The Keys to The World's Best Office

The World’s Best Office doesn’t have fluorescent lights, creaky furniture and ringing telephones.

Instead, there are wide open spaces, fresh air, and birdsong.

Everything we do is based on innovative thinking, integrity and pride in our work, and cooperation: we Do it First, Do it Right, and Do It Together. We call that the Delta Angle, and it’s how we go above and beyond for our staff, our customers, and our environment.

Delta cares. And that’s why we consider ourselves The World’s Best Office.

APPRENTICESHIPS

Not everyone is cut out for office work. If you like the idea of “being on the tools” then a trade’s life might be the one for you.

Delta is a great place to be an apprentice. We are big enough to offer excellent training opportunities with support from expert tradespeople; and small enough that your work is always varying. At Delta apprentices do the work, they don’t just get stuck with the cleaning-up at the end.
