Local Employer: Global Company.....Rosti Speaks to Yr12

On Monday 3rd November, Yr12 enjoyed a talk from guest speaker Rob Macnaught, HR Adviser at Rosti. Rosti is a global injection moulding manufacturer, making precision parts and products for well known companies such as Jaguar Land Rover. Rob gave an overview of the company, which has offices and factories all over the world including Sweden (home of parent company 'Nordstjernan')  Poland, Turkey, Germany, China and Malaysia. The students were shown some of the products that Rosti make including the spoiler for the new Range Rover Discovery.

Rob also talked about his own career, and how he got into HR: from his first degree in Business from Hull to a Masters in HR at York University. He also described the wide variety of jobs available in a company such as Rosti for both apprentices and graduates: HR, sales, admin, design, tool operator, buyer etc.  It was also interesting to hear about what skills he looks for in a potential employee and the challenges of career interviews!

Overall, it was a very interesting insight into a large manufacturing company that has 4 factories in the UK: one being right on our doorstep in Pickering!
