A DONCASTER firm that operates worldwide has appointed four trainee managers in the last few weeks - all of them with military experience.
RecyCoal, which specialises in the recovery of waste coal sites throughout the UK, will train the latest recruits at its Langton site on the Nottinghamshire/Derbyshire border.
Sales and marketing manager David Stafford commented: “Because of the increase in demand for our service and coupled with our company’s strategic overseas expansion plan, we had a requirement for further staff at a managerial level.
“Our four new members will complete a six month training programme before being deployed anywhere in a number of countries that we will be operating in.”
The newcomers include David Sparrow, who will join the company in the New Year, and Pat Nulty as trainee site managers, Pat has previously 35 years Army experience. He has since worked with Corum Logistics and TH White.
Mark Bond and Anthony Haywood have joined RecyCoal as trainee supervisors, both were part of the Royal Artillery and had toured Iraq and Afghanistan. With skills in fork truck engineering and communications, including the switchover from analogue to digital systems, the recruits have the expertise to deliver the requirements of the job to ensure RecyCoal continues to forge ahead with a sustainable future for the use of previously mined sites.
David continued: “It just so happened that the best candidates were ex-armed forces personnel, their skills in working in challenging conditions and as part of a team perfectly matched the requirements for these demanding managerial roles.”
