PD&MS Group is delighted to announce we’ve been registered as a Disability Confident Committed Employer, achieving level 1 status. 

As part of our pledge to become a more inclusive employer, we are committed to creating and developing opportunities for underrepresented groups. 


Simon Darwin, Head of Resourcing, commented: 

I’m thrilled that we’ve been registered as part of the UK government’s Disability Confident scheme. Diversity, equity and inclusion is of great importance to the PD&MS Group and committing to supporting those with disabilities is something we’re incredibly passionate and proud to be embarking upon. This is the first step for us in our Disability Confident journey and our aim is to provide opportunities, and support, within our Group, for those with disabilities while allowing us to increase and expand our skilled talent pool, further developing our business strategies and execution.

Our purpose and strategy are interlinked with our chosen Sustainable Development Goals (SDG), both primary and complementary. Our registration, and subsequent commitment, as a Disability Confident employer aligns with SDG Goal 10; reduced inequalities and our aim is to empower and promote the social, economic and political inclusion of all.

As we look to continue to invest in and develop our multiskilled workforce, undertaking our level 1 commitments and working towards level 3 is key to strengthening our business. I’m excited to embark on our Disability Confident journey, and to actively create opportunities for those with disability in our organisation.

Disability Confident is a UK government scheme that helps employers to recruit and retrain great people while challenging attitudes and increasing awareness of disability.  The scheme also helps to identify employers who are committed to inclusion and diversity in the workplace. 

PD&MS was formed in 2002 and has grown from a specialist engineering service company working in the oil and gas sector, to an international engineering solutions provider operating across the broader energy industry.  PD&MS Group incorporates both Synergie Environ Ltd and Optimus Plus (Aberdeen) Ltd.
