MACL puts its people front and centre. Every single one plays a vital part in our business’ ethos of ‘Building Value Together’.
We directly and indirectly employ around 450 people, and many of the workforce have been with the business since we started in 1987.
This incredible record of staff retention is one of the best in the industry and is testament to the fact that we treat all staff with respect, integrity, and support.
This is demonstrated in numerous ways.
We reward all our workers, across all skill sets and pay-grades, with competitive salaries and numerous incentives, including in-job training, free high-quality workwear and subsidised on-site catering.
We celebrate success across all pay grades through the Staff News section of our external magazine The Hard Hat and in our regular e-bulletin that is sent to all employees and external contractors, subcontractors, suppliers and housebuilding partners.
We also support staff through mentorship schemes, a robust Health and Safety policy and have designated mental health first aiders across the business.
For newcomers to the sector, we offer an industry-recognised apprenticeship scheme and many post-graduate opportunities.
We also provide volunteering opportunities for disadvantaged communities through the charity Groundwork and work alongside schools and colleges to promote construction skills.

Jason Frost is an A1 Groundworker that has worked for Anderson for eight years.
“Anderson is a family – in so many senses of the word. Most of the team I work with have followed me from site to site, so we have a long-standing rapport. But my own flesh and blood has also chosen to follow me into this industry too – which speaks volumes.”
