Testimonial

“Since starting my career with A W Edwards as a Cadet, I have been presented with amazing career opportunities and have been fortunate enough to work with extremely knowledgeable and inspirational people who have supported me and helped me gain the knowledge and confidence I now have. I feel extremely valued within the organisation and feel that A W Edwards has invested a lot of energy into promoting gender diversity and providing equal opportunities.”

Fatima Saleh

Project Coordinator

“The business has always had a family feel to it. I joined the business as an apprentice carpenter, following my father’s footsteps in 1985! Throughout my time here, I have seen how A W Edwards innovate and respond to new ideas, delivering increasingly complex and a wide range of projects. I enjoy developing our next generation of leaders, following my own development here. I can’t imagine working anywhere else. “
