Business Set To Bring 200 New Jobs To The Area

Monday August 19 2013


We Are Barnsley We Are Barnsley


A BARNSLEY business is set to bring 200 new jobs to the area by the end of this year.

NWS, based on Maple Road, Tankersley, installs energy saving measures such as insulation and double glazing into homes. The company has hired 80 new staff over the past four weeks and plans to hire 120 more over the next four months.

It's been able to increase its workforce because of the company's recent approval as a Green Deal Installer and Assessor, which means they can now fit a wider variety of energy saving measures.

Russ Cowan, Managing Director of NWS, said: "This is a hugely exciting time for us. We have expanded rapidly over the past few weeks, with new staff including Green Deal assessors, technical surveyors, administration staff and heating engineers, through to window fitters and insulation specialists.

"As we employ all our own tradespeople in-house we can guarantee the quality of their work and ensure the best possible experience for our customers."

great but how sustainable will the jobs be? I bet they will all be self employed and have poor rates of pay.

How do I apply for a position?

Unless you are of Eastern European origin who fancies a zero hours contract on the minimum wage then I suggest you don't bother.

I agree with Stevo's post. There will be a few jobs created or the people of Barnsley, The jobs will go to people that are experienced, who will come from outside the area. If you think they they will spend money on training, you would be deluding yourselves.
