People are at the heart of what we do
Darke & Taylor believes that a strong relationship with our workforce is the key to creating a successful electrical engineering company.
The directors play an important part in day to day operations, and bring their extensive experience to every project. Furthermore, in an industry where the extensive use of sub-contract and agency labour is common, we are proud of our commitment to the direct employment of our site and office staff. This ensures that a skilled and reliable team are on hand at all times.
We invest in our team by providing lasting careers, increasing skills through continual training, and encouraging new talent through our apprenticeship schemes. Because our workforce is motivated and supported, they always strive to deliver projects on time and to the highest standards.
As members of the Joint Industry Board, all our employees can receive a range of benefits, including pensions, private healthcare and sick pay. This helps to foster commitment, loyalty and dedication, which provides a significant advantage over the extensive use of subcontract and agency labour when it comes the completing projects to the highest standard.
In 2012 our Managing Director, Paul McNaughton, was appointed as the President of the Electrical Contractors’ Association. As an active member of the ECA’s Education and Training, and Employee Relations Committees, a seat on the national board of the JIB, and Chair of the London, South East and Southern RJIB he was identified as the ideal person for the post who could bring 38 years experience of working in the industry and a passion for skills development.
