Our strong values-based culture is a key part of looking after our people. Capral’s five core values of Safety First, Customer Success, Play Fair, Better Every Day and Own it form the basis of all aspects of our operations.

They can cope with unexpected and unpredictable situations. They are great leaders, trained to deliver their best and get the best out of others. These skills are in strong demand and transfer readily to our business”
