Rigby to recruit three new gunsmiths march 2016

John Rigby & Co. has announced that it is recruiting three new staff members to its gunmaking team to help meet increased demand for its award-winning range of rifles and shotguns.

The London firm has seen an upsurge in orders following a record 12 months, which included the sale of its Jim Corbett commemorative London Best for an unprecedented $250,000 at Safari Club International Convention, the completion of the first new Rigby Rising Bite double rifle in 84 years, and the introduction of three new models in its best selling Big Game range.

Rigby is now looking for an addional actioner, finisher and stocker to join its talented team. Applicants should have experience in the manufacture of best guns; a comprehensive knowledge of building high qualify bolt-action rifles, double rifles, and shotguns; the ability to work as part of a passionate team; and a thirst to be at the top of the gunmaking trade.

The full-time roles will be based at the firm’s purpose-built headquarters in South London.

Managing Director Marc Newton commented: “We currently have a full order book and, with interest from around the world increasing all the time, we have decided to up our production capability by recruiting three more specialist gunsmiths. Like our current team, applicants must be driven to work to the very highest standard. They must be committed to being part of the Rigby ethos, and to ensuring that the Rigby name continues to be a byword for quality workmanship.”
