Why Markey Group?
We are committed to investing in the development of our people, whether they are just starting out or are already very well established in their careers.
We believe that learning on the job is the best way to gain good quality experience and skills and improve people's lives, which is why we took the opportunity to utilise the Government's kickstart scheme to help introduce young adults to the world of work during the recent pandemic.
We also support a number apprenticeships, professional development programmes and work experience placements within the Group.
Our Recruitment Process
We value every application we receive, which is why:
We recently launched our applicant tracking system to help us manage our recruitment processes better
We respond to applicants as soon as possible - we don't just wait for the closing date for applications to get back to them
We would not contact an applicant's references until they receive an offer of employment with us
We give open and honest feedback to applicants if they wish to receive it
We ask for equality and diversity information during the application process to enable us to monitor the effectiveness and inclusiveness of our recruitment processes
We encourage people to register their interest in working with Markey Group, even if there are no current suitable positions available

What Qualities Do We Look For In Our PEOPLE?
What Our People Say...
“I initially joined the Premiere team in 2005 as Despatch Operative (loading trucks) then got promoted to Despatch Supervisor. However, I have since completely changed my career pathway and, with Markey Group’s support, progressed to an Assistant Management Accountant role in the Group Services team and was promoted to Management Accountant in April 2018. It’s been a really interesting journey and there have been many, many changes in the 15+ years I have worked here! Most recently we introduced a new Finance system to help our function get fit for the future and I am one of the ‘super users’ for the system, so I can help and support the businesses with using the system to optimise their processes.”
"I’m an Assistant Quantity Surveyor in Markey Construction and really enjoy being part of the Markey Group. I particularly like the colleagues I work with and the flexibility of the work I do, which helps me with my work-life balance. I also have a very clear plan of development and always feel that I can bring my whole self to work and be the best I can possibly be."
“I joined Markey Building Services team as Office Administrator in our Birmingham Office over 5 years ago and have loved every minute of it! I just love my work and the team I work with. There have been loads of highlights, challenges and even some awards along the way. I actually can’t believe how quickly the last 5 years have gone, but am looking forward to many more years here in the future.”

One project we've been heavily involved in is the redevelopment of Gloucester Boat House.
