Based in Nottingham, J Wright Roofing was established in May 1991 by Mr Jason Wright, who, after completing his own apprenticeship under his father, had a disagreement one Friday and was sacked. Out of sheer stubbornness he set up on the following Monday with no money, no business skill and no customers.
Today, after over 27 years, J Wright Roofing is a multi-million pound award winning roofing contractor with its core business still in traditional roofing, alongside other Roofing disciplines and a strong emphasis on training and apprenticeships. Working in partnership with local schools & Local Authorities throughout the East Midlands and Lincolnshire.
Our versatile workforce is growing with our business and we currently employ over 70 full-time staff and continue to offer work opportunities to many small sub-contractor teams who work alongside us.
Our commercial fleet consists of 24 vehicles.
We are happy to undertake both large and small projects and our performance remains consistent throughout all projects undertaken.
Local Community Development:
J Wright Roofing Ltd are heavily involved with local communities and we link up with the local schools and, in particular, the Bulwell Academy, to provide work experience to the school students and then full framework apprentices with the scope to lead onto a qualified workforce who are, in turn, contributing back into the local economy.
A simple policy with a hugely positive impact which, in turn, provides us with a new generation of skilled operatives to help plug the chronic skills gap both locally and nationally.
We have been training for over 17 years now, and are proud to offer higher education internship programmes working alongside Nottingham Trent University.
Our roofing academy is growing year by year, and in early 2016 the then Prime Minister David Cameron came to visit us to see for himself the deep well of expertise and range of opportunities we provide to help maintain a thriving – and highly skilled – talent pool of roofers.
If you’d like to know more about our company, want to enquire about our academy or training opportunities, or wish to arrange a survey for some roofing work, contact J Wright Roofing today.
