Ulster University Jordanstown – Student Visit

Ulster University Jordanstown – Student Visit

In April a group of students from Ulster University Jordanstown visited Ryobi. The visit was hosted by Graham Coulter, HSE Manager, who gave a presentation about the company, followed by a plant tour, with assistance from Steven Tait, HSE Officer.

The students were particularly interested in finding out about the design process within Ryobi as they are currently studying a module called Design and Industry 2 which aims to show students how manufacturing processes and design are integrated in the commercial world.

Ryobi would be delighted to facilitate similar visits from other educational establishments. Please contact the Human Resources team for further details.

Charity Fundraising through Payroll Giving

Marie Curie Charity Scheme

In March Marie Curie representatives visited Ryobi Aluminium Casting UK Ltd for the Great Daffodil Appeal to raise awareness of the charity scheme and give employees information on how they could help support families across Northern Ireland.

What’s great about Marie Curie Nurses

* Every minute of every day someone is being cared for by a Marie Curie Nurse
* They provide care and support for all terminal illnesses
* They care for almost half of all cancer patients who die at home
* They work across the UK – from the smallest village or town to our biggest cities
* They’re there for patients and carers at what can be the most stressful and exhausting time of their lives

Representatives attended our site over 3 consecutive Thursdays and we are delighted to say that 51 employees have joined the charity scheme which means that a quarter of our staff now support Marie Curie through payroll giving.

Alison Wilson, Regular Giving Manager NI, for Marie Curie said, “A huge thank you to the staff of Ryobi Aluminium Casting for raising a fantastic £14,000 for Marie Curie over 10 years from 2007. This donation has helped many families throughout Northern Ireland.”
