Jobseekers Find Opportinities at Russells’ Recruitment Open Day
Paul Erskine shows visitors round Russell Roof Tiles
Jobseekers were given an exclusive behind the scenes tour of pioneering roof tile manufacturer, Russell Roof Tiles recently, when the award-winning employer hosted its first-ever Recruitment Open Day.
Russells, which was recently awarded Employer of the Year, was keen to highlight the number of vacancies, as a result of increased demand and growth at the firm.
The event was aimed at attracting the very best talent and visitors had the opportunity to meet the Russells’ team, find out more about the job roles available and have a tour of the site to experience how more than one million roofing tiles are made at the factory each day.
Russells’ Managing Director, Andrew Hayward said: “Our first-ever Recruitment Open Day was a brilliant success and I am glad that so many people attended and showed a strong interest in working with us.
“2016 was a milestone year for Russells. We achieved Employer of the Year award, opened a brand-new Research and Training Centre and launched the John Gibson Bursary. We are expecting this year to be just as exciting for us and as a result we’re looking for hard-working recruits who want to help continue supporting our strong growth.”
Russells employs a team of 180 across its two factories in Burton and one in near Lockerbie in Scotland. The company manufactures a range of concrete roof tiles and fittings for the pitched roofing market, used on residential and commercial projects across the UK.
