New jobs created as Newcastle engineering business celebrates record year

Following its most successful year to date electro mechanical engineering specialist Houghton International is now recruiting for at least 15 new jobs to help support further growth ambitions in 2019.

Having recorded 20% year on year growth for a number of years the Newcastle-based company, which improves the performance of electro mechanical assets around the world, is currently recruiting for a range of roles including mechanical fitters, administrators and sales staff.

A recruitment open morning is being held at the business’ Walker head office on 23rd March to provide more information to potential applicants about the business and the roles available. Staff, including heads of each of Houghton International’s departments, will be on hand to answer questions and tours will be provided around the business, providing a chance for applicants to see the work they would be undertaking.

Pamela Lamming, HR Director at Houghton International, commented: “We have continued to see excellent growth across the business with another record year and increasing demand for our products and services globally despite the wider economic uncertainty surrounding Brexit.

“A career in electro mechanical engineering offers long term stability. Our business strategy is focused around fundamental needs such as water, power and transport and we have long term contracts in place until 2025 and beyond. We believe that we offer attractive career and development potential.

“Further recruitment is needed to support our growth. We currently have a number of roles available and we expect to recruit for another 20 roles later in the year in order to deliver our targets for 2019. A key principle at Houghton International is to ‘hire for attitude and train for skill,’ which is why we highly encourage applicants from other industries who can bring with them transferable skills and a fresh perspective on the work we do.

“As a business we are committed to investing in our team and developing our people to be the best, in order to deliver the excellent level of service our customers expect. We’re always on the lookout for talented people and I would encourage anyone with an interest in joining Houghton International to visit our website and register to attend this Saturday’s open morning to find out more about the business and what we have to offer.”

Based in Newcastle upon Tyne, Houghton International provides repair, maintenance and life extension services regionally, nationally and internationally across a broad range of sectors including power generation, renewables, industrial, water, oil and gas, marine and rail.

Founded in 1984, Houghton International has expanded over the last 30 years into a multi-million pound, multinational business. The company has grown from originally serving one customer to now working with over 200 customers globally.
