Join a small family business with BIG plans operating just outside Bury town centre. We are in the business of growing our people in order for them to provide unparalleled customer service to our clients. If you want a career rather than a job, you have come to the right place. You will have the distinction of being our first ever Apprentice. You could say that we are learning on the job just like you! Hopefully, we can help each other. Your role will involve supporting our team in delivering a level of customer service unparalleled in our industry. If you enjoy the challenge of helping others in their time of need, this might just be the place for you. Eventually, your role will evolve and expand into serving customers directly. We will support you and help you to grow and achieve along the way. This support will include a workplace mentor, opportunities for further education and development, and recommended reading as you progress throughout your career with us. And that is exactly what we hope to provide you with, a career for life. Read on to find out if our family is right for you.
Why choose us
We are a small but growing family business established in 1995 when we pioneered the Director redundancy industry. Our founder and Managing Director previously worked for the Government department that decides the outcome of Director redundancy claims. She decided to put this knowledge directly to use in helping Directors with their claims. We treat our team-members like family and the successful candidate will become an honorary family member.
Our vision of service excellence best explains our approach to employees, customers and business generally:
“Working together, helping you today for a brighter tomorrow”
Most importantly for you, you will learn a whole new way of doing business known as “lean”. Few employers employ lean thinking and fewer still do it “right”. To us lean “thinking” is a mindset of continual improvement that we impart to our people who then improve our processes in order to maximise customer value, whilst minimising waste. Being such a rare commodity, the ability to “think lean” will set you apart throughout your whole career (which we hope you will spend with us!). We work with a well-known US-based coach from the lean community, so you will have an opportunity to learn about lean from the very best. In time, lean principles and techniques will become second-nature to you, the latter including:
No doubt these terms will be unfamiliar to you. Don’t worry, as long as you are up for a challenge, we will help you to learn, master and even teach them! In short, you will adopt a radically different approach to business that might just change the course of your career and, perhaps, even your life!
How we will help you to grow
One of our core tenets is to grow our business by growing our team-members. We achieve this in the following ways:
