What our employees say about us

testimonial
Our Purpose

“I lead the warehouse management teams across both our sites. There’s a culture of support at YPO across all areas of the organisation to each other and our customers. I’m now in my 29th year as a YPO employee, I started work here in 1993 with a full head of hair. I’ve had numerous jobs in different industries before joining YPO as an agency worker back in 1993 and I can truly say that YPO is the best place that I have worked at.

The benefits that everyone receives whilst working are very good. YPO to me is the place where I’ve grown up and made many friends. It’s provided me job security and has given me the opportunity to progress and develop my career.”

- Ian Maw, Warehouse Manager

testimonial
Our Purpose

“I started YPO as an apprentice in 2018 and after a year and a half, I was fortunate enough to secure a role in the marketing team as a marketing and digital assistant. Being an apprentice allowed me to discover what area of the business I enjoyed the most, with endless opportunities to learn and develop my career.

The support I’ve received throughout my journey at YPO has been fantastic, everyone is treated equally, and hard work never goes unnoticed. I couldn’t have chosen a better place to start my career!”

- Amelia Wilks, Marketing & Digital Assistant
