Supporting Local Education Programmes
Darcy commits to support education programmes and as such, we collaborate with local schools and colleges to encourage a wider audience to enter the construction industry.
We also actively:
- Provide internships and work experience programmes
- Support apprenticeships
- Arrange and provide career management, mentoring and training programmes
Provide a high standard of working conditions
Darcy believes that our employees are our family and we take pride in providing a high standard of working conditions, be it on or off site.
We provide benefits that are rare in private construction companies as we believe it is our duty to look after our team.
We endeavour to provide:
- Private health care for all our employees
- Flexible working for employees
- Where possible, work-from-home plans
- Competitive salaries to our employees
Responsible purchasing and supply chain
Darcy supports local business and attempts to use local suppliers as much as possible.
Over 90% of our supply chains are based locally to our projects and we have actively supported family businesses through generations of construction orders.
Minimise waste and recycle as 1st option
Darcy actively supports recycling construction materials and ensures that the 1st choice is always to see if any material can be salvaged.
Our projects are managed comprehensively, and all materials are ordered to ensure that the project minimises its waste. Wherever possible any waste is issued to recycling centres or offered to charitable clients who may have a need for left over materials.
Supporting local community groups
Darcy supports local community groups by providing 100 free hours per annum of pro bono work allowing charitable organisations to utilise our expert advice and craftsmanship.
Volunteering in the community
The Darcy Team volunteers with the local community and are proud to spear head the walk and talk scheme where we all commit to pair up with local neighbours, friends, families and groups to encourage mental wellbeing through the difficult Covid lock down year.
Each year Darcy promotes a charity and ensures that fund raising takes place in fun and wonderful ways! This can include Sober October, ‘fun runs’, 100miles walk and talk!
We actively foster team workmanship with both our employees and our collaborative partners. Fundraising can be a great way to bring our joint values into place whilst keenly giving to charity.
Equality & Diversity holds firm as Corporate Social Responsibility and here at Darcy, it is a key player in our Company beliefs. We truly believe that multiplicity and inclusion within us makes our business successful and a better place to work. As a construction company, we take our social responsibilities seriously and ensure that all our staff and supply chains are measured in accordance with their merits, qualifications, and ability to perform the relevant duties for the role.
We believe that the construction profession needs a disparate workforce to develop innovative skills and knowledges. We believe that it is our industries responsibility to challenge barriers to entry and encourage a more diverse profession.
Darcy operates a rigorous Equality and Diversity Policy, and we treat everyone in the same way, never discriminating unlawfully.
We provide a workplace free from unfairness and are proud of our Company Equality and Diversity values which are truly visible and acted upon; we ensure that our staff is made up of equal amounts of female employees, with many of them being in senior management positions.
