Jack first joined Rolton Group as a Trainee Technician in the structural team back in 2017. For the past four years, Jack has demonstrated a continuous high level of commitment to work and superb work ethic. He is currently being sponsored to complete two qualifications simultaneously whilst developing his knowledge and skills in REVIT.

Adam Nowak – Project Engineer (Structural)

Beginning his career at Rolton Group as a Graduate Engineer in November 2018 after completing his degree at Wroclaw University of Science and Technology, Adam has been promoted to the position of Project Engineer.

This promotion will progress Adams’s professional development by offering him many opportunities to run and manage the resources for projects within the structural engineering team.

Excited by his new promotion, Adam said: “I am happy to be promoted to my new position. It is a great opportunity to learn new skills and to improve my knowledge. There are many interesting and exciting projects within Rolton that I will be able to support whilst taking on more responsibility.”
Alex Field – Project Engineer (Mechanical and Electrical)

Having successfully completed our graduate programme over the last two years, Alex has now been promoted to Project Engineer in the MEP team. This promotion will enable Alex to take on more responsibility and challenges that leading projects entails, enabling him to develop his skills and knowledge whilst increasing ownership of projects over time.

Alex first joined Rolton Group as a Graduate Engineer in August 2018 after completing his degree in Building Services Engineering & Project Management at Liverpool John Moores University. He has since built on his knowledge and experience over the last two-and-a-half years which has enhanced his overall skill set.

Delighted by his recent promotion, Alex said: “I am very honoured to have been promoted to this new position so early in my career. It has taken a lot of hard work but I look forward to progressing further and growing into the role of a project engineer, which will no doubt push me to become a more independent and competent engineer.”

Chairman, Peter Rolton commented: “Despite the company having to operate from a 100% work from home model since March 2020, the dedication and hard work demonstrated by the individuals across Rolton Group has enabled the company to prosper through such dire times. Therefore, I am delighted to recognise the hard work and achievements of Iain, Ewan, Jack, Alex and Adam through their promotions. Congratulations to all."

We would also like to give a warm welcome to David Bell who recently joined our Peterborough office as Senior Engineer.

Congratulations and well done to all.
