It was great to be invited this week to the Science Showcase where we had the please of meeting students eagerly awaiting to deliver their presentations. We had the opportunity to speak to a number of you about the vacancies and the Graduate Trainee Management programme at Micronclean, a family run Lincolnshire business.
Micronclean has been owned and managed by one family since the 1920s and throughout our history we have focused quality, innovation, attention to detail and customer care. These attributes have been formalised into the SKIES company values which covers Stewardship, Knowledge, Innovation and Excellence. The SKIES’s attributes provide a compass for our strategic direction, help inform the multitude of day-to-day business decisions and keep our customers firmly at the centre of everything we do.
SKIES’s underpin all the products and services we offer, ranging from laundered garments and mopping services for both industrial clients and pharmaceutical companies throughout the UK to cleanroom consumables which are sold internationally.
Micronclean employs over 400 people across the UK with most of these being based at our three main production sites in Lincolnshire. We have an active Continuous Improvement programme driving business improvement for our customers.
Looking into the future we are confident of growth not only in the UK but also in export markets as we seek to leverage not only our laundered garment and mopping service but also consumables sales. Our unique in depth laundry knowledge delivers business opportunities in overseas markets in line with our mission statement. Over the two days we met with lecturers and leaders and there are some exciting conversations starting to take place about opportunities and how the university and our business can work together in the future.
Our HR manager Sarah Straughton and Associate Director Greg Cochran were both graduates from Lincoln University and would be willing to speak to you about possible opportunities and how their careers took shape.
