We are always interested to hear from good clock makers and watchmakers to come and join us in Stamford. You should either hold clock making qualifications (HND, BTEC, or BHI) OR have minimum five years experience and references.
We are located in a beautiful building in a prime location with lovely colleagues. There is an interesting variety of work (predominantly repair of interesting antique clocks, mostly French and English).
Contact us for more information.
Robina Hill FRSA MIoD took over as Managing Director in 2011. With a wealth of experience having managed, taught and coached in a wide variety of enterprises, both service and manufacturing and both large and small, we are hugely fortunate to have her at the helm.
Robert Loomes FBHI FRSA, started work with his father, Brian Loomes, BA, FSG, Hon FBHI, in 1987. He learnt about clock and watchmaking with the help and tuition of some of the best – and kindest – restorers in Yorkshire.
On completing a five year apprenticeship with his father, Robert opened the Stamford workshops in 1993. He then qualified by examination as a professional Member of the British Horological Institute. In 2015 Robert was made an Emeritus Fellow of the institute for his research work on watchmaking.
Robert has been a consultant to the BBC since 1997 and has appeared on numerous radio BBC and independent television programmes, most recently as the “host” of the Institute for a BBC visit.
He is a member of the British Watch and Clockmakers’ Guild: the professional organisation for those employed in horology. If watches or clocks are the main source of your income, you should join. The fees are small and the work the Guild does invaluable.
Robert has served on the councils of both the British Watch and Clockmakers’ Guild and the British Horological Institute.
Robert is also a Fellow of the RSA, properly known as The Royal Society for the encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce.
