Careers

A career with a purpose.

The only way to deliver great work every day is to work with great people who can thrive in their environment. From training to treats, we’ve created a fantastic place to work where our people can build a career with purpose that they can be truly proud of.

From day one, all our team members are encouraged to create a personal VTO (Vision Traction Organiser) in which they outline their personal and career aspirations for the next year, three years, and five years. This plan is reviewed regularly, with any relevant training and support given where possible, so we can be sure that our colleagues achieve their personal goals.

Our diverse team bring their unique ideas and talent to work every day. We continually recognise the contributions of our individuals and teams through awards and special teambuilding events that we call PRIDE experiences. From cookery classes to white water rafting, we’re sure you’ll find something you’ll want to get involved in.

What’s it like to work for Dura?

As part of our recruitment process, you’ll meet various members of the Dura Composites team to give you a flavour of our friendly culture and how it underpins everything we do as business. We’ve developed our own PRIDE culture values which we believe have a real impact on our productivity, efficiency, and business results. Our P stands for purpose, our R for respect, our I for innovation, our D is for decisiveness and our E is for encouragement.

  • Meet Harry

    Hi, I’m Harry, a Draughtsperson in the CAD team at Dura. I was 17 and studying at Clacton Coastal Academy when I first started thinking about what to do next. Apparently playing Call of Duty professionally isn’t a good career choice, but I’d always been interested in technology and wanted the opportunity to see what I could do with that.

    I started with a work experience placement that fitted in with my studies, and now 4 years later, I’m a fully-fledged Draughtsperson and am responsible for the in-house material testing we do for our walkway products.

    A usual day at Dura starts with a jug of coffee for me and the team as we discuss our tasks for the day. We use an online project management tool to manage our workload and whilst some projects need standalone resource, we do collaborate a lot as a team.

    No two days are the same. Projects can vary from small take-offs for riser voids to huge site surveys. When work’s over, several of us head off to play badminton or go for a run, and some nights, we order pizza in and have a PC gaming night in the office.

  • Meet Karina

    Hi, I’m Karina. I’ve been working for Dura Composites now for the best part of 8 years, and as the years have gone by, I am proud to say that as I’ve watched the company expand, I’ve also grown personally alongside my career. Some of the particular perks of working for Dura, are all the fun internal wellbeing and charity events they put on during the working day, as well as the some of the friendships I have formed.

    In my time here, I’ve been lucky to have the opportunity to develop my knowledge and experience by working in different sectors, from Decking & Cladding, to Marine, and now to High-Rise, from which I have grown from a Sales Executive to Key Account Manager.

    In my role within the High-Rise team so far, I’ve been given the freedom to explore areas of the industry which I am most interested in, such as meeting new people, building relationships with clients and the ability to quote large construction projects, such as the iconic Kings Theatre in Edinburgh that I’m currently working on. I love that I have the option to mix things up and get away from my desk to join the guys on site, the atmosphere is refreshing. I find the fast-paced nature of the industry exciting, and it motivates me to provide the highest level of service to my clients by being on-hand, on site to share any of my knowledge that can assist with a project.

    Alongside my competitive personality, I enjoy fine dining, and spending time with family and friends as well as my guilty pleasure… Karaoke.

  • Meet Terry

    Hi, my name’s Terry. I joined Dura Composites back in 2011 as a trainee saw operator, when we were a team of just 4. In the past decade I’ve seen massive changes at Dura, including the launch of our fantastic new Operations Centre.

    I’m proud to say, I’m now running the Cut Shop at our Production Centre, looking after 11 team members, and I enjoy the challenges that my role brings. I work in partnership with members of our sales teams, making sure their orders are cut correctly and that they are carefully prepared and packaged to arrive safely with our customers all over the world.

    My department is a fast-paced environment which produces over 50% of all the materials dispatched from Dura. Our Saw Operatives have a wide range of skills and a great can-do attitude, and we enjoy the fact that every day is a little bit different.

    When I’m not at work, I am a huge Liverpool football fan and love spending time with my partner and family doing something totally different from my day job.
