VEKA plc significant jobs boost for Burnley

July 28, 2023

VEKA plc, the globally renowned manufacturer of high-quality uPVC profiles based in Burnley, today announced a significant job boost for the town, creating 70 new roles across its extrusion, lamination, warehouse, and transport departments.  

“Our excitement at introducing these opportunities reflects VEKA’s dedication to creating employment in Burnley and contributing to our local community,” states Sally Blades, HR Director at VEKA.

VEKA’s expansion follows the successful acquisition of major new customers, anticipated to boost the company’s turnover by around 25%. This marks a positive stride for VEKA and Burnley’s economy, supporting job security and additional employment prospects.

“The upsurge in VEKA’s growth reflects the hard work of our team and the trust our customers, old and new, place in us,” adds Sally. “We’re committed to fostering careers, supporting families, and contributing to the region’s economy by cultivating talent, and providing those who want, with growth opportunities.” 

The new positions should appeal to a wide range of people, whether experienced workers or those just starting their careers. VEKA’s workforce expansion aims to reinforce its outstanding team and maintain its industry leadership. 

Earlier this year, VEKA was named one of the UK’s ‘Great Places to Work’ by the Global Authority on Workplace Culture. 

“This accolade was a proud moment for VEKA,” states Sally. “It is a testament to the dynamic, supportive work environment we offer, underpinned by our commitment to training and the progression opportunities available.” 

VEKA is encouraging potential applicants to visit its careers page to view and apply for the current vacancies:
