Who are we?
Here at Johnstons of Elgin we are committed to reducing our environmental impact and making sure that we treat our employees, suppliers and partners in a positive and responsible way. We aren’t doing this because we believe that all modern businesses should (though it would be disingenuous not to acknowledge that lightening a company’s social and environmental footprint makes good economic and business sense in the world we now live in). We’re doing it because it is a philosophy that has been deeply ingrained in our company’s culture since its founding over 200 years ago. Given this heritage, we thought it was time we shouted a little louder about the things we’re doing right and tried to pinpoint those areas in which improvements can still be made.
We know that our most valuable asset is the people who work with us. Across the business we employ more than 700 people, and provide a good range of benefits as well as clear career progression routes. We recognise that people are vital to our future, and we want you to share in our success by offering you the opportunity to develop a career with us.
Training and Development
Johnstons of Elgin has been one of the largest independent employers in the Elgin area since the mid-1800s and we are committed to retaining this position. All our employees are valued members of the Johnstons of Elgin team. We are an equal opportunities employer and support our staff with personal and professional training. We are especially concerned with the preservation of traditional craft skills and do our utmost to ensure the conservation of these special, and increasingly rare, skills. We also operate an employee awards scheme and social events programme, and produce an in-house magazine for our employees.
