Recruited as part of the W.Howard’s commitment to supporting the next generation, Jamie McDonnell and Matthew Bellin have joined the group within its Logistics and Business Support teams, respectively.

McDonnell (right) will be based at the company’s Albion Manchester Distribution Centre, while learning about the company’s logistics processes, which deliver much of W.Howard's core range across the UK mainland.

Bellin (left) has embarked on a Level 3 Apprenticeship in Business Administration. Over the next 18 months he will be working in a number of different areas within the business, where he will gain experience working closely with the Project, Sales and Estimating, Finance and Logistics teams.

Jonathan Grant, W.Howard Group Chief Executive, says: “We are delighted that Jamie and Matthew are joining the W.Howard Group. We have always been committed to supporting the next generation of industry professionals, and have had apprentices working in all our teams across the business for many years.

“Training is highly valued across our business – both for new employees and for our existing team. We will continue to invest in training, and by providing apprenticeships for people to help them gain the academic knowledge and practical skills they need to begin their careers in the industry.”
