With an eye to taking on more millennials, Northamptonshire-based Great Central Plastics has boosted its team with three fresh, young employees. Offering a broad range of experience and professional interests, Zan Phillips, Hannah Norman and Kiron Phillips are the new kids on the block.
Harper Adams University graduate, Kiron, who studied business management and marketing, is a former intern of BTC Group who spent 12 months with the company. The second of the new trio, Hannah, spent her uni days at Liverpool John Moore’s and has previously worked with children. Recently she felt the time was right to change her career path and now Hannah is based in GCP’s sales and marketing department.
The final recruit, Zan, was a standout apprentice at Unilever where he broke company records by being offered full-time employment after only completing a quarter of his 2-year apprenticeship. Once he’d spent 18 months with Unilever, Zan joined the ranks of GCP and hasn’t looked back since, taking on the role of project manager.
Tony Phillips, managing director of the company which is now entering its 20th year of trading, prides the business on ‘having real people involved in the manufacturing process. Having staff adds quality reassurance whilst ensuring that the local community can benefit from the jobs offered locally.”
The company employs over 20 members of staff living within a five-mile radius of the factory premises. In this way, GCP can cater for the local community by offering a host of jobs to its residents.
