What is the best part of working for Dunmow Group? 

The people - especially the drivers. Everyone here is so supportive, everyday someone asks me how i am getting on with my coursework and course. It's also nice to talk down to the yard and give the skip drivers a wave!

What is the favourite part of your job? 

I have loved learning about how everything works and how to keep things compliant, before working here I had no idea how many rules there are. I also love the general admin side of my job, it can be really satisfying!
