Culture

With over 100 people at our Lutterworth site and in excess of 350 across the group, we are a relatively large business; however, we pride ourselves on still being friendly and approachable with the majority of staff knowing each other on a personal basis. We feel strongly that we can offer opportunities to those who want them without becoming impersonal - and here's why:

  • We have no private offices, so managers and directors are visible and available to talk to staff any time
  • We provide daily, weekly and monthly updates about our business, covering everything from our 5-year strategy to the allocation of car parking spaces
  • We actively encourage staff to tell us what they think about JJS as an employer and our business in general through ‘listening days’
  • We strongly believe in hiring the right people and training them to do a job well

Benefits

Many of our staff enjoy flexible working arrangements allowing them to vary their start and finish times, and take advantage of an earlier finish on some Fridays. In addition to market-aligned levels of pay, annual leave and maternity/paternity allowances, we also offer:

  • A contributory pension scheme
  • 20 days sick pay
  • Additional annual leave entitlement based on length of service
  • Discounted gym membership
  • Staff appraisals at least once per year and an annual pay review

Training and Development

We provide comprehensive on the job training and personal development programmes. We also offer staff the opportunity and funding for work-related study and qualifications.

We have been running Graduate and Apprentice schemes for many years, and some of our most valued and senior employees joined us via such schemes.

"I have been a member of the Logistics team for over 6 years and during this time I have undergone various training including a 2 year management apprenticeship and CILT Level 3 in Logistics and Transport. Personal development has been paramount within the logistics team and when training opportunities arise they are well received by the whole of my team"

Location

We are located in the centre of Lutterworth. If you live in Lutterworth it is a maximum 5 min drive, 10 min on a bike, or 25 min walk. Our proximity to the M1, M6, A5 etc. mean the following towns are all within 30 minutes by car, Rugby, Hinckley, Mkt Harborough, Nuneaton, Atherstone, Broughton Astley, Groby etc. Larger towns/cities, such as Coventry, Birmingham, Northampton and Nottingham, are 45 mins or less away.

The site is within easy walking distance of supermarkets, cafes and other shops, making it a very convenient place for lunch or after work shopping.

Working Environment

Our production and logistics areas are clean and quiet, most of the manual work is not physically demanding and is suitable for people of all ages and genders. Whilst we do demand high standards of quality and output the atmosphere is generally relaxed.

Our offices are modern open-plan and well equipped with the latest IT and office technology. Staff may also get the opportunity to work occasionally at our site in the Czech Republic, if they wish.

Social

Whatever your interests, there’s likely to be a sports or social group that you can get involved with; from drama and theatre trips to regular Curry Club meetings. And for those looking for something more active, a number of our staff compete in local 5 a-side football matches, swimming competitions, golf tournaments and even Tough Mudder!
