Why work for Astra?


We work hard to create an environment that brings out the best in our people. We believe in training and investing in employees who prove they can make a real contribution to the continued growth and success of the company.

There are real opportunities for career development within all roles for ambitious and driven individuals from all backgrounds. Through on-the-job learning, we’ll make sure you’re stretching yourself that little bit further every day. While our broad-ranging training and development programmes will give you the skills to take on evermore challenging roles.

Customer Service Opportunities

If you enjoy interacting with different people every day either face to face, over the phone or on email then a career within the hire department could be the perfect match for you. Our Hire Controllers and Key Account Co-ordinators are the first point of contact for our customers. Through the in house Astra Academy Training programme our hire personnel quickly become Product Specialists and can develop their skills further in to Depot and Logistics management.

Engineering and Driving Opportunities

You don’t have to be a fully qualified engineer or plant fitter to start a career in our servicing, delivery and fitting department. If you are mechanically minded and have a willingness to learn then the opportunities are here for you to expand your skills through extensive and bespoke training with the Astra Academy. We work closely with manufacturers to offer comprehensive training on maintaining and servicing our full range of attachments. In addition we have a permanent Technical Training Manager who ensures all employees meet a minimum company standard.

Other Opportunities

As a growing UK company opportunities to fill roles in Marketing, Project Management, Logistics, Transport Management, Administration and Analytics. Where possible we will always prefer to recruit internally but when we have opportunities that need filling we look for ambitious people with varied skills sets who can bring something extra to the company. Education is important but we also recognise those with years of relevant industry experience who can add real value to our company.
