Our People

Natta is a family business that takes great pride in the opportunities, training and security that it offers its employees. We have strived to grow an open and fair environment which has created a loyal and hardworking workforce.

Natta is an equal opportunities employer. We have developed a culture where all groups and individuals engaged in, or affected by, the business are treated with the highest standards of integrity. We recruit personnel whose capability, experience and qualifications are appropriate to the positions available. Where practical we hope to achieve and maintain a workforce which broadly reflects the local community in which we operate.

Our focus on training for the future both on site and in the office has led us to achieving approved employer training status from the Chartered Institution of Civil Engineers and Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors. All of our staff are either CSCS and / or CPCS qualified. Our managers and supervisors are all SMSTS, SSSTS, NRSWA, NVQ and 4 day first aiders as a minimum. Most of the personnel in our commercial department are chartered and we have several post-graduates. We have high levels of staff retention, with one of the lowest staff turnover in the industry.

We aim to recruit 5% of our workforce through apprenticeship schemes; in partnership with local further education colleges. We offer a plant apprenticeship scheme for developing young talented individuals. We currently employ 10 ICE trainees, 4 RICS trainees and 2 plant apprentices. See our ICE Certificate.

We are evolving our safety culture to encompass wider wellbeing in our workforce by involving yearly health and wellbeing checks, insurance and mentoring. We obtained OHSAS 18001 in 2013.

Staff inclusion via regular communication is important to Natta. All staff have access to the intranet. Regularly all staff receive a company newsletter and are encouraged to provide innovative ideas and feedback to management. Regular e-mails, memos, safety notices and quality notices are circulated and management meet staff at weekly toolbox talks and weekly health and safety, quality and environmental alerts to share knowledge of good and bad practice to ensure continuous improvement.

Performance reviews are conducted regularly following standards set by Investors in People.
