Advice for new starters

Here's what the team have to say about their experience from working at the Pilot Group.

Hi there, I’d like to welcome you to the Pilot Group.

I’m Simone Peppi, Co- Founder and COO of the pilot group
We are very much looking forward to you joining our business and enhancing our fantastic team all of whom engaged in ensuring the success of the Pilot Group and helping to achieve our goal of a carbon neutral future.

Interestingly, our business started back in 1992 and whilst that may seem a long time ago (for some of you!) the driving force for me personally has always been to ensure the growth of the people and the business. If both are aligned, we’ll be a successful team!
We created the Pilot Group to bring together multiple businesses and brands to ensure the vision for the Group was clear – to ensure the world we live in becomes a safer and more sustainable environment with the ultimate aim of supporting the global goal of carbon neutrality. We are focused on providing our customers with leading edge, innovative technology to achieve these aims.

What does good look like as an employee – in summary, it’s recognizing the impact each and every person in our company can make, as an individual and as a team. Taking that vision and using their driving force, their conviction and their tenacity to make things happen.

My advice to any new starter is as follows –

We have employed you because you are YOU!

We believe you will achieve great things both personally in our business and professionally too. Communication is probably THE most important tool to help us with that goal.

Remind yourself every day of the passion that drove you to this point , to keep recreating the vision and make it happen together.

Onwards and upwards!
