We deliver superior value and performance through the professionalism and pride of our people and the effectiveness of our processes.

Delivering For Our Clients

At AJS we believe in building more meaningful relationships with our clients so we can successfully meet their short and long term requirements. Our successful approach to partnering is demonstrated by our long-standing relationships and supported by our flexible approach to meeting our clients’ objectives.

Through partnership working with each individual client we create a bespoke delivery solution that is built around their needs to ensure efficient, effective and sustainable engineering solutions are delivered every time.

We believe that true partnership working means standing by your clients through both the good and challenging times. It is during these times that we have supported our clients by continuing essential services to help keep their customers safe, warm and to keep the lights on.

Apprenticeships Training and Development

At AJS we recognise that our success is built by our people and that they are the foundation for our success. Every member of our team, from front line engineers to customer call handlers, has an essential role to play.

For this reason we are committed to the continuous training and development of our entire workforce so that they are equipped with the necessary skills to reach their full potential. Training is a core principle of our organisation and underpins our commitment to continuous improvement and delivering total compliance for our clients.

Apprenticeship Schemes

 AJS delivers specialist services that requires a suitably qualified and highly skilled workforce. We work closely with industry accredited training bodies and further education colleges, offering modern apprenticeships to produce the highly skilled engineers that will become the future of the industry and our business.

Work Experience

We offer work experience to young people attending schools and colleges in the areas where we work. This gives them a taste of the differing roles within our business including the core trades. We also use the work experience as part of our drive to attract more young women into the trades and to break down barriers that prevent some sectors of society from seeing construction as a suitable career choice.

Inductions

All employees must progress through our mandatory induction process which includes our culture, quality standards and procedures. Topics covered include safety, health & environmental compliance & certification, IT and mobile working solutions, equality & diversity, safeguarding, and our expectations on quality and behaviours. Each induction also covers contract specific requirements and our shared client objectives.

Toolbox talks

We schedule Toolbox Talks regularly to update all site based staff on a range of matters from health & safety to continuous improvement. These allow us to deal with individual issues at site level, to client led operational updates, right through to wider sector issues such as changes in legislation. Our Toolbox Talks can also be delivered remotely to our mobile teams of engineers who may not be able to make it to each session

Training facilities

We have a fully equipped modern training facility at our head office which caters for classroom based learning and for hands on trades and skills updates. Our excellent facilities are also made available to our supply chain and our clients.

Quality Management

Our long-standing relationships with our clients are built on our reputation for delivering high standards of quality, value and customer service.

All our engineers are qualified to industry standards for their trade. Our supervisors and managers hold professional qualifications underpinned by years of experience.

We are accredited to the appropriate trade and professional organisations that develop and monitor performance standards for the specialist trade disciplines we offer.

Quality Control

Our ISO9001 certified Quality Management System ensures that a quality outcome is inbuilt to all our systems and processes. Every project and programme has a bespoke quality plan to ensure we meet our high standards every time.

This is reinforced by our rigorous monitoring of every stage through to completion and post inspection, enabling us to deliver total regulatory compliance and customer satisfaction for our clients.

Robust document management is integral to quality and compliance which is why our teams have access to the latest technology to complete, process, audit and store certification that is fully industry compliant

Our quality management processes ensure we are constantly learning and improving our offering to clients.

Health and Safety

The safety and health of everyone impacted by our operations is our priority. We operate a strong and effective Health and Safety culture which is evidenced by our excellent record in this key area.

Safety and health is central to our mandatory induction processes and no one can start work with us until they have successfully completed this module. Every new site has a bespoke safety induction which is supported by continuous monitoring to ensure safe working practices are being applied.

We invest heavily in safety through personnel training, processes and tools. We have created an environment that empowers people to place their personal safety and that of their colleagues and our clients above all other priorities.

Environment

Recognising the impact of our works on the environment, we are tackling issues such as energy use, carbon emissions and waste reduction head on. Almost all of our waste is re-used or re-cycled and we are always looking to go further to meet our carbon neutral target.

Meeting our responsibilities

We all have a responsibility for improving the environmental future of the planet. AJS is committed to working with our employees, clients and supply chain to deliver on this. We examine every function within the business to seek improvements in how we do things that will help reduce the environmental impact on the planet.

CARBON NEUTRAL

We are committed to being carbon neutral and are a long way towards achieving this without the need for carbon offsetting. In doing so we are working with clients to deliver the most energy efficient installations and retrofits available.

Where possible we purchase materials that have been assembled in the UK to minimise miles travelled. We logistically schedule our PPM programmes to cut travel times and reduce vehicle usage.

We have fitted electric vehicle charging facilities at our offices and are in the process of moving to an all-electric fleet of vans once the charging network has expanded to meet our transport requirements.

Waste reduction and recycling

AJS has developed a waste management plan which has helped divert more than 99% of our site waste from landfill through measures which include:

Segregating waste materials to maximise opportunities for recycling.
Purchasing materials that are 100% recyclable with minimum packaging.
Reusing materials from old installations to maintain older client systems with parts that are no longer being made.
Refurbishing power tools and batteries to extend their life.

Equality and diversity

At AJS we promote diversity throughout our workforce with opportunities for all. We reflect the communities that we work in through our diverse and inclusive culture.

Through our social value initiatives we help people from all backgrounds to improve their employment opportunities. Many of the projects we deliver improve the lives of residents with mobility issues by providing bespoke access solutions.

We recognise that as a responsible employer, we have a part to play in creating environments and communities that appreciate, accommodate and celebrate diversity.

Career Opportunities

Working for AJS is challenging yet immensely rewarding which is demonstrated through our very high staff retention rates with low turnover. We are committed to staff development and training that meets the ever changing needs of the sector whilst giving our employees a clear route to career progression.

Our success is down to the skill, experience and effort of our workforce and this has delivered sustainable growth to or business over the past number of years.
