Communities

WJM undertake work throughout the province and believe it is important to employ and train local talent to serve their communities.  We currently work with a company called Impact Training recruiting young people form local communities to give them the chance to develop a career with WJM.   Training for Success is designed to support the objectives of the Skills Strategy for Northern Ireland ‘Success through Skills – Transforming Futures’, by providing training to enable participants to develop relevant occupational and employability skills while addressing any Essential Skills barriers and addressing personal and social development needs.

TUPE

WJM have accommodated numerous TUPE exercises when taking on new contracts.  TUPE is a government directive that protects the interests of employees whose business is being transferred to another business.  By accommodating this directive it ensures that when we take on new contracts, employees that had worked on that same contract but with a different employer will not get displaced or lose their position.  WJM find this an excellent scheme to be a part of as it ensures local people keep their jobs and get to serve their own communities.

Charity

A main focus at WJM is to encourage and support charitable organisations in and outside of the company.

Movember

Every Year WJM Building Services supports staff in raising money for Movember.  Movember is a charity set up to raise awareness of prostate cancer and men’s mental health.   The money raised goes towards researching and developing treatments to help prevent and cure cancer.  This is a tradition that WJM will continue to support.

Raising Money through Marathon’s

WJM Building Services took part in the Belfast City Marathon Team event in 2012 to raise money for Eyrie (Eagle Project), a children’s youth club for children with Autism and their families.

WJM Director’s Mark Magee and Michael McDowell also took part in this event raising further money for this charity.

Michael McDowell completed previous marathon’s in Belfast 2009 and 2011.  This year he completed the London Marathon raising £2,800 for the British Heart Foundation.

In 2015 Michael also completed a cycle ride in Tenerife for Tiny Life, which is a premature baby charity set up in Northern Ireland.

Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice

In memory of the late Billy Meikle (Company Founder), WJM held their first ever “Wear a Christmas Jumper to Work Day”.  All money raised was given as a donation to the Northern Ireland Children’s Hospice, a charity dearly thought of by Billy. Click here to see more photos!
