Our People

At Kori Construction, we firmly believe our people are our greatest asset. Without their hard work, commitment, ideas and passion, we wouldn’t be able to deliver the exceptional buildings we’re known for. But it doesn’t stop with our internal teams. We extend this value to our partners, suppliers, and other stakeholders to ensure every project we deliver is a collaborative effort that harnesses everyone’s input.

Ensuring that we cultivate an environment where our people can thrive is important to Kori, we support and invest significantly in the well-being of our workforce by providing a digital ‘Smart Health’ service, tailored mental health support, and health checks to manage employees’ health and lifestyle.

Kori is an Equal Opportunities employer. We are committed to promoting equality, diversity and inclusion, and to embedding it into everything we do. We operate inclusive workplaces where everyone feels valued and respected because of their differences; a place where every team member can be the whole and best version of themselves, so they can reach their own potential and help us to achieve our goals.

As a growing business we are always on the lookout for bright, talented people. Please get in touch at:
