We're a Co-Owned business
Those working for our estates businesses are also co-owners.
Our majority shareholder, Paul Sewell, moved 25% of the company’s shares into an employee ownership trust, meaning our people are now Co-Owners in the business, giving them a greater say in how the business is run and the potential to share in any company profits.
driven by our culture
It’s what sets us apart. Doing the right thing by our people, caring for our planet, and having an impact on the places where we work is what drives us every day. What unites us is our culture, and our core behaviours that drive our actions every day. And that’s why our clients, customers and partners trust us to deliver.
The Sewell World
We recognise that people spend a lot of their time at work, which is why we have lots of opportunities for people to do what they enjoy and have an impact on the world that goes beyondtheir career, the office, site, or store.
From regular social events and wellbeing activities, to flexible working and five paid volunteering days every year, a career with Sewell is about much more than just work.
Armed Forces Covenant
In 2021, the Sewell Group pledged to support the armed forces community by signing the Armed Forces Covenant. As a Group, this is something we’ve always been passionate about, and signing the covenant has reinforced our commitment to help those who have served, and their families, to find employment.
In 2021, we made a pledge to triple our investment in graduates, apprentices and trainees over the next five years in support of local economic recovery and support those who may struggle to enter the world of work. Our Gateway Project provides participants with a mix of real-world experiences and motivational activities that will provide skills that will not only support the participants career journeys, but also give them transferable life skills too.
We rarely recruit externally
“We’ve got a really strong family culture. A Lot of our people are grown from within, we very rarely recruit externally for management or supervisory positions, they’re all internal.”
Katherine was studying a childcare diploma when she took on a part time job at a former Sewell shop in Swanland in 2002. She’s now our Sales Director, working behind the scenes carefully planning which products prices and promotions will encourage customers onto the forecourts.
