BMT brings leading-​edge con­sul­tancy, engi­neer­ing, main­te­nance, fore­cast­ing, sur­vey­ing and plan­ning exper­tise to clients in the road, rail, water, inter­modal and air­borne trans­port sec­tors.

This varies by loca­tion but can include pen­sion scheme, 401K plan, income pro­tec­tion insur­ance and a profit-​sharing scheme within each indi­vid­ual oper­at­ing com­pany. Since 1998 BMT has dis­trib­uted a total of £42.8m to its mem­bers of staff. To ensure BMT retains its inde­pen­dence and to remain totally un-​biased an Employee Ben­e­fit Trust was set up as a vehi­cle to reward con­tin­u­ing indi­vid­ual com­mit­ment and ded­i­ca­tion. All employ­ees with three years’ BMT ser­vice not only qual­ify for their company’s indi­vid­ual profit-​share, but also for the over­all BMT profit-​share, aris­ing from the prof­its of BMT as a whole.
