Company profile

Fireside Properties are a well established supplier of Fires and Fireplaces with two Fireplace Showrooms (One in Glasgow and One in Edinburgh). We manufacture our own Marble and Limestone Fireplaces on site in Glasgow for sale through our two showrooms.
We carried out a comprehensive desktop Market Research exercise and contacted all of the major Trade customers in Scotland (Fireplace Showrooms )
This identified a gap in the Scottish Market for a supplier of Bespoke ,High Quality Fireplaces at competitive prices and short lead times - a service that our competitors across the border can't match.
On that basis we decided to set up a stand alone business "Stone Products Scotland Limited"
Whilst having Fireside as our main customer we see major opportunities for growth by supplying other fireplace showrooms in Scotland.

Commitment to completing a qualification in Process Manufacturing through a Modern Apprenticeship is essential and desirable.

No experience is necessary but experience of working in a team is desirable.

Any Additional Requirements

It is anticipated that the start date for this role would be 1st November 2021. The successful candidate will be given the opportunity to complete a Modern Apprenticeship which will be over a two year period.
