Working with Cougar Pumps
Cougar Pumps is an established company with a great future and huge potential. We’ve been around since 1980, and have grown steadily and securely.
To keep that growth going, we are always looking for new and enthusiastic people. We offer full time employment opportunities, apprenticeship placements and trainee posts in the following areas:
Office based sales – contacting past, current and potential future customers by phone, letter and email.
External sales - getting out in the field, visiting customers, tracking down new opportunities.
Service engineers - you’ll be out on the road every day, visiting customers and fixing their problems.
Workshop engineers - when pumps go really wrong, we bring them to our workshop where they are stripped down, fixed, and made to look like new.
Marketing - generating new business is an essential part of any firm’s growth. We embrace all types of marketing and would love people with imagination and creativity to come and work with us. You’ll work closely with the sales team to come up with some sparkling campaigns.
All our job roles are open to all applicants.
What experience and qualifications do I need to apply for a job with Cougar?
We welcome applications from people across the whole range of academic achievement. If you have qualifications that’s great, but if you don’t - that’s not a problem.
Experience is a bonus – it can be valuable. But if you’re keen to build a career in any of the job roles we offer and it’s completely new to you, don’t worry.
So what do I need?
What’s really important to us? Two things: that you’re punctual (we really like our team to show up on time in the morning) and that you’re enthusiastic! (We want to you to come to us interested and willing to learn.)
We are happy to provide all the training, support and resources you need to grow your skills, learn your job, be really good at it and get the most from your role.
