What it’s really like to work at Walker Sime…

Our commitment to our employees goes beyond the ordinary. We believe in celebrating successes, supporting one another through challenges and fostering a workplace culture where everyone feels valued and empowered.

We don’t just say it, we live it. Here Machala Campbell, Business Improvement and Development Officer shares firsthand examples from the team about what it’s really like to work at Walker Sime. As well as some of the fab things we do for our team…


What sets Walker Sime apart is its commitment to allowing employees the autonomy to take personal responsibility for their roles and influence their day-to-day work. This level of trust empowers individuals to make decisions that impact their projects positively. The freedom to shape one’s own work experience contributes to a sense of ownership and pride in the outcomes, ultimately leading to a more fulfilling professional journey.


The heart of Walker Sime lies in the genuine care and support that employees receive from their colleagues and superiors. The nurturing nature of the company’s workforce creates a community where everyone looks out for each other. This atmosphere of camaraderie fosters collaboration, making the workplace a space where individuals can thrive both personally and professionally.

Thriving Under Pressure

This speaks volumes about the strength of the team and the supportive culture that propels them forward.


The positive culture and the abundance of career opportunities create an environment where employees can thrive. Job satisfaction is not just a goal; it’s a reality at Walker Sime, where individuals feel fulfilled in their roles and appreciated for their contributions.


This level of autonomy not only enhances job satisfaction but also contributes to the overall success of the organisation by leveraging each employee’s strengths to the fullest. This commitment to transparency ensures that everyone is on the same page, fostering an environment where employees can confidently navigate their responsibilities with a clear understanding of the broader picture.

And here are some examples of how Walker Sime shows it cares…

Making it Memorable

Our dedication to keeping employees engaged extends beyond the workplace. When Shoeb Munshi passed his NEC3 exam, we wanted to make the occasion memorable for him and his family. We arranged for them to enjoy a cinematic treat with a screening of Willy Wonka, complete with chocolates to sweeten the experience, all alcohol-free, of course. It’s these thoughtful gestures that make our workplace feel like a supportive community.

Celebrating Personal Achievements

When Natalie Charlesworth, Karen Stephenson, Tammy Harrison-Round, Chris Walker, Charlie Chu and Joe Lamb conquered the 3 Peaks challenge, we celebrated their achievement with bubbles and a gift bag filled with goodies to ease any post-adventure aches and pains. By supporting our team members beyond the office, we show that we care about their well-being and success, both personally and professionally.

Rewarding Dedication

By recognising and supporting our employees’ interests and aspirations, we believe we strengthen the bonds of our team. When Victoria Jordan played a significant role in winning new work for the company, we wanted to acknowledge her dedication in a meaningful way. Knowing her passion for fitness, we granted her the opportunity to fulfill a secret desire: an open water swim.

Taking Care of Our Own

During times of illness or adversity, our support for each other remains unwavering. When I faced health challenges, the Walker Sime family rallied around with thoughtful gestures. The team surprised me with a beautiful bouquet of fruit, creatively arranged to brighten my day and aid in my recovery. It’s moments like these that truly showcase the compassion and camaraderie that define our workplace culture.

At Walker Sime, we understand that it’s the little things that make a big difference. From celebrating achievements to offering support during difficult times, our commitment to our employees is at the heart of everything we do. Together, we create a workplace where everyone feels valued, supported, and empowered to thrive.
