Investing in our Future

Gregor Ball compressed

Following successful completion of a 6 month Jet Programme (Job Education Training) during his fourth year at Holy Rood High School, Gregor Ball becomes the latest member of our manufacturing team, starting his joinery apprenticeship with SJS today. We are delighted to welcome Gregor into our business and wish him every success as he sets out on his new career. As our growth continues we are committed to developing new talent and Gregor is the second apprentice taken on by SJS this year with a further apprentice due to commence early July 15. SJS are continuing our apprenticeship development programme with these apprentices replacing two fourth year apprentices who have now taken up full time positions after successful completion of their training.

Loretto School Golf Academy – Pupil visit


Loretto pupils enjoying a tour of our Golf academy site, led by SJS Managing Director Craig Murie as the project nears completion. This educational visit was proposed by SJS as part of our commitment to give something back to the school on our appointment as main contractor for this prestigious project.

“Thank you so much for giving up your precious time with the project to give us such an interesting and educational tour.  We particularly enjoyed seeing the scale of the project and how the centre is all coming together and look forward to seeing it in the final stages when it finally opens for golf.  It was a very educational talk and we learned a lot about how much happens in construction.” – Emma Karolyi and all of 7k
