A highly-valued voice for our members
We're intensely proud of our status as the leading trade organisation for the UK transport industry.
Not only does that make us a highly valued and respected voice for our members, who are at the heart of everything we do, but it also means that our opinion is regularly sought by everyone from local authorities to British MPs and the EU.
One team spirit
It's our people who underpin our successes, perpetuate our unique culture and ensure that we continue to be the leading voice for freight transport. They're totally dedicated to what they do, and they work together to achieve it. Perhaps that’s why there's such a strong team spirit throughout the organisation.
Open door policy
We realised a long time ago that strict hierarchies weren't the way to succeed. Working here, you'll find an approachable senior management team that actively takes an interest in what you have to say, and gives your ideas the consideration they deserve.
It's an open-door policy that goes all the way to the top - every employee has direct access to the Chief Executive.
Rise through the ranks
What's more, impress us and you'll have the chance to rise through the ranks yourself. We like to focus on individual success as much as teamwork, with career development another strong element of our culture.
So, if we see you as a potential leader in the future, we'll give you every opportunity to show us what you're capable of.
Internal communications ensure clear, consistent messages are shared with all staff to easily inform, include, and engage. Departmental communications champions contribute to Inside FTA (a weekly newsletter) and Yammer (a business social media platform which is only accessed by FTA staff). We also bring together departments that work in different locations through both face-to-face meetings and online Skype meetings.
