There are plenty of reasons why working for Foley's is a great idea.  We've tried to list as many as we can below:

  • are a progressive and innovative company that is constantly exploring opportunities for growth
  • are 100% owned by staff and are continually providing opportunities for staff who wish to progress their career
  • operate under a set of core values, that we really believe in
  • organise and pay for monthly events and also have an active social club who organise regular events for staff. Our social activities are fun, competitive, build camaraderie and make for good conversation at ‘smoko time’
  • pay all course costs for apprentices employed by us
  • A thorough induction process that makes new staff feel welcome and supported
  • A varied and interesting range of work
  • A career path that suits you.  Being a large firm there are plenty of opportunities for staff that wish to progress into other areas of the business.
  • Competitive pay rates
  • A full-funded opportunity every year for a staff member to attend Outward Bound

Foley Plumbers have a tertiary accreditation for ACC ensuring we provide a safe working environment for our employees, both on and off the premises. We also hold regular health and safety training sessions.

At the end of 2016 we asked all our employees what they thought about the company and working for us.  Here is a summary of the results:

  • What do our staff enjoy most?  The people, the work, their team, the working conditions, our company reputation, our culture and values, opportunities and health, safety and wellbeing.
  • 89% of our staff would recommend Foley's as a good place to work
  • 93% agreed that being family-oriented is an important value
  • 93% agreed that we work hard to provide a safe working environment

"We believe that we are only as good as our employees and to keep good employees you need to pay well, give them feedback, provide a safe working environment and have fun."  Craig Foley, Director.
