Our People

Playing our part

At the heart of all organisations are its people, achieving its vision, living its values and providing creativity, determination and tenacity. A variety of different approaches tailored to our individual operating companies are used to support, train and develop our people to maximise both job performance and job satisfaction.

However, the role of our employees goes far beyond the commercial success of Peel and we are delighted with the role they play in our partnership activities with community organisations, the time they devote through activitities such as becoming school governors, sitting on partnership boards, and giving their time freely to support and mentor local organisations in the areas where they live and work.

Volunteering activity is widespread across The Peel Group, recent examples include:

  • Each year a team of runners from Peel have run the Manchester 10k to raise money for charity.


  • Staff from MediaCityUK supported the work of Salford Rangers in maintaining and improving the green spaces in Salford for the benefit of residents and local communities


  • Employees at our Clydeport operation worked closely with staff at the Ardgowan Hospice to link a visit of the QE2 to the port with raising money for the hospice. Over £8,000 was collected which Clydeport then topped up to £10,000.


We are also looking to better establish health and wellbeing information for our people, further promote topics such as volunteering and community engagement, and improve our communication processes including an improved intranet site, as we seek to maintain and improve our reputation as an excellent employer.

“Peel is a family owned group and we retain family values. We believe in providing our people with careers not jobs and encourage and support them to make a difference in their communities”
