Varied Work for a Company that Cares

While we are always looking for new recruits, we are also pleased to welcome returners back to the pack. Dru recently re-joined Universal Wolf having left to start a new job closer to home. For him, the most important thing was having varied and challenging work to keep his mind active, and to continue to develop his skills within a company that cares.

Dru says:

“I left Universal Wolf for a job with less travel and more money but found the work incredibly monotonous, and I felt myself starting to stagnate. I left Universal Wolf on good terms and, pride aside, had no issue with approaching the business about returning. The people here are great and easy to get on with, the company looks after you, and the work is varied. Returning was absolutely the right decision for me.”

Melanie Stewart, Welding & Fabrication Lead

Melanie Stewart is our Welding and Fabrication Lead. She is responsible for maintaining industrial and quality welding standards; driving improvements in our welding processes and the training that goes with them. She is also heavily involved in Continuous Improvement across the business, with a focus on welding and fabrication.

Mel has travelled the world as a Quality Engineer, working offshore and in locations including Mexico, Qatar, and Russia. She brings a passion for welding and a keen eye for detail, which she uses to drive continuous improvement and ensure we are always delivering the very best for our customers.

Mel says:

“When I first started my career, a woman working in welding was a rarity and it was very difficult to progress. I’m pleased to say that things have changed dramatically since then! Universal Wolf has given me the opportunity to truly be a leader and contribute to the business.”

Craig McFall, Supervisor

Craig has been with Universal Wolf for more than seven years, joining as a time-served Welder Fabricator. Craig joined our Grow our Own programme, which is designed to provide colleagues with further training in their current role, or the opportunity to learn something different in a new department. He has since been promoted to Team Leader and then Production Supervisor.

“For me, Universal Wolf has allowed me to push myself further and realise my ambitions. We work as a pack and will always back each other to master that new skill, solve that problem or take the next step forward in your career.”
