Cheltenham-based heating and plumbing business, Shackleton & Wintle, has created more than 20 new jobs as part of its ambitious business plans for growth, driven by the merger with local electrical specialists, WJL Electrical.
The partnership, which was announced at the end of last year, has brought together two of Gloucestershire’s leading technical specialists to expand their joint offering. As a result, the new executive team, which comprises Shackleton & Wintle directors John Rogers, Malcolm Faulkner, Andy Richards and Wesley Lane of WJL, have initiated plans for expanding the business.
A total of 21 new roles have been created to cater for the growing needs of the business across both electrical and plumbing, including engineers to work with New Build, Commercial and Homeowner clients, as well as support staff for administration roles. There will also be a significant number of apprenticeships and training opportunities created as these additional roles are filled.
“We’ve been through some momentous changes this year, with our exciting merger and changes to our leadership team,” says John Rogers, Managing Director at Shackleton & Wintle.
“We’re now firmly looking to the future, and ensuring that we can make a success of our plans for growth. A crucial part of this will be recruiting a large number of experienced, high-calibre new employees across all areas of the business. The region has a huge amount of home-grown talent on offer, and we’re sure that this will be one of the business’s great strengths as we take it into this new chapter.”
