Culture

With over 120 people at our Lutterworth site and in excess of 400 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

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.
