    Job Opportunities
    We will always consider motivated, hard-working staff with an interest in the sound and lighting / music industry.

    As part of our ongoing expansion we are currently looking for atl east one new member to join our team. There are opportunities for both full-time and part-time roles within various parts of the business. Past experience is not essential, but would be beneficial, the main requirements are a passion for audio and sound, and an enthusiastic approach to challenges.
    Job roles we are looking to fill, in some cases a single applicant may be able to fulfil more than one role.

    1. Wood Machinist / Cabinet Maker we are developing a range of self-assembly DIY speaker project kits. This role will include preparing flat pack speaker kits, test-assembly of prototype speaker kits, assembling and finishing speakers for custom orders. For someone with the appropriate experience, this role would also include designing speakers and programming CAD designs.

    2. Sales Assistant Love Speakers? Think you know a thing or two? Want to help others with their speaker projects? Our busy sales team could use some help. Responsibilities include answering the phone, replying to emails, preparing quotations, website maintenance and much more.

    3. Marketing/Graphics Designer Handy with Photoshop? Got graphics experience? Our marketing department needs a part-time designer who can assist with making adverts for social media, printed fliers, website banners, and general marketing. Previous experience would be essential. As this is a part-time position, this may well suit a university student looking to get some real world marketing/graphics experience to complement their course.

    4. PCB Assembly Our in-house custom passive crossover assembly facility is getting busier, the job involves winding inductors, and soldering capacitors, resistors and inductors onto a PCB. Some basic knowledge of electronic circuits would be beneficial. This is currently a part-time role, which could be filled in conjunction with one of the other roles listed above.

    5. Hires Assistant Our hire department is getting busy, with lots of bookings over the summer. Occasionally we'll need an extra pair of hands loading and unloading vans, setting up sound systems, and checking hire equipment is in full working order. If you love playing with sound, and dont mind lifting a few speakers, this is a great opportunity to get involved.

    Any applicant should be keen, enthusiastic, and willing to get involved in all aspects of the business as and when required.

    If you think you have what it takes to be part of our team please send a CV to the sales office for the attention of Andy Kos.

    WEEE (waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment)
    The amount of electrical waste we throw away is increasing by around 5% each year, making it the fastest growing waste stream in the UK.

    This increase is mainly down to:

    new technologies being developed
    affluent society
    throw away lifestyle
    Over 75% of waste electrical goods end up in landfill, where lead and other toxins contained in the electrical goods can cause soil and water contamination.

    Many of the electrical items that we throw away can be repaired or recycled. Recycling items helps to save natural finite resources and also reduces the environmental and health risks associated with sending waste electrical goods to landfill.

    You can recycle many electrical and electronic items, to find out more go to the Recycle-More website, which will give you details of your local recycling centre.

    If you see this crossed out wheeled bin symbol on a piece of equipment, please do not throw it in the bin at the end of it's useful life, you should take it to your nearest recycling centre Click here to find your nearest recycling facilities

    Some Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment can contain hazardous substances which could be damaging to the environment and to human health if disposed of in landfill. The best solution is to take all Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment to a recycling centre where any recyclable materials will be recovered, and the remainder will be disposed of in an environmentally sound manner.

    In order to partially meet our obligations as a distributor as defined in the UK Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) Regulations (SI 2006 No. 3289 - 11 December 2006), we have opted to become a full member of the Distributor Take back Scheme (DTS) as defined in regulation 35 of the WEEE Regulations. As a member of the DTS, we have made a financial contribution toward the development of the network of Designated Collection Facilities (DCFs) for WEEE instead of collecting waste items instore. This financial contribution is described in paragraphs 83 to 88 of the UK WEEE guidance, and has been used to improve the WEEE collection facilities located at Local Authority Civic Amenity sites. To locate your local WEEE collection site, please visit www.recycle-more.co.uk or contact our customer services department.
