Our people are key to the success of our business. 

We therefore invest in our employees promoting motivation and recognition.

We realise that recruiting and developing employees from all areas of the community makes us a more effective business and a vibrant and interesting company to work for.

The quality of the finished project is one of our top priorities.



The company has always offered young people a stable foundation for a rewarding career throughout its long history.

We invest in apprentices, year on year, offering young people from schools and community organisations the chance to learn and develop their future.

Achieving the right balance of technical skills and on-site practical experience, trainees build long-term relationships with a dedicated mentor throughout their apprenticeship and working life at RJ Leighfield & Sons.



Investors in People 

We have been Investors in People accredited since 2009 and are proud of this achievement. This improves performance by encouraging and investing in employee development and skills which are clearly linked to business aims and objectives. Our dedication to this accreditation has brought real benefits through employee communication and engagement and an understanding by all employees of where they fit into the bigger picture and contribute to business success. Our employee development is tailored to individual needs which in turn ensures that we retain talent and have people who are highly skilled and motivated.
