One of Britain’s leading stone manufacturing businesses, J. Rotherham, is looking to recruit over 30 new staff and apprentices in East Yorkshire, representing a 15% increase on their current employee base. The recruitment push is the result of an on-going period of sales growth which the company has been enjoying over the last 5 years.
Opportunities at J. Rotherham include operative, team leadership and supervising roles including vacancies in their production, operations, IT and Finance departments. The company is also offering multiple apprenticeship placements, keen to develop the next generation of skilled craftsmen and support personnel.
The new roles are part of an £800k investment in jobs, staff training and development and office upgrades. This is in addition to the developments occurring across J. Rotherham’s 17 acre state-of-the-art manufacturing facility that is into the 3rd year of a £4.5m investment programme.
“Despite Brexit uncertainty, it’s critical for our future success to take a long term view on recruitment, training and employee development. We passionately believe British manufacturing can be an exciting, challenging and rewarding career and look forward to welcoming more talented individuals join us on our journey of building a world-class organisation.” Says Matt Rotherham, Managing Director.
