Working at Sigma

Home » Company » Working at Sigma

We’ve come a long way in the last 10 years and the way ahead looks even brighter. Ranked 20th in the Sunday Times International Track 200 awards 2019, we’ve been acknowledged as being one of Britain’s fastest growing private companies. But it’s our people that make us who we are, and we are proud to have some of the most experienced, knowledgeable, passionate and dedicated individuals within our industry, at every level in our business.

At Sigma, we need driven and ambitious “go-getters” who make things happen and really know their stuff. We are inclusive and approachable, creating an environment to help you deliver a great performance. Join our team of dedicated experts and help us to reach our goals.

 
Who We Are?

Our business is about transforming commercial spaces and we’ve been doing this successfully since 1994. Over the years, we’ve developed some great relationships with high profile companies such as Asda, Lidl, Primark, Footlocker and Sainsbury’s, who trust and value our expertise.

We recognise that each of our customers has significantly different requirements, with this in mind, we are continually re-evaluating the services we offer and reinvesting in our business and people to ensure we keep one step ahead of the competition.

We know we need to deliver results and sustainable business growth. Standing still is not an option.

We’re pretty unique too! Our complete “end to end” service is hard to find from any other provider. From design right through to installation – we offer an unrivalled, complete and professional service, collaborating with our clients to help bring their ideas to life. Our clients love this innovative approach and are reaping the rewards of working with Sigma as a single provider of combined services, tailored to their needs.

Here are some of the exciting projects we’ve been involved in
