Panton McLeod, the Uk’s leading water quality engineering firm, has received another boost to its Scottish PR after being featured in a respected construction industry website.
Build Scotland ran a glowing report on the Borders-based firm, which has recently defied the credit crunch by successfully expanding its workforce and received a flood of applications from despertae, out-of-work construction experts.
Panton McLeod advertised for a junior labourer position last month and received more than 100 applications in just four days. The majority of the applicants came from out-of-work civil engineers and construction experts – some of whom were willing to commute from as far afield as Glasgow, Cardiff and Newcastle to work for the Borders-based company.
The publication said that the unprecidented interest in the job showed that the construction industry was still being badly affected by the recession.
