People Development High On Agenda At JWS

This month sees JWS Waste’s ongoing commitment and investment in its personnel development.


Staff training commitment from JWS Waste to improve services and proffessional reliability for our customers

Following an extensive appraisal & review process the plan has been agreed which sets out the training and development of the staff over the next 12 months.

This involves a significant investment for JWS but ongoing development of our people remains a high priority within the business. Whether it be through apprenticeships or ongoing staff training JWS Waste are proud to have a very high staff retention rate

A few highlights of the training and development released so far include:

Tim Andrew is due to complete his Certificate of Professional Competence for Combined Freight National & International Road Haulage this month, this is a requirement of his role and this is a certification already held by Robin Tweedale, Peter Andrew & Gordon MacDougall.

Jade Saleh, Kelly Walsh & Gordon MacDougall are undertaking the Certificate of Ongoing Technical Competence in March.

Adam, our Traffic Office Apprentice has broadened his apprenticeship experience to include Trade Waste and is now hands on working our Dry Mixed Recycling route. He continues to be trained and spends a day a week in the traffic office. This range of experience will lead him onto a Logistics/Operations Level 2 Certificate.

James, our Accounts Department Apprentice has proved to be a real asset to the team, he has now passed his ICT exam and continues his studies alongside his work placement here, this will lead him to achieve the Advanced Apprenticeship in Business Administration within the next four months.

This is only a snapshot of the training and development happening at JWS Waste as our focus on people and their development continues.
