions.
Hit the ground running so not found too many cons in my first months with the business.
I’ve been with the business 10years and have had multiple opportunities to advance my career with experience through internal and external training and earned promotion. Lots of support from the CEO down to the passionate team I work with everyday. The business invests in a people and culture focus to support growth and retention of talent. We get friends and customers always asking if there are jobs available!
Great Values, best in the world products, amazing teamBonus and recognition perks
Equality is minimum to non-existent at Sharpsmart. You are discriminated against due to age, gender, experience and/or appearance. Management is very poor and all very unprofessional. Systems are outdated and the company does not appear to want to invest in better systems.
