A world of opportunity

MJM Group, which includes specialist glazing company Topglass, has launched ‘The Navigate Programme’.

This is a new initiative across the group to bring together student recruitment and engagement. The programme consists of:junior navigators, aimed at Key Stage Four engagement with schools; work experience navigators; placement navigators; and two student employment initiatives,apprentice navigators and graduate navigators.

Each programme will deliver a specific pathway for the students involved and will allow ongoing engagement with MJM Group throughout the young person’s early career.

Naoimh McAteer, director at MJM Group, said: “We are delighted to announce our plans for The Navigate Programme. Over the course of the next six months we will be recruiting placement students and graduates to join us as part of the first intake of The Navigate Programme in 2020 as well as engaging with young people and promoting the initiatives to second level schools and colleges.”

She continued: “We have opportunities for skilled workers, contract managers, QSs, estimators, designers, accountants and so many more career choices. Each of our businesses is growing and constantly requiring new talent. The Navigate Programme allows us to engage with young people when they are making career decisions, it allows students to see what we do and make an informed decision about a potential career with us.”

Gary Lennon, general manager at Topglass, said: “Over the past year we have already increased employment opportunities at graduate level and offered valuable work experience within our organisation through summer placements. In line with our plans for growth over the coming years we intend to further our intake of new talent with our ability to facilitate student placement increasing substantially. As the Navigate programme develops within Topglass, we hope to work closely with our local community and education bodies to provide an open dialog offering advice and guidance on an exciting array of career opportunities within various disciplines.”
