Project Administrator in Bridgwater

Good to get your foot in the door
I’ve never known a company to invest so much in their staff. If you want to qualify in something, so long as it’s related to your job role (or a role you want within Telent) they will put you through your training. I have worked here for nearly a year and I’m so happy and settled.

Decent place to work but poor management
Worked here for just over a year after being told there was 7/8 years work minimum Good workforce but appalling leadership. It seems anyone can apply for roles in management and usually get them even when they are blatantly out of their depth
