Lewis Gorford - Senior Electronics Engineer, employed by Analox since September 2013
I have worked in the Analox R&D team for over 5 years and I still enjoy my job. The people I work with are talented in their respective fields and usually have a funny or interesting story to tell.
Every project I have worked on has had different challenges, users, applications, operating environments and compliance, keeping me on my toes. I personally like the variety of products and systems Analox offers to so many different industries, always with the sole purpose of keeping people safe.
Designing products or systems for use around the world has given me the occasional opportunity to travel (UK, Poland, Germany & Japan). Meeting the end users and getting an appreciation of the requirements has been excellent and usually leads to a happy customer.
My commute is long (1 hour each way), which is the only downside for me, however car sharing has made this acceptable both financially and socially.
Overall a great place to work.
Mark Hawkins - Production Assembler/Test Operative, employed by Analox since April 2018
I have worked at Analox for almost a year now. When I first started, I was very apprehensive as this is an industry that I have never worked in before. However, from the start, Analox have supported me through my training requirements and I feel I have already made a step towards my preferred career due to being moved from the production department to test. Until now, I have never worked for a company that not only supports your career path, but gives you plenty of other benefits such as getting your birthday off- a personal favourite. I would like to thank Analox for having me and I look forward to staying at Analox for the foreseeable future.
Nathan Stevenson - Electronic/Electrical Engineer, employed by Analox since June 2014
I started at Analox after relocating to the area in June 2014. I enjoy the openness between management and all the employees and the fact that everyone is very friendly. I especially feel welcomed and valued within my personal department (R&D). Analox
Analox have supported my personal plans of getting married, allowing me to leave for appointments and other time critical events. I know that Analox value my knowledge and skills and care about making me a better engineer.
Jack Price - Apprentice Research and Development Technician, employed by Analox since July 2013
I started as a general engineering apprentice and was allowed to experience different roles to see what field I would like to specialise in and Analox were extremely supportive of my decision putting me through the relevant courses and even having mini seminars to reinforce what I had learnt.
I have always loved the relaxed working environment and the personal feel of working in a smaller team, it makes me feel my suggestions are heard and valued.
Becca Dodds - Sales Manager (Asia Pacific, Brazil and Northern Europe), employed by Analox since December 2012
I relocated back to my home town Middlesbrough after working in Richmond for six years. I was looking for a challenging role that gave me the opportunity for international travel, I have definitely found that with Analox. My job is exciting, diverse and I have progressed in position three times. The company have offered excellent training opportunities including a Brazilian Portuguese Language course facilitated by Durham University.
Analox encourage personal development and allow you to work autonomously and there is a real team bond, it is a great place to work and I can see myself staying here for a very long time.
Roberta Sewell - Trainee Accountant, employed by Analox since July 2012
With no experience or knowledge of Accountancy, Analox saw my passion and helped me turn my dream into a reality. Analox has put me through any training that has required me and my career to grow, from professional courses at college to in-house training sessions, they always have time for me. Analox is more than a company, it's a team.
Paul Oliver - Document Manager, employed by Analox since January 1998
"Starting as a Production Technician with Analox back in January 1998 I did assembly and testing of IR sensors and finished instruments. After 11 months I was offered the role of stores supervisor. During my time as stores supervisor I also started producing manufacturing drawings using AutoCAD.
I started my current role in May 2007 as part of the R&D department creating assembly and test procedures and CAD manufacturing drawings for which Analox have supported me with in-house and external training such as Solidworks, a 3D design package. Analox is a close-knit team of people, with a relaxed but professional workplace."
Julie Cole - HR Manager, employed by Analox since February 1996
It’s a great place to work and the people here are like family. I have been here for a lot of years and so have some of the other staff so I have built some worthwhile friendships.
Since I started in 1996 I have seen the company grow and become a fantastic workplace. I have been fortunate with the support I have received, especially from my former manager when I was working in both the Operations and HR department as they helped me transition into my HR role full time, which was a great opportunity and I really enjoy doing it. I’m part of the furniture now, so I don’t intend on leaving anytime soon.
Mark Kirkbride - Senior Production Engineer, employed by Analox since 1995
Personally I think it is a mixture of things. Firstly I think a big chunk of it comes down to how the company treats you as an employee. I have worked at numerous places and if ‘management’ are fair with you and actually listen to ideas that you have instead of the usual “what I say goes” attitude that counts for a lot. Also people trust you to do what they ask and don’t stand over you demanding it. Throw in the chance of progression and decent pay that never goes a miss.
Secondly will be the people that work here. I had the choice of two jobs when I was offered this one, both for more money and one was with a company car, both permanent positions but I liked the place and the people. It was during the telephone interview I thought to myself that I liked the people I was talking to and then when I came down and looked around everyone was nice too.
Julie Brady - Senior Production Technician, employed by Analox since August 1985
Starting as Office Junior with Analox back in August 1985 (then known as Scottish Anglo Environmental Protection Ltd) I looked after all the administration. After returning from maternity leave in 1993 I decided to make a move into the production area, which I continue to work in 28 years later as a Senior Production Technician.
I have learnt and gained many skills throughout my time at Analox having received lots of training. All members of staff and management are helpful and friendly and we all work as one team and that’s the Analox team.
