Fighting climate change

Levett Consultancy is a proud member of the UK Government SME Climate hub where we are part of the business community aiming to halve carbon emissions by 2030 and contribute to net zero by 2050. As a cloud technology focused business, reducing carbon emissions is built into all of our solutions to maximise a green future i.e. transitioning clients from inefficient on-premises server hardware to efficient Cloud Platforms, implementing hybrid working allowing staff to work from home and have video meetings with clients to cut down on carbon emissions caused by travel.
Covid-19 recovery

Covid-19 recovery

Levett Consultancy throughout the Pandemic was one of the approved Department for Education (DfE) suppliers tasked with deploying Digital Learning Platforms to England schools to ensure learning could continue. Since May 2020 Levett Consultancy has helped over 40+ schools, academies and Multi-Academy Trust transition to the DfE approved Digital Learning Platforms. By being part of this project we have been able to invest in our local communities by creating more job opportunities and skilling frontline workers to become confident in using cloud technologies to enable them to deliver their services from any location.
Tackling economic inequality

Tackling economic inequality

At Levett Consultancy we take our community social responsibility very seriously. We aim to conduct business in a way that is completely ethical. This means we take into account the social, economic and environmental impact of everything we do. Where possible we predominantly use local uk suppliers to support our business needs. We also have established a community and social responsibility program that enables us to give back to the local communities across the UK that have helped our business grow. We provide employment opportunities for those who are often furthest from employment and as an active member of the Defence Employer Recognition Scheme (ERS), we have been awarded the Silver Armed Services Covenant award by demonstrating our support to defence and the armed forces community and our aligned values with the Armed Forces Covenant. We work with local schools and Academy Trusts to provide work experience opportunities for year 10 and 11 students who are interested in a technology career. We also invest in the National Apprenticeship scheme whereby we provide opportunities for young adults to gain the necessary skills to forge a career within the IT industry. At the end of an apprenticeship we also provide a path for apprentices to work within the company on a permanent basis.
Equal opportunity

Equal opportunity

Levett Consultancy positively encourages diversity and inclusion at all levels within the organisation, and we are proud to have provided many career development opportunities to past, present and future employees. We are proud members of the Disability Confident scheme to support disabled people in the workplace helping them achieve their work and life goals. As part of our commitment to the Armed Services we provide opportunities for injured service personnel to gain work experience within the IT industry via the Career Transition Partnership (CTP) who help service personnel and their families transition from service life to civilian life. We are also recognised as a Living Wage employer since the scheme was established, and invest in local staff and pay wages which meet everyday needs - like the weekly shop, or a surprise trip to the dentist. We are committed to helping our staff develop and progress their career, to achieve this all staff have individual continuing professional development plans based on the objectives they have set for themselves within their annual performance review. This approach ensures the employee has full control of their career development whilst being guided by experienced mentors to ensure they maximise their potential and achieve their goals. Our ethos is also passed on to our supply chain who before we formally engage with, regardless of size, we will check that their ethos align to our ethos, this includes meeting and complying with modern slavery laws and standards.
Wellbeing

Wellbeing

Welfare of our employees is a top priority and goes together with our regard to society impact. All Levett Consultancy employees have access to private health care and 1:1 counselling support 24/7 during their employment. An employee work life balance is very important to Levett Consultancy, which is why all staff work 35 hours per week and have access to flexible working when needed. We have also adopted hybrid work environments to allow staff to work from home when required. This approach allows our staff to be more productive whilst allowing the company to reduce its carbon footprint. We take a community approach to delivery of our services and products, where we have set up a customer advisory board made up of our local community of customers. The customer advisory board sits directly with our executive team, whereby any solutions or services we are looking to provide are first ratified by this board to ensure there is a positive impact on our customers and local communities.
