Career Opportunities

Scottish Leather Group Limited is a privately owned group of leather manufacturers located in the west of Scotland but involved in international business with commercial activities throughout the world.

Our competitive edge derives directly from the excellence of our products and their application to the needs of our customers. It is maintained by the expertise, commitment and resourcefulness of our employees. We have a commitment to technical innovation and continuous improvement in both our products and processes. To shape our future, we seek the best people from a variety of backgrounds who are excited at the prospect of contributing to a long established, world class business.

Opportunities exist from time to time in most functions throughout the company but, as a leather manufacturer, we have particular interest in hearing from technically qualified people such as leather technologists, chemical engineers, product development technicians and process control engineers with appropriate experience. In addition, vacancies can arise in a number of other business functions such as quality, environment, health & safety, engineering, electronics, information technology, finance, logistics, sales, marketing, design, project and supply chain management. Opportunities exist also for school leavers and graduates wishing to pursue a career in the leather industry. Further education in leather technology (through the British School of Leather Technology at the University of Northampton) and in business management skills is available.
