Potential for personal development/promotion
At Muntons there is a diverse range of job types from process control through to office administration, engineering and laboratory analysis. Muntons pride themselves in helping with personal and professional development and vocational training – they see career development and succession planning as key strategies for the continued success of their company.
So staff are actively encouraged, through their performance development review process, to identify training needs and explore their career aspirations. As long as the training need is relevant to their job, Muntons will seriously consider assisting wherever possible. There are sometimes secondment opportunities which allow employees to experience new jobs and learn new skills, perhaps on a temporary basis, which may well prove useful later as their career progresses.
Over the past few years, and in a wide range of job areas, Muntons staff have completed training at all levels of the learning spectrum, from basic level 1 learning through to a full doctorate at level 8.
As Muntons is a food manufacturing plant, all of their people have completed training and hold the equivalent of the basic food hygiene certificate. They also receive full fire safety training and are offered first aid training too.
Career progression is important for both the individual and the company. As staff increase in competency, experience and qualification so it makes sense to find positions that make best use of these skills. The individual faces new challenges which stimulates their desire to succeed and the company can fill the slots created for example through retirement.
