As part of our approach to flexible working, we have also brought our team abroad to ‘work in the sun’ in recent years.
4 Day Work Week
To ensure our team has the best work/life balance possible, we reduced our full-time core working hours for our staff by a fifth from January 2020, from 37.5 hours to 30 hours, with no impact on pay after a two-year-long research project, meaning our teamwork a four day working week but get paid for five days!
Health and Wellbeing
We place great value on the health and well-being of all our people. In addition to a generous company pension scheme, we provide the option of free private health insurance for all employees, which can be extended to cover our families. We also offer free gym membership, cycle-to-work and computer schemes, and lunchtime Pilates to everyone.
We celebrate all our team’s success in helping clients and greatly appreciate client feedback and reward our team for positive responses. A lot of hard work goes into providing the best possible service to our clients and, while we love what we do, we believe it is vital that we also remember to have some fun! We enjoy nights out at sporting events, theatres, and concerts as well as Summer barbecues and a fantastic Christmas party where we have lots of gifts and long service awards.
We love celebrating joyous events in our team’s lives. As well as buns and treats, we also provide weekly fruit baskets for us all to enjoy.
Each year we ask our staff to select a charity for JMK to support throughout the year. We raise money through dress-down days, social events, and sponsored events such as the Belfast Marathon.
Through these measures, we at JMK Solicitors seek to live our core values, make people our priority and make sure that personal injury claims are personal.
