"I applied for a role at Safestore because of the investment they put into growing and developing their people. Part of my role is to assist the day to day operations of my store as well as support and guide new trainees who are starting their journey with us. My biggest achievement so far was being selected to take part in the Store Manager Development program. This has allowed me to further hone in on my skills and train myself to be ready for the next step in my career with Safestore."
"Safestore has provided me a great opportunity to meet and interact with new people and build my working confidence. It’s a great company who invest an amorous amount of time into their people by providing the opportunity to learn and develop new skills. Every day is different, and for me, the most important thing is that we have support from the other colleagues around us."
"I joined Safestore as it presented a completely new challenge for me and I saw they were Investors In People. My job role is extremely varied; I get fully involved with all tasks - from sales, coaching my team and account management, to maintenance, training and developing my team and new colleagues joining our business. My biggest achievement in Safestore to date, is being asked to manage our Flagship store in Battersea Park. The best thing about working for Safestore is definitely the culture. There's a great atmosphere in our stores and across the regions. We have clear paths for development for all team members. The company also recognise and reward hard work with a great benefits package at all levels."
