introduced me to timber, but it has
also developed my skills in business and
Despite the fact that the timber industry
might not look "rock & roll", it not only
offers roles in production, buying and
sales but also careers in engineering,
IT, accounting and so much more. This
fabulous company and industry is just
waiting for big personalities who truly
care about serving customers and want to
have fun while they do it."
Or like Lynn.
"It's a real pleasure to say that I genuinely
love coming into work at Ridgeons. After
a first career in something completely
different from timber and building
supplies, I feel very lucky to have a fresh
challenge and to have been welcomed
into a new career at Ridgeons.
Ridgeons is a place where you feel valued
and 'a real person'. It's friendly and the
day is filled with fun interactions with
colleagues and customers. Of course,
we have our moments, but things are
generally resolved quickly by talking
through any issues. I feel I can be myself
and that is really important to me.
If you like to learn, you'll love Ridgeons.
There is lots of support for development
and every day there are learning
opportunities in our day to day work.
Our industry is moving fast and I want to
work for a company which moves with
the times. Part of the reason we've been
so successful for so long is that we're
encouraged to find opportunities to
improve and changes happen quickly,
once they've been identified.
I'm definitely proud to be Ridgeonsy!"
It's been an absolute pleasure to work with our
