Our Community

As a business with over 100 employees, we have a responsibility to support the local community. Our community engagement focuses on three key areas - youth, charity and employment.

Supporting Local Youth Clubs

Grant UK’s head offices have always been based in Wiltshire and over the years, we have sponsored local sports clubs and activities for the younger members of the community. For example, in 2020, we sponsored one of the teams at Devizes Town Youth Football Club, an organisation which is run by volunteers who provide football to boys and girls between the ages of 3 years up to 18 years. More recently, Grant UK has sponsored Melksham RFC’s mini and junior section rugby teams, another local grassroots sports club which is supporting the development of young players and home-grown talent.

Providing financial support to organisations that are helping the next generation is something that Grant UK is proud to do. For further updates and announcements, please follow our News page.

Charitable Support

Another way that we support the local community is by fundraising for charities which are nominated and selected by employees. The Wiltshire Air Ambulance is our current chosen charity who we started to support in 2019. To date, Grant UK has donated £35,000 to this local charity and we are continuing to support the Wiltshire Air Ambulance throughout 2022 as well.

Wiltshire Air Ambulance is a local charity based in Melksham, whose essential work and service could be needed by any one of us at some point in our lives. Grant UK’s employees are central to our fundraising activities which is why we feel it is important for them to be part of the selection process. Through a range of virtual events and face to face fundraisers, the Grant Team have reached wonderful fundraising totals over the years – to read more, please follow the links below:

Graduate Trainee Scheme

In 2018, Grant UK launched a Trainee Initiative Programme which was open to local students and graduates. Two trainee positions were available which were advertised locally, with the successful candidates being given the opportunity to gain experience in all departments to develop a broad, well grounded understanding of the Company and its operations.

One of these trainees was Charles Gillman-Couch, a graduate engineer who soon found his niche in the Training Department. Working closely with our Training Manager, Charles was able to gain an insight into the processes that bring a product to market, principally during the early R&D phases. With his CAD experience and engineering degree, Charles completed his year on the Trainee Programme and was appointed the position of Technical Writer – today, Charles is involved in producing schematic drawings and the copy content used in Grant product manuals.
