I love the ethos of the company; we produce world class products and provide services that are second to none while looking out for each other and recognising everyone’s value in the team. That’s what it’s always been about for me… the people.  I’m very proud to be a part of the Selwood family.

Driver

Working for Selwood as a driver, I am treated as a person, not just an employee.

I love the variety of jobs that I do. In the morning I will be with one customer and in the afternoon, I’ll be with another customer in a totally different area. To Selwood the customer always comes first – we always do the best we can for the customer and customers rely on Selwood employees for their knowledge and experience.  

At Selwood we always do every job to the best of our ability and the company also has a great emphasis on always making sure its employees are safe whilst at work and following all the health and safety regulations.
