Congratulations to Wayne, our Divisional Director. He started his journey as an estimating apprenticeship through the B.E.S.T training scheme, progressing from an apprentice mechanical estimator, Project Manager, department Manager to his Director role.
He has just reached the milestone of 25 years long service.
Our Long-Service Employees
30 of our 135 employees have dedicated over 20 years to our firm. Together, that is a whopping 762 years of service! From site operatives to CAD engineers and admin roles to workshop fabricators, our employees have found different pathways to success.
In the last year alone, we have welcomed five new apprentices – three in building services and two in the maintenance department. A significant number of our staff members joined us as apprentices and are still progressing with the company.
Careers, Progression & People at Fletchers
As we near our 40th anniversary at Fletchers Engineering, we are proud of more than just how long we have been operating. We have always consistently placed people at the heart of our business, valuing and promoting career progression. It’s a big part of why so many choose to build their careers with us.
At Fletchers we offer flexibility, recognising that everyone has their strengths in differing areas. As our employees navigate life’s milestones, we adjust their roles to suit changing priorities, ensuring a balance between work and family life. In our ranks, we have six families spanning multiple generations.
Not only do we offer adaptive roles, but the importance of a living wage has never been lost on us. It’s not just a tick box exercise – it’s making sure our team can feel supported and have what they need to live well. Combined with benefits like our attendance bonus, a major reason our employees stay with us for so long.

We have been around since 1985, so we understand that it’s not just about business. It’s about the chances we give our people to grow. Everyone, from those just starting out to those that have been with us for years, play a part in who we are. We care about our staff, our neighbours in the community, and doing our bit for the planet.
