Learning and Development

  • The Perfect Start

    Whichever part of the Compass family you join, we’ll welcome you to a great team, a great place to work and a great environment to flourish. Your learning journey in your first 12 weeks will be mapped out for you, ensuring you are fully supported, can access the right information and complete the right learning. It’s all about us helping you to be the best you can be.

    Your first few weeks of learning is tailored to your job role and you won’t have to complete everything at once. You’ll gain access to specific health and safety training, learn about Compass culture, and complete job specific learning – all at a pace that works for you.

    If you’re a business manager or join us in one of our central and support functions (like HR, IT or Finance) you’ll also attend one of our classroom inductions where you’ll learn more about the business and meet one of our fantastic team of trainers.

    From there your development is in your hands. There are many exciting opportunities with Compass Group. It will be down to you to make the most of them.

  • Compass DNA

    The Compass core values are: integrity, passion, teamwork, responsibility and a can-do attitude.

    These values are reflected in our DNA, which represents how we all work together in order to support our future success and continued growth. We expect everyone to model our Compass DNA in their roles. Our DNA explains our expectations of you, your career path and learning journey. It helps us to give you the learning you need at just the right time.

  • Our approach to your development

    With many people working across Compass Group UK & Ireland in different roles, there’s a lot of learning and development going on. As a fast-paced, people focused business, expect your training to be a mix of informal on the job learning, coaching from your line manager and formal learning. However experienced you are, we’ll help you develop your skills and realise your full potential.

    Learning and development across Compass is varied and exciting. Not only will it help you in your day to day job, it’ll also help you to progress. Whether you’re looking at a promotion or broadening your experiences, our available learning and development will get you on the right path. Fancy trying your hand at something different? There’s plenty of opportunity for you to see how other parts of the business work and to get involved if you feel like it’s for you. Would you like to see your career progressing? Once you’ve demonstrated great skills and behaviour in your current role, you’ll be supported to progress to the next level of your career.

    Most importantly, learning is not a one off event; we’re all continuously learning in everything we do – from conversations, reading information and shadowing colleagues to completing online learning and attending workshops – so we’ll encourage you to take every opportunity and make the most of it.
