Striving to be a valued, supportive and integral part of our communities

Portakabin strives to be a valued, supportive and integral part of the communities in which it operates. It achieves this by contributing to local projects and events, and building links with charities, businesses and schools.

Support for good causes
Our colleagues generously give their time and money to good causes, supporting everything from national charity events to local causes and voluntary organisations as well as donating through our Payroll Giving scheme. 

Sharing knowledge and expertise
Local schools and colleges benefit from the experience and knowledge of our colleagues. Volunteers from our offices and factories regularly participate in careers fairs, give school talks, act as mentors on university programmes, work as school governors and accompany school trips. Our production sites frequently host school party tours, providing a first-hand introduction to our manufacturing processes.

All areas of the business welcome work experience students from local schools, giving young people an insight into a range of occupations and helping to shape their perceptions of the world of work.

Good neighbours
Wherever we work, we aim to be considerate and sensitive neighbours. That means we respond quickly to any requests, complaints or enquiries from people living or working nearby. This is a long-standing policy and we have only ever received a handful of comments from our neighbours.
