In November, Scot JCB Group gained six new employees across three of our depots. Tracy, James, Pauline and Linda all joined the Glasgow depot into a variety of departments. Dan joined our Carnforth depot as our newest engineer and Danny joined the parts department in Muir of Ord. We caught up with a few of our newest recruits and asked some questions to get to know a bit about themselves and their previous experience.
