Why Purvis Marquees?
We are a family run company with a very tight knit team. Combining over 150 years of experience in the marquee, tensile structure and event services industry, the knowledge base within our company is wide and long lasting.
Some of our employees have been with the company for 40+ years showing that Purvis Marquees is a company you can settle down and look forward to a long, prosperous and secure career.
With an extensive training program, there is much to learn. We are one of very few marquee companies in the UK who work with a diverse range of structures meaning you are kept on your toes and learn to think on your feet. We hold a Royal Warrant so have the privilege of providing the Royal Garden Party to the Royal Household on a yearly basis, not only in Scotland but many other contracts over the years including Buckingham Palace, Hampton Court Palace, Balmoral Castle and of course our home, The Palace of Holyroodhouse. Currently we are specifically looking for Trainee Site Managers. The best candidate would be brought on board to work closely with the Project Team and relevant key staff members from which many years of knowledge and
understanding for our industry would be passed on. Not just learning our documentation and record keeping, but also in operating plant machinery, organising crews and equipment, driving our CDM structured processes on site and maintaining the high level of expectation our clients expect, especially when working on our Royal contracts.
Experience as a foreman or site manager is not essential but would be beneficial. A current UK driving licence is essential as you will be running multiple sites with the need to travel. You will need to be strong-willed, vocal, fast learner with a desire to take charge – of course, an enjoyment of working in the good old Scottish outdoors is a must.
We also require General Labourers and Site Foreman, both seasonal and full-time positions are available. No experience is necessary but would be beneficial. A UK driving licence would also be a preference meaning you could drive the companies vehicles.
We are looking for people who fit into the hard working and safety conscious teams that we have, is that you?
If you are interested in applying for one of these positions then please contact us, either on 0131 335 3685 or email your CV to our General Manager, John Brown at email@example.com
