My Harworth Story
After 18 years working as a mechanical engineer in the mining industry, I initially joined Harworth as an Estates Engineer and have now had the privilege of working for the company for over 20 years.
Back then, Harworth was a small division of RJB/UK Coal Mining, but as time went by the department grew from about 6 staff to 20. Harworth then split from the parent company to become the successful property and land development business that it is today.
We now employ over 70 staff and I’m extremely proud to have been part of the Harworth journey where I’ve seen first-hand the company go from strength to strength.
“I have seen Harworth grow and it’s a great company to work for”Ian Rogers, Environmental Manager
As mentioned, my own journey with Harworth began as the Estates Engineer. After a few years, I was promoted to Business Park Manager and responsible for the day to day running of the company’s commercial property portfolio.
In 2012 I had a change of direction in my career and became the Environmental Risk Manager. To enable me to carry out this role, the company supported me to obtain several Health & Safety and environmental professional qualifications. My most recent qualification was a WAMITAB level 4 diploma in waste management operations which has enabled me to manage Harworth’s Environmental permits.
All of this has been possible thanks to the way Haworth has continued to commit time and investment in to the professional development of its people.
When I look around the head office and visit our regional offices and development sites, I sense the enthusiasm and pride that all the staff have. This is reflected in the ongoing success of the business and one of the reasons Harworth will continue to be successful in the future.
