Thanks to our established relationship with TIGERS it is with great pleasure that after 8 excellent weeks of work experience we are able to offer Drew a full time Joinery Apprenticeship here at TJL. Drew was introduced to TJL through TIGERS - a Scottish Training Provider who specialise in preparing young people aged 16-24 for entry into industries such as construction.
From the outset Drew had shown great promise and spent time soaking up all the information he could from the team, creating a great impression with our Workshop Manager Ross MacLeod - “We are delighted to welcome Drew on board, and know he will be a brilliant asset to the team. This is the start of the journey for him, and with TJL, he has a bright future ahead. Once again, I would like to thank Derek and the team at TIGERS for the part they have played.”
Drew has been extremely well supported throughout his work experience by Ross our Workshop Manager, Michael Hillman our Manufacturing Manager, Derek Johnstone from TIGERS and all of the TJL team in the factory. This support system and hands on mentoring will continue as Drew begins his apprenticeship and continues to develop his skillset. Well done Drew!
Our TJL Marketing Team attended an event at the Construction Scotland Innovation Centre hosted by the Association of Women in Property and British Council for Offices which involved an energising and engaging introduction from their Business Relationship Manager followed by a full tour of the 35, 000 sq. ft innovation factory.
Next to highlight their motivators are Chris Thomson from our Buying Department, Paul Watt one of our Polishers in the factory and Michael Hillman our Manufacturing Manager.
We also have Scott Keenan, Head of Estimating who is pictured with Billy Hynes former Estimating and Manufacturing Director who has clearly left a positive lasting impression and Zoe Plenderleith, our Marketing Manager pictured with Graham Kelly, Marketing Director
