Why we work at CDS
Fergus Bailie, Chief Executive
Have you ever asked yourself why you do your job? How many times at a party has someone asked what you do or where? They rarely ask why. The answer to the ‘why we do it‘ question is what gets us out of bed in the morning. It drives us each day to surpass our customersâ€™ expectations.
Why do we come to work at CDS? Wages? Well, sure thatâ€™s a given. Professional pride and job satisfaction? Absolutely! But why here? Why CDS? What keeps us coming back every day, committing our time, effort, energy and emotion? Well, hereâ€™s the why for me. Itâ€™s because of our talented teams and the services they provide on projects that matter.
The work we do with our clients saves peopleâ€™s lives. It changes peopleâ€™s lives. It helps make our country a safer place to live. It helps foster kids find homes. It keeps soldiers in the front line safe. It gets people to their jobs on time, keeps cities moving. It inspires change in our society.
Career opportunities at CDS…
Ebola crisis in Sierra Leone? We are helping the UK’s efforts to fight the spread of this deadly virus. Any time thereâ€™s an emergency in the UK which requires a coordinated emergency response? Weâ€™re involved. Reduce crime in London, Essex, Northamptonshire, Kent? Check. Soldiers safeguarding British interests all over the world? Weâ€™re supporting them. Barely a day goes past that we aren’t involved in the stories that make the headlines.
Our team members are an integral part of the UKâ€™s infrastructure. They save and improve peopleâ€™s lives, every day. You may not see them on the news but theyâ€™re there, behind the scenes, making the things happen that we all count on.
For me, thatâ€™s why.
