Cambridge Vacuum Engineering certified as ‘Great Place To Work’ The Cambridge Vacuum Engineering team

Cambridge Vacuum Engineering (CVE), the electron beam and laser in vacuum welding specialists, has officially been certified as a ‘Great Place To Work’. The prestigious accreditation solidifies CVE‘s position as an exceptional employer within the engineering sector, as well as a leading global provider of power beam welding equipment.

For more than 60 years, CVE has been supplying innovative welding solutions to some of the biggest names in aerospace, automotive, defence, nuclear, and oil and gas — helping them solve major engineering challenges. Demand for the company’s welding know-how is ramping up as industries seek to lower their carbon footprint and speed up the manufacture of electric vehicle batteries, wind turbines and nuclear reactors.

CVE has gained Great Place To Work status following a comprehensive survey of its employees and the completion of a workplace questionnaire by its management team. Recognised worldwide, the Great Place To Work scheme is the only certification based entirely on what employees say about their workplace and is a benchmark for companies that provide an outstanding employee experience.

Bob Nicolson, managing director at CVE, said: “At CVE our employees get to work on some of the most important engineering projects in the world — but we actually offer much more than just that. Alongside continuous professional development opportunities, staff can take advantage of subsidised gym membership, free pilates classes and regular in-house wellbeing workshops on money management, reducing stress and improving sleep.

“We have our own five-a-side football team. We organise regular social outings including hikes in the countryside and theatre trips. All staff also get an annual health check and free flu jabs. We have known for a long time that we have created a special company where people like coming to work. Getting this rubber stamped by the team at Great Place To Work is excellent news — particularly as the decision was based on what our staff had to say.”

With Great Place To Work status, CVE is now ranked alongside other like-minded organisations worldwide, which are committed to creating a positive and supportive working environment that fosters employee engagement, innovation, teamwork and professional growth.

CVE is headquartered just outside Cambridge, UK and has regional offices in Beijing, China and Massachusetts, USA as well as a global network of agents.
