Join the UK’s leading Rail Supplier!

Since 2012 there has been a success story developing in the rail supply chain. Scott Parnell first opened its doors when Dave Scott and Steve Parnell spotted a gap in the market for an independent merchant with strengths in specific sectors.

Rail quickly became a significant part of their business plan with a key focus on an expert led, personal service. With a thorough understanding of the sector, Rail Directors Ian Allwright and Matt Davidson have grown the business from a standing start to the leading rail merchant in the UK.

And now the business heads North to grow further. Scott Parnell opened its Leeds branch in 2019 and once again the business has written a success story.

There are exciting times ahead in the North of England and Scotland with major rail schemes like Transpennine and Glasgow’s Subway Modernisation proving investment has been committed and a modern railway can benefit all areas of the UK.

These are not only exciting times for the UK Rail Sector but also for Scott Parnell. Internal restructure saw Leanne Horrigan take the lead as Commercial Director in 2020, driving the business to work collaboratively to achieve further growth. This highlighted the need to grow the Northern Division and Sharon Meek, Head of Rail Strategy & Specification and Charlie Hurst, Rail Manager North will be pivotal in its success.

Could you join Scott Parnell? Are you an ambitious, independent, customer focussed individual that could join their growing Rail Team?

Looking after core business products comes naturally to Scott Parnell but its range of innovative, sustainable products is where the company differ from other suppliers. The Arcosystem, Technocrete and FlexMSE products see it support the customer base over and above core range products. Introducing them to products which improve efficiencies and reduces carbon impact through construction.

Scott Parnell is now looking to introduce these products and its business to the Scottish regions and are looking for the perfect candidate. It is looking for key attributes such as being able to engage with and build a customer base through CPD presentations, meetings and exhibitions. Initially working alone with a view for the business to expand, the applicant must be driven, motivated and ambitious. Previous rail experience is essential.

Hours are 40 per week, Monday to Friday 8am – 5pm. Salary negotiable depending on experience. To apply please forward your CV to
