Welcome from Claire Tobijanski, Group HR Director
At Survitec, we recognise that to be the best at what we do, we need the best people. My team and I strive to make Survitec the best possible place to work. This means attracting the best talent; providing training and development opportunities so colleagues can grow in their careers with us; rewarding our people for going the extra mile and living our values; and building an inclusive culture - where everyone thrives and feels empowered to be their best self.
I joined Survitec over seven years ago as the HR Manager for our Birkenhead site and during my time with the organisation, I have had the pleasure to work in a variety of different roles. The very best thing about my job is the people that I work with. Every day our people come to work, whether in that’s in HR, Finance, Manufacturing, Engineering or Sales, motivated by the same purpose; we all play a part in protecting the lives of our customers.
I want everyone to have a long-lasting and fulfilling career with Survitec and my role is to ensure that every single person is given the opportunity to learn, develop, progress, be recognised and feel proud to work here. Nothing gives me more pleasure than when I speak to colleagues who have joined Survitec when they first left school and 50 years later are still delighted to work here.
But don’t just take my word for it . . .
Survitec, then known as RFD, was founded by Reginald Foster Dagnall in 1920 in a garden shed. Little did he know the legacy he was about to create. RFD was fundamental in creating solutions such as the world’s first inflatable liferaft and the world’s first marine evacuation system. For the past 100 years, our people have been at the forefront of delivering innovative solutions that keep our customers safe. Join us and be part of the Survitec legacy.
