Are you right for us – are we right for you?
An exciting opportunity with a values-led, forward thinking company.

The Rooflight Company is not your run-of-the mill organisation. We are open and communicate clearly and regularly with everyone. We recognise and value the strengths each person brings to the team. We continuously challenge the norm to make improvements. We implement change. This has been endorsed by our recent WOBA award as 2020 Employer of the Year.

As an employee-owned business our vision is to be a Force for Good through our three Guiding Principles - Values-led Culture, Innovation and Long-term Sustainability.  These principles guide future Trustees, Co-owners, the Co-owner Council, and the Company Directors in their decision making and activities.

With innovation, we strongly encourage new ideas and market-led thinking to design and make rooflights for the architectural building product market that are novel, elegant, and useful, continually balancing form and function.

Long-term sustainability in terms of growth and the environment means that we do not accept quick fixes or unsustainable solutions. We believe it is our responsibility to play our part in mitigating climate change and we have an ambitious target of achieving zero waste to landfill and being carbon neutral by 2024.

There are four values within our Values-led Culture – Integrity, Care, Empowered and Unity, each with specific behaviours associated with those values.  It creates an atmosphere where personal growth is encouraged, nurtured, and recognised.

Candidates must be able to demonstrate that they are aligned with our company vision and values and adopt the following behaviours in their dealings with our employees, customers, and suppliers:


  • We give and receive honest and constructive feedback.
  • We hold ourselves and each other accountable for our words and actions.
  • We don’t blame, we learn and grow.


  • We work to the best of our ability and take pride in our work.
  • We continuously work in the best interests of our community and our environment.
  • We show active interest in others’ wellbeing and treat them with respect and compassion.
