The UW story
From a pub in Henley back in ‘96, to an award-winning, FTSE 250 business – we’ve come a long way.
For the last 20 years, we’ve been helping people spend more time doing the things that really matter by taking care of the fiddly bits – like utilities. We take pride in delivering a product that is simple yet powerful, all with a personal touch.
We’ve been on quite the journey. And it’s only just begun.
Keeping it human
We’re a rapidly growing business but one thing that’s never changed is our commitment to always keep things human. We call it ‘getting big by acting small’ and here's what it means...
One neighbourhood, one culture.
We like to think of UW as one vibrant neighbourhood, filled with Partners, customers and employees.
Every single person matters at UW. We don’t treat people as numbers. We embrace different perspectives, life experiences, and personalities, creating an inclusive environment where people can have fun and grow. With over 1500 employees spread across the UK, the UW family has grown into a pretty dynamic neighbourhood.
Our company was born out of conversations between people and our culture today reflects that. Life at UW is like one big conversation where everyone can be heard. No egos, no ivory towers, just lots of individuals valued for their contribution, banding together to form one tight-knit neighbourhood.
What matters to us
We like humans. We care about who we work with and have built an awesome UW community, filled with passionate, innovative people.
We know things aren’t always perfect and embrace that. We keep things real, encourage robust discussions, and challenge - with respect.
Our green initiatives
We’re passionate about doing our bit for the planet. Through our environmental work we’re helping to power a greener, more sustainable future.
Diversity and inclusion
We’re a unique bunch of people here at UW – and that’s just how we like it. We embrace different perspectives, experiences, and personalities, creating an inclusive environment where people feel they can belong.
The UW Foundation
We're working with The Charities Trust to focus on the three things that our people are most passionate about: the environment, ocean pollution, and local communities.
What's in it for you
Life at UW
Someone’s work and social life rarely interconnect. However, at the Utility Warehouse, we pride ourselves on making sure our staff is given ample opportunities to let their hair down. These are some of the many activities we implore the UW community to get involved in.
Join the UW team
We’re a rapidly growing business but one thing that’s never changed is our commitment to always keep things human. We call it ‘getting big by acting small’. Our goal is to double in size in the next five years – all organically. It’s punchy and the road ahead might be a bit bumpy, but that’s what excites us. Easy is boring. If joining a business that’s been around for two decades but still has all the hunger of a startup is up your street, then you’ve come to the right place.
