There are multiple Marley sites across Britain. Wherever you work for us, you will find the same high standards and a culture and approach that emphasise innovation continuous improvement, health and safety, lean manufacturing, and high-quality products.
Read more about the fantastic work at each of these sites and the driving principles you will see in action there below:
We also have distribution sites at Bridgend and Aylesford.
A thriving head office
With over 200 members of staff, our head office is a place where the Marley ethos of people pulling together really comes into its own. With a complete range of departments to support the continued success and development of our modern manufacturing business, our head office is a thriving, bustling central hub.
We have an incredibly wide range of roles at all levels, from trainees to highly-experienced specialists and senior managers. When you read about our departments, you will notice a central theme of people working together, sharing best practice and learning from each other. That is why we are looking for people who, like us, want to grow and develop – to provide the best possible products and/or services by working to the highest standards.
A manufacturing site for concrete tiles and fittings
At the Burton manufacturing facility, we are responsible for around 40% of the company’s concrete roofing products. There are three main lines and two ancillary lines for manufacturing high-quality concrete tiles and fittings, plus hand-made concrete fittings and fixing pack assembly.
We focus on being a safe, lean manufacturer and there is a very positive culture on health and safety, quality, and environmental issues. We also want to be the best! With the focus on continuous improvement, one recent initiative has been to send managers and team leaders to other sites to look at 5S initiatives and continuous improvement techniques.
This is a real team environment – a manufacturing team working together and encompassing a wide range of skill sets including electrical, mechanical and production.
We are all committed to producing a great product and you will be encouraged to come forward with ideas and suggestions.
You will receive training that is relevant to your role. For example, if you are a team leader, you’ll receive training in management techniques and attend IOSH training courses.
Time is also allotted for training with an emphasis on health, safety and environmental issues.
If you join us for production, you will receive training in more than one job in your area, helping you develop your skills and enjoy more variety in your role as well as enabling you to provide more flexible support.
Our Keele site is based close to the M6 motorway in Cheshire. It has modern production lines that support the production of quality hand-made Marley roof tiles.
We are always looking towards the future and ways to improve processes and outputs. We rely on our employees/teams to identify how this can be done. For example, we put an initiative in place to minimise waste, and we have achieved substantial reduction in that.
We encourage and invest in the development of our teams to ensure the continued success of the site. We currently have around 140 employees here including a production manager, operators, team leaders, shift managers, maintenance team, administration, planning (production and maintenance), quality department, EHSQ officer, samples and stores personnel.
Production provides many opportunities for development within the company and is a fantastic gateway to progression. You will gain a great deal of knowledge on the core function of the business and develop many transferable skills.
Everyone is a key part of the business. We will drive and support you to excel in your abilities, participate in team work, voice your opinions, make recommendations and be involved in company projects or site improvements.
