Meet our teams

Account Managers

Our account management team is over 400-strong and covers the length and breadth of the UK and Ireland, ensuring you receive dedicated support to look after your every need.

Support team

People are at the heart of our business and we make sure that our dedicated account managers receive all the support they need to provide our customers with expert advice, assistance and solutions.

Local care

It doesn’t often happen, but if you do have an issue with your account, we know you’d rather talk with someone that understands you and your business. That’s why we have three local customer care hubs in our head office in Telford, Airdrie and Dublin.

Local drivers

It’s always nice to see a familiar face. That’s why we employ our own local delivery drivers who work their own individual routes so your parcel will always be delivered by the same driver. All of our drivers are DBS checked and fully qualified.

mental health and wellbeing

1 in 4 adults will suffer from a mental health disorder in any given year. Through Lyreco Goodness, we want to look after our people and support them with any challenges they may have.

How we’re doing

In 2020 Lyreco was named Best Employer for Mental Wellbeing at the Boss Awards.
This was achieved by the ongoing work of many Lyreco employees and our mental health initiatives We explore this ongoing work below:

Mental health & wellbeing

Lyreco Goodness means always doing the right thing, so caring for the mental health and wellbeing of people are key parts of our culture and CSR strategy.

  • Mental health awareness training for all levels of management
  • The introduction and training of mental health first aiders

  • Ongoing dissemination of educational materials covering physical, mental, financial, and nutritional wellbeing
  • Employee wellness activities such as monthly wellness walks and mindfulness sessions

Equality & Diversity

Respect is one of our four core values (alongside excellence, agility and passion). We want to ensure that every one of our 10,000 employees operating in 25 countries treats others, and is treated, with respect.  

We also believe that diversity enriches our working environment and experiences, and supports our performance.

As such, employment decisions, promotions and training programmes are only on qualifications, ability, work experience and work quality. No decisions are made on the basis of gender, age, position, disability, race, colour, social class, marital status, sexual orientation, religious belief, culture or nation of origins and political views.
