In this climate, we need the very best people to succeed. Our customers rely on us and we are proud of our reputation for successful delivery, which is why our customers ask us back.

We are looking for people who want to push themselves and who want to make a mark with our customers and the company that they work for. You will join a highly supportive team of like-minded colleagues and will have the opportunity to work on diverse and stimulating projects that will stretch you. In return you will receive an excellent benefits package.

For those who are early in their careers, we will encourage you to use your initiative and take responsibility, whilst those with more experience will be given the freedom to lead.

We want our people to improve the way we do things, both within Raptor and the communities with whom we live and work. We value your ideas and want you to take a full part in helping to shape our and your own future and make a difference to the community.

We are a growing company and are actively recruiting now. We want to hear from talented and driven people who identify with our culture and share our values.
