Life at Leyton as told by our employees

I started Leyton right at the beginning of the pandemic, and though I was a little worried about how starting a new job while working completely remotely would go, everyone here made me feel extremely welcomed and part of the team. Since then, I have settled into a great team and have used the wide range of resources and opportunities that Leyton has provided me to develop my skills and progress my career in a way I wouldn’t have believed I could when I was at my previous company.

Leyton has been a great graduate job after leaving University. After being uncertain of the career path I wanted to take, Leyton has allowed me to grow and develop my skillset as well as opening up many further job progression opportunities.

Alana Argue Commercial Executive

Having worked in both the sales and consultancy side of the business, I can honestly say that Leyton helps you achieve your goals. With various avenues in the business to consider, I don’t believe anything is out of reach, and know that my managers will support me on whichever path I take.

Sarah Howden Senior Financial Consultant

Sarah Howden

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time working with Leyton. Prior to working here, I worked in the Aerospace/Defence Engineering industry which can be quite a narrow field; The breadth of work that Leyton has allowed me to experience has broadened my knowledge immeasurably across numerous industries of engineering, architecture, and construction. Leyton has also allowed me to advance my career significantly as I joined as a Technical Consultant and have worked my way up to now being a Team Leader in one of the UK Consulting Cells. Whilst the work is fantastic at Leyton, the best thing about working here are my colleagues as all the Teams at Leyton across consulting and sales create a wonderful atmosphere and an excellent place to work.

Robert Young Consultant Manager

Robert Young

Leyton recognizes hard work, I have been given the support, tools, and opportunities to advance my career in sales and get results. Great place to work.

Phil Rattigan Commercial Executive

Leyton fosters its core values which empower me to excel and grow on both personal and professional levels on a daily basis. A true reflection of this is the continued expansion of the company, which offers endless growth opportunities. The work environment? I’ll just say the pride of being a Leytonian has no equal.
