‘After Boels approached me about a depot manager position, I immediately immersed myself in learning more about the organization. A couple of conversations later, and I was sold on the opportunities at Boels – not only on a commercial level, but also in terms of career opportunities. Helping customers, achieving targets and working on my personal development really energizes me. However, in my opinion, effective teamwork is just as important as hard graft. And both are rewarded at Boels. As a depot manager, I'm keen to get the most out of my team and branch. And I consistently apply that mindset to my daily work. Being the depot manager means that I tend to spend a lot of time in the office, but you'll regularly find me on the work floor, too. I routinely help out at the customer service desk, support the depot technician, assist the field staff, and prepare equipment for the drivers. In short, there's more than enough challenge and variety!’
‘What immediately strikes you at Boels, is the camaraderie. Employees are extremely easy-going and always ready to lend each other a helping hand. The atmosphere on the work floor is fantastic. I feel genuinely appreciated. And my work remains a fun challenge. In short, I thoroughly enjoy working at Boels. As an area technician, I drive from branch to branch or am out resolving on-site faults. Sometimes I can fix a problem at the touch of a button, but on other occasions I may need to tinker around on a machine for an hour or so. In other words, no two days are ever the same. Boels also provides plenty of scope for career progression. The company offers employees the opportunity to pursue various courses and training programs. The key attributes for a successful career at Boels? Perseverance, teamwork, and a creative, customer-friendly, non nine-to-five mentality. If that sounds like you, then Boels is your dream employer!'
‘Do you know what really energizes me? Happy colleagues and everything running like clockwork. I also get a kick from knowing our customers are satisfied. When I compare it to other companies in the rental sector, Boels is head and shoulders above the competition. The rental fleet is consistently up to date, and our quotes are extremely competitive. Boels also gives those employees who show initiative ample opportunity to prove themselves. And I speak from my own experience when I say: that's incredibly motivating. There's also plenty of variety in an average working day at Boels. One minute you're busy answering incoming e-mails, and the next you're dealing with a customer face-to-face in the branch – or even performing light maintenance on a machine in between. That variation really is the best thing about this job. You're also given free rein in your work activities, which demands a certain responsibility that I relish.’
‘QSHE stands for Quality, Health, Safety, and Environment. As a QSHE coordinator, I help people and companies create a safe and healthy workplace. I also monitor whether the requisite regulatory frameworks are being complied with. I've enjoyed considerable progression since working at Boels. I started out as a Facilities Management employee, which was certainly a fun and educational period. However, I ultimately aspired to a role in QSHE. I therefore pursued three studies, which enabled me to move up to my current role as QSHE Coordinator. What strikes me most, and what I also hear from my colleagues, is that no two days are ever the same at Boels. That's because you're invariably dealing with diverse disciplines within the organization. Working together with my colleagues actively energizes me, as does delivering an innovative, well-functioning product. And the short communication lines between Boels's management and employees aren't something you find at every organization.’
