The SLR culture is underpinned by our 5Bs which, in short is to Be safe, Belong, Be trusted, Be yourself and Be Successful.

We know it can be difficult and frustrating applying for roles, wondering if the role is right for you and if your experience is right for SLR. Many people won’t apply for roles unless they feel they tick every box on the checklist. At SLR we look for many different skills and technical competencies and we’re always looking for how new team members can add value to the business and to our culture. If you think this role isn’t quite for you, but you have a desire to work with us, – then we’d still love to hear from you!

We have committed to being a Climate Neutral Business by 2030 and have a long-term commitment to align with global net zero ambitions.
