Careers Section. Addition to our web page

Hi Everyone           Another blog from Norman РNovember 2019.

Just to bring to your attention that we have added another section to our web page.

At the far right end (nothing political intended) of the menu bar you will now see the new section. It is labelled “Careers”.¬† Click on it and you will find a copy of the job advert we have just placed on “INDEED”.

This is a new idea to us and we hope, at a later date, to add some comments/ideas from existing staff – could be interesting. Of course we will be completely unbiased and only publish the good ones.

Please keep an eye on this new part of our site (as well as all the rest) as it might change quite quickly.

Cheers for now.

Norman

ISO 9001:2015 QMS certification.

Hi Readers,

Nearly Easter …… hope you have a good break.¬† Easter always signals that winter is over and better weather (hopefully) is on the way.

I¬†have some great news to pass on.¬† Our QMS (quality management system) certification was due for renewal, so we took the bull by the horns and went for the new, latest version viz: ISO 9001: 2015.¬† It took quite a lot of work, by all concerned, because the “thinking” now has a different emphasis, but we did it.¬† We are now fully certificated to ISO 9001:2015, as from early this month.

Copies of our new certificate, either “hard” or digital, are now available to our customers.

As Matt has now moved on to pastures new (Good Luck Matt), I will be one of the contact points.  Please feel free to contact me.

Cheers for now

Regards

No Snake Silicone Oil Salesman – Allcocks Out and About in Manchester

Over the past few months, the Sales team at J.Allcock and Sons have been attending events in Manchester.

Firstly, Myself and our MD, Andrew Rushton, attended a Vistage Open day. With a lecture given by one of the masters of sales, Lars Tewes, I certainly learnt a lot about how not only are we here to help solve issues our clients may be facing, but we are also here to help spot problems or issues that may not be obvious to the client and may arise in the future. It was an extremely informative and fun day and I personally hope to put some of the lessons into practice.

I also appeared as a guest at a graduate careers event at the University of Manchester, giving advice to students on how to get into the world of work. It was good to try and help students who are in a position I was in not so many years ago to try and make the most of their time at University (maybe avoid some of the mistakes your author made!)

We might be often out of the office meeting clients, but it’s also good to try and give back to the local community and devote time to personal development. By attending lectures and speeches, we hope to be able to deliver a more streamlined and dedicated service to our clientèle, react to sudden changes in a situation more constructively and continue to provide the excellence and personal focus J. Allcock and Sons is known for.
