The Log Company are looking for a new full-time person to join our growing business.
The role will primarily involve the production and delivery of our various firewood products which is yard based, as well as time out on the road delivering to our customers.
Here at The Log Company we are proud to be the UK distributor for Kirami wood fired hot tubs and saunas. Alongside Kirami’s products we retail a wide range of wood fired outdoor living products from other well-known brands.
This diverse range of popular products means we are kept busy all year round. Deliveries can range from logs to surrounding villages, towns and cities in the winter season through to a trip to deliver and install wood fired hot tubs and saunas on a Scottish island in summer. Days are very rarely the same and there are great opportunities to be outdoors, travel the countryside and meet people.

We have a brand new Pinosa firewood processing factory which takes much of the manual work away. There is a good amount of operation of machinery such as telehandlers, forklifts and tractors, as well as regular driving of vans and 4×4 vehicles with trailers.
We have a number of ongoing projects within the business which would utilise other skills such as joinery, welding and fabrication and landscaping.
