J P Hildreth has been established as an Employee Ownership Trust (EOT). This means that the business is owned by an independent trust which is tasked to act in the best interest of the employees.

There are many incredible benefits of this type of structure for both our employees and our customers. A few of the most significant employee benefits are listed below (subject to contract conditions):

  • The long-term future and independence of JPH is secure.
  • The structure demands an active employee representation and involvement through to the operating board.
  • All employees are beneficiaries of the trust and business profits are re-invested and/or shared equitably among the employees (part of profit share payments are made free from income tax).

Ultimately, all of us employed here at J P Hildreth have an equitable stake in the future and success of the business. If this sounds like something you would love to be a part of then we would like to hear from you!
