Rob Cooper, Roofing Manager at Burlington Stone, lives in Askam

After beginning his career as an apprentice at Burlington Stone, Rob has used his own experience to make the scheme more exciting for current apprentices.


Rob is involved in rugby in the region and has always loved the outdoor lifestyle.

“I played rugby for a lot of years at Askam, and I’m involved with coaching children as well,” he said. “In my spare time, I also enjoy gardening work and being outside. I’ve got a farming background in the family so I have an interest in that.

“I also spend time walking, so Cumbria is the perfect place for all my hobbies and my career.”
