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