More than just a role in retail

We’ve been a Sunday Times 100 Best Company to Work For since 2009. This means we strive to be a great place to work so we can be a great, innovative company to deal with. We offer fixed shifts that you can plan your life around easily and are always looking out for passionate, enthusiastic people who go the extra mile!

We value our team members, which is why we choose to pay well above the National Living Wage. When you’re part of our team, you’ll also be part of the Sewell Group, which provides you with some excellent core benefits. These perks are designed to reward you in ways that suit your lifestyle. 

Pumping up the pay
We’re one of the highest paying forecourts in the area – with our basic wage starting from £12 per hour from April 2024, and those working night shifts on £12.50.

 

Generous bonus scheme
On top of your regular earnings, we also offer regular bonuses to top these up!

 

In-store discount
Our in-store staff discount means you’ll be making savings when getting your essentials and topping up your fuel too.

 

Fixed shifts
Our team members work fixed shifts that they can plan their lives around, with opportunity for overtime too.

We have many learning and development opportunities at Sewell on the go to help you grow within your role. Our Management Training programme helps you reach your potential, covering all aspects of working on and managing a Sewell on the go site.

 

There any many other learning and development opportunities available to you, these include:

– Online learning
– Apprenticeships
– Appraisals
– Mentorship programme
– Learning and development fund

We pride ourselves on the importance we place on the health and wellbeing of our team members. Along with being part of a supportive team, our people benefit from:

 

– 10% off gym discount
– Grocery Aid
– Benevolent fund
– Free eye tests (I think these are for all not just people at screens)
– BHSF Health cash plan

Feedback from our people is really important to us. How can we know we’re doing the right thing for them, if we don’t ask?

 

Part of our culture is openess and approachability – our people know they can provide feedback either through our regular engagement surveys or directly to their managers or the senior team in a less formal manner.

 

We also believe it’s important for our people to know about how the business is performing and what’s going on in the industry so we have regular catch ups to share this information.

Involvement in sustainable initiatives
We have numerous sustainable initiatives across our stores – from solar panels to wildflower meadows and even some bee hives!

 

There are opportunities to get involved in these – either ones we already have, or if you’ve got an idea you think might work.

Volunteering days
Each team member hs the option to complete up to five paid volunteering days each year – doing whatever you’d liketo, so long as it’s something that supports a local cause or charity.

 

We have relationships with the PATT Foundation where you can go and plant trees, or if you’d rather walk dogs, then you could spend the day at Hull Animal Welfare Trust.

There’s also discounted gym membership and staff volunteering days which give you the opportunity to give back to the community and charities that mean something to you.
