I have worked in the composite industry since 1997. Working many contracts across Europe as a Laminator( pre-preg and GRP), A Trimmer/Fitter, and in Quality. I’ve worked on many projects within motorsport, F1, Marine, Aerospace, and GRP to name a few. Making many friends along the way.
After many years of contracts finishing, the panic of getting another job, waiting for that call back from a recruitment agent with a start.
So, in May 2008, I set up The Composite Network. Primarily for myself and the friends/colleagues have met over the last 11 years. The group was designed for us all to share job opportunities, stories and advice.
4 years later, the word spread, and the network had grown to over 1000 members. As the years rolled by, Companies and recruitment agencies started to use the Network group to advertise Jobs.
As the popularity of the group grew, so did the applications to join. The Composite Network that I created, had started to become a popular global platform for job seekers and recruiters alike.
Fast forward to August 2022. The Composite Network has over 14,600 members and is growing rapidly. We have Laminators, Designer engineers, Fitters, GRP finishers, painters, Trimers, Machinists, etc, all using the group to gain employment. Recruiters fulfilling positions within minutes.
In the last 3 months, The Composite Network has had a staggering 162K views and over 650 posts/comments.
I am receiving in excess of 100 applicants to join every week. Everyone gets vetted to prevent spam posts, this takes up a lot of my time, but it’s important to keep the page tidy, and free from unwanted guests posting videos, political spew, etc.
May I say a massive thank you to all those who have made The Composite Network a success.
