Our People are at the core of what makes United Living successful.  Our ambitious growth targets bring with them opportunities for individuals to grow with our organisation. We want to encourage our people to be not only technically skilled but forward-thinking and passionate about the work that we do.

We have a people focussed culture that encourages everyone to fulfil their potential and recognises that different people want different things from a workplace.  We provide a portfolio of learning opportunities to enable you to develop in line with your ambitions.

Our range of learning and development opportunities combines a mix of workshop-based, e-learning and work experience.   We also support professional development and chartered status with relevant institutes.  We encourage leadership and management development along- side behavioural and technical competencies.  Our approach to coaching and mentoring is to ensure a culture of self -development and continuous improvement.   

This approach to learning and development is an integral part of our Investors in People accreditation.

Your development journey starts with a robust local induction programme.  Every new employee also attends a Welcome Day at our head office in Swanley, hosted by our Executive Team, to learn more about the culture of United Living and our vision for Growth.

Learning and Development



Assistant Quantity Surveyor

"I was given the opportunity to take part in the Junior Board after being selected by my Managing Director.
The Junior Board was an opportunity to experience situations that I would be unlikely to encounter at this early stage in my career and also helped to broaden my knowledge of the business, as a whole."

Contracts Manager

"A really enjoyable and insightful course. I came away with lots of valuable management tools and techniques to use across my projects. I’d highly recommend this for anyone who has a responsibility to manage at United Living."

Head of Business Development and Partnerships

"The formation of the Junior Board created a positive platform for talented individuals from all regions and areas of United Living to come together and create a ‘think-tank’ for positive progression of projects for the future betterment of our company.
The experience has been immensely positive and offers members the opportunity to gain corporate exposure beyond their daily positions and responsibilities, to ultimately act as a platform for personal growth and progression."

Senior Site Manager

"I would like to thank my line managers for giving me opportunities within United Living and for their continued support in making me a better manager."

Project Manager

"I really enjoyed the professional manager’s course. It was an excellent opportunity to network with colleagues.
The course was well organised with good and interesting content and the notes that you come away with are easy to implement into your daily role on site.
I would definitely recommend the course for fellow managers."
