Join a company

As an industry leader and a fast moving company that constantly challenges the rules, we want to attract the best people - people with the right attitude, imagination and vision. Gilo Industries Group is looking for talented and motivated people to help us build a great company and solve challenging aerospace engineering problems.

To join our tribe is a unique experience, and unlike any job you might have previously undertaken. It will be inspirational. It will be challenging. And it will be immensely rewarding. So expect us to push you and challenge your assumptions like never before. We will believe in you, give you the skills you need to develop (in ways that go beyond traditional training courses), and will ensure that you have a career that's going places. In return, we expect you to deliver, constantly challenge in all parts of the company and be solution-oriented. Be part of a tribe that drives this company forward. That's the deal.

Our community
is our tribe

tribe

/trʌɪb/

noun
1. a social division in a traditional society consisting of a community linked by social and economic ties, with a common culture, typically having a recognised leader.

Just as the traditional Nigerian proverb says: “It takes a whole village to raise a child”, so too does it take a whole community to build a company. Our business is our community. Our community is our tribe. And our tribe is our network of staff, suppliers, partners and customers. It is not a one-man brand. We work hard at maintaining an environment of opportunity for all. From the engineer, the quality technician, to the cnc operator; we acknowledge that each member of our tribe is integral to the whole.

As a company, we try to weave our ideology around such traditions of partnership, respect and belonging. We are a hub for creative and adventurous ideas, designers, craftsmen and women, innovative thinkers and go-getters. We are working to build a tribe of like-minded people who support this culture of creating, sharing, and being stoked at what we can achieve. As a business we have the opportunity to support and encourage people and companies that align with our vision and ideology. So that is what we are doing.

Where culture thrives,
passion follows

A lot of companies talk about culture - their awesome office, fun events and great perks. While we offer those things, we view culture differently. We believe it's about rallying people who enjoy each other's company and respect each other's skill. It's about working alongside people you rely on to spar with you intellectually one moment, then grab a beer with you the next. At Gilo Industries Group, we all work together to make sure our company is a place where we can create something awesome while having fun. It's important for us to build a tribe that fosters growth, creativity, and above all nurtures individual's well-being.

Tribal Spirit


Close relationships, humility and a thirst for team success makes our corporate style unique. Behind the drive for excellence is a spirit of goodwill in which personal achievement is for the benefit of Group progress, and where everyone shows commitment and passion, depth and lightness in all that they do.

Equilibrium


We look to enrich our tribe with multi-talented characters who are both rational and emotional beings and who can demonstrate an entrepreneurial but practical nature. They are able to operate as successfully in manual tasks as they do in a creative role. They have their feet on the ground but their head in the stars!

Enrichment


Learning, cultivating one's curiosity and capacity to be amazed, innovating and never ceasing to push the boundaries of excellence are all crucial aspects of each individual's development, and makes up the tribe's principle of continuous learning and sharing of knowledge. Such is the artisan who constantly seeks to perfect his technique, to become the master of his tools and material, and to discipline his hand to achieve perfection every time.

Truly somewhere
special to work & live

Gilo Industries Group HQ is located just outside the picturesque hilltop town of Shaftesbury in Dorset. With miles of sandy beaches, some of the best weather in the UK and the longest life expectancy in Britain, Dorset makes for a happy home. And along with our picture postcard villages, the vibrant towns of Bournemouth, Poole, Dorchester and Weymouth are bursting with places to eat, drink, shop and party. With over half the county designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, no one can deny that Dorset is truly somewhere special to work and live.

Meet your fellow
tribe members

Some creative, some strategic and others technical but we are all extremely friendly and welcoming; the type of team you'd take home to meet Mum. Our people are awesome and although we work hard, the laughs are endless. Does this sound like a tribe you'd thrive in?
