New job roles to be created as engineering company expands

AN ENGINEERING company which is enjoying further expansion due to increased demand for its bespoke solutions is creating new jobs.

Six new positions are being created at Forth, which has bases at Maryport, Cleator Moor and Barrow, all in Cumbria.

The company is well known for delivering fast, value-for-money, innovative engineering solutions to industry challenges across the UK and worldwide.

It works across all industries, including nuclear, oil and gas, renewables, agriculture and utilities.

Mark Telford, Forth’s Managing Director, said: “As predicted 2023 is proving to be a very exciting year for Forth. We have several exciting and innovative projects in the pipeline.

Mark Telford, the Managing Director of Forth, is creating new job roles as the company continues to expand.

“One of the most pleasing aspects of this work is that we are able to create even more job opportunities in the local area.

“We remain passionate about keeping jobs in Cumbria by bringing as many projects to the county as possible to help boost the local economy and support our communities.

“It’s a competitive jobs market out there and it can be difficult for SMEs like us, and many others in Cumbria, to recruit and retain staff at times, especially given some of the larger employers we have in this county.

“That’s why we focus on developing our people, empowering our team to think differently and deliver solutions to a variety of industries regionally, nationally and globally.

“It means you can enjoy a career with Forth knowing that no two days will ever be the same.”

Recently named 11th in the in-Cumbria top 100 businesses, Forth is widely recognised for the quality, expertise and can-do attitude of its team.

Mark said: “We are always on the look-out for talent and invest in our people so we can bring on the next generation of Forth engineers.

“We believe that providing professional development helps motivate staff, and that in turn benefits the business.”

Forth engineers were heralded earlier this month for supporting the community by restoring lighting at the Wave at Whitehaven Harbour after the popular and iconic structure had been in darkness for several years.
