Investing in our people is a priority – we’ve developed a dedicated team, many of whom have been with us since the early days. Alongside the Directors, our line-up includes Project Managers, Quantity Surveyors, Procurement and Accounts teams, a Human Resources and Marketing Manager, as well as admin and on-site employees. And we can call upon the expertise of our trusted sub-contractors and a host of specialist agency workers for specific projects.

Work hard, play hard

The Syntec team love nothing better than outdoors fun and games. Whether taking part in Tough Mudder, games of Tag Rugby, running half marathons, impromptu rounders matches, Wednesday night football – there’s always something sporty going on. And Finance Director Pat (who only runs when he hears a packet of biscuits being opened) is there with his camera to capture the action.

Join us for lunch or Friday night drinks

We regularly make time for informal lunchtime gatherings at the office, where Operations Director Tiernan swaps his hard hat and high-vis for chef’s whites and cooks lunch for everyone. And most Fridays find the team getting together for a drink or two.
