Great Work Life, Freedom to Earn As Much As I Need

“I love my job – great work/life balance. I’m given the opportunity to progress and earn as much as I like and/or need. My feel I’m paid well for the work I do. Engineers can have the opportunity travel throughout Europe (Italy, France & Germany) and training at Acorn is second to none. I have had the opportunity to gain an NVQ. The management and tech support are good. Overtime and extra money can be earned through bonuses and/or working away.”

Room For Progression & Friendly Workplace

“I started in the customer service department and whilst in training, we were navigated through the different departments and given a brief description on their roles within the company. I mentioned early in training that I liked the sound of the planning department and thought their role of organising the engineers and their jobs appeared fun but also challenging, and that it would be something I’d like to try in the future. I finished training and started in customer services and was immediately rewarded for doing well and quickly becoming top call taker. I was praised for the job I was doing and asked if I would like to move to planning as the managers knew I had taken an interest during training, saw how well I took to customer services and believed I would be a good fit. I moved to planning and have loved working there so far. I get along well with the engineers and enjoy working with the planning team. It was the best move for me, and I appreciated management for acknowledging what I mentioned in the beginning.”

Productive and Fun Workplace

“I’ve worked for Acorn Stairlifts since I was 19 years old. I’ve now just turned 40 and am still happy with my job meeting the older generation and putting a smile back on their faces after giving them the ability to regain their confidence and stay in their family home. I’ve been given some fantastic opportunities to work abroad in the US, Germany and Italy. I’ve also completed NVQ levels 1, 2 and 3 in Lift Engineering and was given the opportunity to complete and pass my Class 1 HGV driver’s license, all courtesy of Acorn... you can further your skills and career within the Company.”
