New job opportunities on the horizon at Houghton International

Houghton International Apprentices with CEO

In light of continued growth, Houghton International is on the lookout for talented individuals to join the team and contribute to the business’ ongoing success.

With a growing pipeline across a range of sectors, Houghton International expects to soon be expanding its workforce to meet the needs of a diverse and developing customer base. The business has grown significantly for a number of years, expanding and investing in a large machine workshop in 2016, a pumps division in 2018 and a relocation to a 120,000 sq ft facility in 2020. It plans to continue this growth trajectory, and further investment in its people, equipment and facilities is key to this goal.

Michael Mitten, CEO of Houghton International, commented: “Houghton International strives for excellence – excellent service, excellent facilities and excellent people. Having recently made major investments in our expansion to the Ronnie Mitten Works, we are in a great position to continue our growth and will soon be investing further in our team. Our people are at the centre of what we do and we aim to be the employer of choice for talented people, investing in them to ensure they are provided with the best opportunities.”

Houghton International was recently ranked in the top 10 Best Places to Work in the North East and its award-winning training and apprenticeship schemes have been widely recognised as industry-leading. The business offers a raft of benefits, rewards and opportunities for progression to attract the best in the industry.

Michael Mitten added: “The world is changing rapidly, and as a business we must continue to innovate and adapt to ensure we remain at the forefront. Whilst there is still a level of global uncertainty at the moment, around both the economy and the pandemic, I have every confidence in the future of our industry and strongly believe now is the time to invest in that future.

“With a strong pipeline ahead of us, we are always looking for talented individuals who are keen to develop and contribute to the growth of the company. I would encourage anyone who may be interested in working at Houghton International to submit their CV today.”
