Expanding Our Design Team

After our first six months of trading it became apparent that we had too much work for the design team to be able to respond to all of our customers within an acceptable period of time. We decided at that point to go out and look for a couple of apprentices to strengthen the team - this proved to be easier said than done! With little response, we then wrote directly to all the local sixth form colleges and schools and whilst the initial response from staff was positive, again candidates proved elusive. 

Our next port of call was a local recruitment agency who came up with one strong CV, and then a speculative call from another agency brought a second prospective candidate. So after a fairly lengthy search we are pleased to announce the two new members of our design team at Cambridge Roof Truss. Amy Penrose and Alex Parkins  joined us three months ago now as Graduate Trainees.

Alex, a maths graduate from Nottingham Trent University has settled in well and is working hard. Amy, with an Interior Design degree from DeMontford University, already had some experience using CAD and wanted the opportunity to use the skills she had gained in her everyday work.

Both are being trained in our bespoke design software, learning how to interpret drawings and put together roof truss designs to our customers specifications. Whilst it takes considerable skill to learn the software, gaining experience takes time, and both have mentors within the business to help continually strengthen and build upon these skills.

As Amy and Alex come up to speed, we will be working hard to respond to our customers efficiently and promptly. If we can help you with your next project, we will be happy to price up the roof trusses and floor joists - you can upload your drawings via our contact us page!
