Being a friendly, supportive company, we enjoy a low turnover of staff, especially within our Distribution Centre and Call Centre, where absenteeism and turnover rates across many other businesses are notoriously high.

Very much like a family, we promote openness, honesty and teamwork. Employees enjoy working at Flowtechnology because they feel secure, supported and empowered to think creatively. This is the reason why we can offer so many tailored support solutions.

Here are some of the benefits of joining our family:

  • Genuine family feel – friendly, supportive team environment.
  • Excellent location in Lancashire - within a 30 mile radius of Manchester, Liverpool and Preston.
  • 22 days holiday per annum, rising to a maximum of 27 days.
