Why Surpass?

Career development

We place a strong emphasis on staff development and encourage people to undertake training. We recognize that the success of our company is dependent upon the effective use of our people and upon each employee building a valuable portfolio of skills. For those with the talent and enthusiasm to succeed there are opportunities to develop your skills and career with us. We appoint, train, develop and promote on the basis of merit and ability alone, with all vacancies being advertised internally. Our employees attend an appraisal meeting every six months with their line manager. The appraisal system is designed to:

  • Assist staff in performing to the best of their abilities, maximizing their job satisfaction and contribution to the company’s objectives
  • Identify individual training needs that feed into the overall company training plan
  • Highlight the potential that each individual has to develop within their current position or into another role.

Work environment

We have an informal but professional culture – a working style that engenders a strong team ethic and dynamic, innovative environment. There is always a range of out-of-work activities to get involved in, including pool nights and quizzes as well as annual Christmas and summer events.
