Here’s what some of our team members have to say about working at Northern Industrial:

Adam Smith
Daniel Jones
Dave Murchie
Natalie Taylor
Rebecca Berry
Sue Braysford
  • Adam Smith - Engineering

    "I remember starting and there were only 11 members of staff! Three of them were bench engineers and absolutely no sales team! To now having 30+ engineers and an office full of sales staff is great, we're constantly growing. Having so many engineers now, the workshop is full of different characters and talents. We're always learning something new from each other all the time, it doesn't matter how long you've been here or how much experience you have."

  • Daniel Jones - Purchasing

    "My day is never the same at Northern Industrial, it’s always a mix of talking to different suppliers from all over the world and solving different customers’ problems. One thing that is always consistent is how busy we are, which is why it’s great that the sourcing & purchasing team all work so well together. I’ve enjoyed training up apprentices to show how we do things and it’s always nice to receive a nice treat from suppliers once in a while, like the caramel waffles we sometimes get from the Netherlands."

  • Dave Murchie - Trade Counter

    "The greatest thing about it is the variety of work. Every day we get different things coming in or out, different tasks and challenges. It's also amazing how many countries we send to, whether it's to French Polynesia, Djibouti or Antarctica, we always manage to get equipment to and from no matter what problem comes up! Another great perk to the job is finding treats in some of the parcels. Around Christmas, we get a lot of weird and wonderful gifts from suppliers across the globe. My Favourite has to be little sweets from Japan, since you have no idea what it's going to be!"

  • Natalie Taylor - Sales

    "The whole atmosphere at Northern Industrial is just amazing, I love the fact that it's a family run business. The people that work here really are great, we all get on very well as a team and the company always listens to you and your ideas. I'm really close with all of my colleagues, we're constantly arranging work days out! Whether it's golf, BBQ's or bowling! We're always doing something."

  • Rebecca Berry - Marketing

    "The company has grown so much since I started back in 2011, it’s nice to feel like your work has made a difference to a company. I get to do a good mix of marketing here, instead of focusing on one aspect, which makes my days go quickly and keeps me engaged. When I started I was the only member of the marketing department, we now have a small team and we all have a laugh together which is great. I love being in a position where I get to see the results of our team’s work, such as through increasing conversion and improving user experience."

  • Sue Braysford - Admin

    "Northern Industrial always keeps me on my toes. There's always something to do and with things always updating, I never get bored! I've had a lot of personal growth while working here, constantly learning new ways to do things. It's a pleasure working with the admin team, we always stick together and help one another."
