Thomas Johnstone | The 5% Club

Our People are and always will be our first core value. As part of our 155th anniversary celebrations, we are highlighting some of our amazing people who have contributed to TJL becoming the business we are today.

We support our employees via our internal training scheme and help them to develop the knowledge, skills and experience they need to achieve their professional goals and objectives.


We invest in the next generation of quality tradespeople by offering a number of apprenticeships each year. We employ apprentices in a number of trades including Joinery, Machining, Electrical, Painting & Decorating. Our apprentices all benefit from mentoring and support from our experienced site teams, comprehensive training and practical work experience while completing their apprenticeship.

The 5% Club

The goal of The 5% Club is to increase the employment and career prospects of today’s youth and equip the UK with the skilled workforce it needs to safeguard Britain’s economy. We share in this vision and are investing in the future of our company through apprenticeships, trainee positions and a full and continuous programme of training and re-training for our employees.

We have signed the 5% Charter this year, our 155th anniversary, to show our commitment to helping our country, company and people grow. You can read more about The 5% Club on their website.
