3. What gets you out of bed in a morning?
The ability to make a difference and be part of the rapid curve of growth within these businesses is a great reason to get out of bed in a morning! Working with a group of inspiring Directors, alongside a strong peer network of managers within the business, delivers a strong foundation of support, teamwork and the opportunity to learn and grow.
Additionally, there is a large focus on company culture, and employee appreciation, with initiatives such as Tasty Tuesday once a month, where the company buys everyone lunch. There are some exciting things ahead in the pipeline for the business, with a new Securiclad factory launched in South Wales and a continuous pipeline of product development which is going to fundamentally allow growth and diversification across the two businesses.
