Helping you get the job done… Right
Operations Manager, Walsall
I started with the Haldane Group in 2018 as the role of Operations Manager at the Walsall branch. Under my remit is the Yard, Transport, the Mill and the Treatment Plant. The most rewarding part of my employment to date was being involved in the installation of a new Treatment Plant in June 2019. This project took 8 months to complete and has been a very successful addition to our site. My favourite part of the job is that I am working with different people and tackling new challenges every day, as no two days are the same. Most of all I love being in the Timber Trade.
Senior Accounts Administrator, Salford
Being a member of GE Robinson’s team has provided me with great opportunities to attain and develop new skills and knowledge. Over the years I’ve had the chance to work and prove myself in different roles within the organisation. The company has actively contributed to my accountancy qualifications goals.
Health and Safety Manager, Salford
GER has given me the chance to ‘put into practice’ the health & safety skills I had taught in a classroom for a number of years, as well as the opportunity to learn some new ones. As my role involves visiting all branches, I particularly enjoy imparting this knowledge as I strive to make the working environment as safe as possible.
Production Manager, Salford
I’ve been a part of GE Robinson/Haldane Fisher for 13 years now. I started out as a labourer in our production department. This was meant to be only a temporary job, however, very quickly I was provided with the opportunities to develop myself and gradually progress further. I have participated in a number of training courses over the years (the very latest one was BMF Diploma in Merchanting) which contributed eventually to taking my current position. Being a member of GE Robinson’s/Haldane Fisher’s team has been a great experience for me.
