What defines us

Our culture is what gives us our competitive advantage, and we truly believe our emphasis on our culture and values is one of our key qualities that make Portwest a great place to work. 

Here at Portwest we don’t believe that financial remuneration is the sole route to a happy workplace. Our culture and values speak a different language. Overall, we like to think of our culture as supportive and collaborative. Our structure is generally flat, with a highly approachable management team from Line Managers to the Board of Directors. 

The general feeling within our team is one of inclusiveness where superiority or rank are not a barrier to collaboration and conversation.
