03.10.2016 - Instant Employment for Perfect Ten
It was certainly a worthwhile visit for 10 lucky candidates who managed to secure instant employment last week, having attended the first ever ‘Career Open Day’ at Mick George Ltd, as the construction business opened its doors to the public for 13 hours.
In excess of 150 interested parties attended the event, with many of which shortlisted for other vacancies that the company holds.
The day provided prospective employees the opportunity to get a real insight to exactly what the organisation is about, being able to witness first hand, what a working day entails within the office environment.
Throughout the day, office tours were provided as well as workshops, where visitors were invited to sit alongside current employees to listen in and watch over their daily tasks, as well as try their hand at the job themselves. Departmental Managers were at hand to chat through any discussion points or queries.
A whole variety of vacancies right across the board were showcased, from the standard departmental functions which include Marketing, Finance, Customer Services, Sales and many others, to those that are more bespoke to the Transport, Waste Management and Construction industries, such as plant operators, drivers, site managers and workshop technicians.
Having consistently experienced significant expansion over recent times, adding in excess of 200 employees to its total headcount, which now surpasses 850, Mick George Ltd are not resting on their laurels in pursuit of further success.
Jon Stump, Finance Director at Mick George Ltd commented: ‘’Over recent times the business has achieved magnificent financial results and we recognise that our success is a result of the fantastic team we have built across all departments.
