Arc Energy Finance Manager Engineers A Move To Production

After six years as Finance Manager with (Gloucestershire/Eastington-based) weld overlay cladding and fabrication specialist Arc Energy Resources, Rachel Chatterton has moved from the office to the factory floor to take on the important role of Production Manager.

Rachel says she was inspired to apply for the position by the prospect of developing the potential of the young people in the Arc Energy workshop whose abilities and attitudes impress her so much.

Rachel is perfectly qualified for her new role, with previous experience including twenty-five years in senior engineering and finance positions. “I enjoyed both disciplines,” she explains: “but when, after six years in the Arc Energy finance department the production manager job became available, it was an opportunity I didn’t want to miss.”

Commenting for Arc Energy, managing director Alan Robinson says: “These days recruitment is one of our biggest problems, and finding good engineering people is especially difficult. So when Rachel applied it was an easy decision. She knows our business, knows our industry, knows many of our customers and buys into our key values of developing a highly skilled and respected workforce.”
