Staff Testimonials

Working at Freightliner

Portrait of Terri-Ann Westerman

Terri-Ann Westerman

Mechanical and Electrical Fitter, Freightliner

When I started in engineering it was a ‘man’s world’, but at Freightliner, I’m part of a diverse workforce which looks out for each other. Ultimately, I’m challenged every day and it’s the responsibility I’m given which keeps my role interesting. No matter the task, I feel safe and supported when I come to work.


We offer all employees a competitive salary, considerable career progression and the opportunity to join Freightliner’s final salary pension scheme which can guarantee income on retirement.

Join our team and we will support you to progress not only professionally, but personally too. Our dedicated Training and Development Team work tirelessly to bring opportunities for individual and team growth to our people, while our optimal paid leave policies ensure a proper work-life balance.

We consistently promote ways to maintain and improve our employees’ health and wellbeing, which is why we put the Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) in place. The EAP offers free, confidential, 24/7 support to G&W UK employees and their families. More than just counselling, this service provides 24hr assistance with services such as health or stress assessments, childcare support, fitness advice and even legal services such as will-writing.

We also offer a wide range of benefits intended to suit you and the needs of your family through our employee benefit scheme, Freightliner Life.

Freightliner Life offers travel insurance, retailer discounts, salary sacrifice technology and transport options, healthcare and dental packages and much more!
