How we recruit great employees

We are always on the lookout for talented individuals, so thank you for taking the time to look at our careers pages. All applications and enquiries we receive are important to us. Every request to join our team is treated with all consideration, either against a current specific vacancy or to be kept on our database of candidates with skills that are relevant to us.

We appreciate any change in role can be both exciting and daunting at the same time which is why we thought it would be useful to explain our recruitment process step-by-step.

"My current position as continuous improvement engineer involves improving efficiency and quality and also reducing cost. This often requires close communication and teamwork between all departments which is made easier due to a companywide culture of improvement and a desire to supply our customers with a world class service"

- James Wykes

Step 1 - Application

For advertised positions, please email

We will then ask you to complete an application form and submit this together with an up to date copy of your CV. You will hear from us further within 5 days of the closing date of the advertised position.

For more general enquiries, or if you don’t see a position that meets your current needs but would like to register your interest in future vacancies, please e-mail us at, and one of our recruitment team will be in touch as soon as they can to help answer your questions.

Step 2 – First Interview

If your application for a position is successful, we will invite you to join us for a first interview. Depending on the position you are applying for, this could consist of a telephone interview, video conference call, submission of a video clip or a direct face to face interview. During the process you also will be expected to undergo basic literacy, numeracy and accuracy tests together with some other practical and visual tests. We will inform you at the end of the first interview when to expect feedback and the details of the next part of the process.

"After 30 years working in the electronics manufacturing industry, I joined JJS late in 2014 and, although it is still early days, I am thoroughly enjoying my experience here. I have found the team most welcoming in all areas and without exception have been greeted with a “can-do” attitude when I’ve been in need of help."

- Steve Welsh

Step 3 – Second Interview

If you are successful at the first stage, we will invite you back for a second interview where you will meet different members of the team. You would be expected to undergo relevant tests for the role such as sample assembly work, group problem solving tasks, or presentations. In addition to these we would expect to hold further face to face meetings with you and where possible give you a tour of our manufacturing facility. For some of our production roles, it may be relevant for screening purposes to carry out some of the skills tests at the first interview.

We will inform you again at the end of the second interview when to expect feedback from us.

Step 4 – Welcome to the team

The recruitment process is only part of your journey with us. If successful, we will work with you on creating your induction programme to ensure that we help build the foundations of your success with us. And it doesn’t stop there; we will be working with you on your continuous performance development and ensuring that your journey with us continues to be fulfilling and rewarding.

If you have a proven track record within the Electronic Manufacturing Services sector or can demonstrate to us the skills you have can help continue to grow our expanding business, we would love to hear from you.
