Recruiting the best people is something the whole business is passionate about.
That’s why we have designed our recruitment and selection process to be as fair and productive as possible. We want every candidate to have the opportunity to present themselves in the best light – and give ourselves the chance to see what you can bring to our business.
- If your application has been shortlisted, you will be invited to an initial interview. In this meeting, we’ll assess your experience against the job criteria and give you the chance to talk about your particular skills and strengths.
- To give you every opportunity to demonstrate your abilities, we may ask you to take part in a practical exercise such as a group discussion or a psychometric assessment.
- For most roles, a second interview is required before the final selection is made.
- If you are selected we will contact you however, if you are not successful, we are happy to provide feedback to assist you with your job search.
Equality in the workplace is an important part of how we operate. Whatever your age, gender, disability status, sexual orientation, religion, ethnicity or family circumstances we make it our business to ensure you’re treated with fairness and respect.
We understand that the interview is not just about us assessing your fit with our business; you also need to decide whether a career at ROCKWOOL is right for you. Please feel free to ask questions about the role, training and development, the work environment and our culture. You may also get the chance to meet some of the people you would be working with too.
We reward every one of our employees fairly for their contribution. In addition to salary, all staff members receive our standard benefits package which includes the following:
- Holiday entitlement
We provide 30 days paid holiday each year in addition to public holidays.
- Generous pension
We contribute 5% of each employee’s pensionable earnings to a stakeholder pension account (provided the individual also contributes 5%).

- Health care assistance
Every employee can claim back charges (to a given level) for optical and dental care, diagnostic appointments, physiotherapy, osteopathy, chiropractic, acupuncture and homeopathy.
- Employee helpline
We provide a free, confidential 24 hour helpline for employees. Professional advisors offer telephone support and information on how to deal with legal, tax, medical, lifestyle and travel issues.
Each job specification describes the skills and knowledge necessary to carry out a position successfully. Please ensure that your application clearly explains what relevant skills and experience you have to offer.
- The best applications are usually structured to match the job specification

- Think about how your application will compare to others and try to ensure your strengths really stand out

“I enjoy the fact that I am still learning new things. In fact, everyone who has ever given me training has been more than willing to share their skills and experience. It still amazes me to think of the process we use to produce stone wool from rocks!”
