Plant Leadership

Each of our sites has a dedicated management team, ensuring that the operation runs smoothly, that customers are serviced efficiently and with the highest levels of care and attention, and that our people are given the opportunities to flourish and develop. General Managers own the overall performance and profitability of the site and deliver service excellence through their Production Manager, Logistics Manager, Engineering Manager and Operations Manager. We look for excellent leadership skills and proven experience of developing and motivating teams.



Our Logistics teams cover everything from Drivers through to route planning and Logistics Management. Our Drivers are the true face of the business to many of our customers, collecting and delivering linens for both large and small accounts and ensuring that each one receives excellent service. Our Logistics Supervisors and Managers work closely with their site management on route planning and optimisation. To be a Driver, you’ll need to hold a relevant licence and a current Certificate of Professional Compliance.



Our Engineering teams make sure that our plants and machinery operate efficiently by keeping to Planned Preventative Maintenance (PPM) schedules and dealing with day to day machine issues including breakdown. Without your expertise, we wouldn’t be able to service our customers, so your role is critical to our success! You’ll have experience of either (or both) electrical or mechanical trades, and hold a recognised qualification in your field. You’ll be happy working shifts and will need excellent communication skills to be able to work successfully with colleagues on other shifts.



Our production teams are the people who really drive our business. Our Operatives are responsible for sorting, loading, ironing or packaging our linens, either in one of our plants or onsite with one of our large healthcare clients. Develop into a Team Leader role, and from there you could make the move into management and beyond! You’ll have excellent communication skills and great attention to detail. You’ll also be happy working as part of a team and enjoy delivering a quality service.

Sales and Service

Sales and Service

Our Sales and Service teams manage our customer relationships- whether through being out on the road and visiting new and existing business, or being site-based and responding to customer queries. Both functions feed customer information and market knowledge back into the business to allow us to improve our service and enable us to be our customer’s best partner for today and tomorrow.

Corporate Service

Corporate Service

Our Central teams provide the support services that keep our business going. From HR to Marketing, Finance to Legal Services, we look for candidates who are as passionate as we are about delivering excellent service. The wider business depends on us making the right decision at the right time, and you’ll have the ability to add value from day one.
