Why Join The NTG?
The NTG employs over 1,200 staff over a wide variety of job roles. Read below a few of our staff testimonials to find out what it is like to work for the NTG Group.
“Seven years ago this month, I was employed by Rembrand Timber as a pick up driver/storeman. A year into that I moved into the office and my title became Office Manager, about a year into this I was offered the Assistant Manager role which I accepted. One year into that role I had several different opportunities from various companies but I stuck to the path I was on, then I became Branch Manager of Rembrand Timber Inverness, a role that I enjoy. Now, seven years on, the boy that was once employed to actually deliver the timber is now responsible for the facts and figures. The boy that left school (with no qualifications and was told he would never amount to anything), has today been told he was successful and been given a dual manager role within the NTG.”

“I started at NTG doing a placement in March, 6 months later I am still on my journey grateful for every opportunity and learning curve I am given. Not very many people have the privilege to work under a team who are supportive and provide opportunities to develop my skills and confidence through projects and tasks. Excited to see where the journey takes me and hope to continue to develop myself within NTG.”

“I started in July at Intelligent Door Solutions as a marketing apprentice. From the very start I have been shown the up most respect and welcome from everyone. I have been provided with opportunities to get involved in branding, future events, meetings, and many other marketing projects. The work I am given is not only valuable for my learning, but also to other staff members which I feel really helps my progression and confidence in all my tasks. I feel very fortunate to be welcomed into this opportunity I now have, and am excited to continue my experience here.”

As part of NTG’s commitment to the ongoing development of our employees, it has started the roll out of the group’s learning management system – the Learning Gateway.
The Learning Gateway is an e-Learning platform that provides access to a range of short modules, such as Effective Communication Techniques, Respect in the Workplace and Time Management, that can be easily accessed from anywhere with an internet connection. The modules are interactive, giving the trainee the opportunity to engage with the training on screen rather than just watching a video.
The National Timber Group now has a Management Development Programme in Scotland. Over the next six months the programme will provide both professional and personal development through a mixture of NTG in-house workshops and bespoke residential development days created with JAMES Learning and Development Ltd.
Time will also be spent on the road with NTG’s business support team shadowing their diverse activities in branches.
