As a mature business we are proud of our track record and history. With timely delivery of sites clearly emphasised in the new NPPF, our ability to identify opportunities, mitigate constraints and secure consents that are implemented within an average of 2 years is one of our key advantages in the land promotion process.

A Socially Responsible Business and Employer

The Gleeson Apprenticeship Scheme

Since 2010 the Gleeson Apprenticeship Scheme has trained over 80 young people and we have a record 32 apprentices starting in September this year. The scheme provides invaluable site experience in the bricklaying and joinery trades, whilst allowing them to study for an NVQ at a local college.

Living Wage foundation

Employees and sub-contractors are all paid the Living Wage, or higher. The only exception to this is for apprentices, where we pay above the Government’s guidance for apprentices.

The Gleeson Community Sports Foundation

Since the inception of the Foundation five years ago we have sponsored 79 junior sports teams, providing brand new kit and funding for teams in and around our development locations.

The Gleeson Community Challenge

Following the success of our inaugural Community Challenge in 2015 we launched the competition again in 2017, inviting charities and non-profit organisations to apply for a makeover of their facilities. Last year, three successful organisations benefited from a makeover, with Gleeson volunteers and subcontractors kindly donating their time
and services.
