Working with our partners helps us contribute to social, economic and environmental stability and growth at a local and national level.
As an employer, Rossie is one of the largest in Montrose. We recruit with an aim to create and sustain employment opportunities. In addition to this, we focus on developing our staff continuously to maintain our multi-disciplinary workforce. We are a Scottish Qualifications Authority approved organisation, which allows us to utilise our Training Centre for the benefit of our staff. We provide our staff with the appropriate support to gain qualifications, through our Learning Partnership agreement. Our staff have opportunity to attend meetings, seminars and workshops, both internally and externally, helping to promote partnerships and connections while learning.
We offer placements, internships and apprenticeships. These opportunities create skills and training opportunities for those who are studying, looking for work, or looking to gain some experience in their field.
We are an equal opportunities employer, ensuring opportunities are available for all staff regardless of gender, race, disability and all protected characteristics.
We drive innovation in our motivation to continuously grow and improve. Recent advancements within Rossie include our Hair and Beauty Salon – helping gain connections with the local college, and our Dance studio – collaborating with local Dance charities Showcase The Street and Shaper Caper. Some of our young people were performing at the historic opening of the V&A Museum, Dundee.
We invest into our rural surroundings, providing our young people with education and guidance on how to look after our environment. This has resulted in various projects, including the construction of walk and cycle paths, which have positively impacted the local community.
