Life at JM is…
Our vision is clear: to create a cleaner and healthier world. Our people have the same sense of purpose; they’re inspired by the real impact their work has on society and the planet, whether that means reducing pollution, relieving pain, restoring hearing or boosting crops.
We recognise the power of diversity to spark new ideas and create new ways of working, and are committed to giving everyone everywhere the same opportunities to excel.
What we do is grounded in the very latest science and technology. We’re at the forefront of new developments, whether that means more efficient battery technologies, longer lasting autocatalysts or efficient industrial processes. Our people are excited by the buzz of new developments, always striving for better.
We are proud of our open and welcoming culture. As we continue to grow, we strive to retain the personal touch. JM is a place for anyone to succeed and enjoy their working life.
Benefits and Rewards
Our people are the best at what they do, and it’s only through their hard work and dedication that we’ll ensure the next 200 years of JM are successful. That’s why we’ve developed a comprehensive reward programme for our employees and their families.
We make sure salaries are fair, competitive and aligned to your role, experience and responsibilities. You’ll have regular reviews to ensure your reward reflects your performance and contribution. Employees may also be eligible to participate in an annual incentive plan, so you may receive a bonus each year, dependent on the financial performance of JM and your own personal performance.
We know financial stability is important, so we’ll support you with your saving goals. We offer different saving plans, depending on the country, all designed to help employees finance their life and plan for the future. Some examples of the plans we offer include:
- retirement savings
- share incentive plans
- individual savings accounts
- house saving funds.
Our people’s health and safety is our biggest priority; we’re committed to giving you and your family a healthy, protected and balanced life. The range of wellbeing benefits we offer in each location is carefully selected, and could include:
- medical insurance
- health assessments
- life and disability insurance
- health programmes (for example a tobacco cessation plan)
- confidential helpline and counselling services.
Beyond work hours, we want to help you enjoy your life and free time, so in each country we have benefits to help you do just that, which could include, for example:
- flexible holiday
- fitness and retailer discounts
- tuition reimbursement
- commuter allowances and loans.
Your package will be discussed with you throughout the recruitment process. Your local HR team will share with you the benefits that you will receive in your country, as well as the necessary forms and details for our online benefits system to ensure you can start to enjoy your JM benefits immediately after you join the team.
