Market-leading sash window manufacturer Victorian Sliders welcomed potential new employees as part of a major recruitment event at its Ammanford headquarters.
Even after a bumper 2020, business shows no sign of slowing for the South Wales firm, which has recently implemented a second shift to keep up with demand.
Now, the company has hired over seventy new staff to help expand its production, with potential for many more new roles later in the year.
Held in a COVID-safe marquee on the main Victorian Sliders site, the three-day recruitment drive attracted talented candidates from around the region, as Marketing Manager Geoff Bishop explains.
“While we were always cautiously optimistic about what 2021 would bring, after the incredible success we saw in 2020, we definitely expected the market to have slowed somewhat by this point in the year.
“In fact, we’re continuing to see enormous demand, and are forging ahead with some very ambitious plans for expansion throughout 2021 and beyond.
“Making even more quality sash windows means we need even more talented staff – and at our recruitment weekend, we were extremely impressed with the quality of the candidates who put themselves forward.
“As a result, we’ll be inducting a large number of new starters in the weeks ahead, and look forward to creating dozens more jobs before the end of the year.
“In my 15 years in the window industry, the last twelve months has been the busiest period I’ve experienced by far, and I predict the 2020s will go on to be an extremely successful decade for UK fenestration.”
