Specialist Joinery Group welcomes new Apprentices

Specialist Joinery Group has been providing joinery apprenticeship programmes since 1988. This investment has created a unique culture of knowledge sharing and innovation, enabling the company to further promote its distinct brand of elite joinery.

Apprentices are the life and blood of the company and we believe here at Specialist they are the way forward. “Many former Specialist Joinery group apprentices can now be found in strategic management roles; our motto is look after your staff and they will look after your customers”.

This month we welcomed a new cohort of apprentices and we are delighted they are joining the Specialist Family.

‘We Care’ – World Mental Health Day

Tomorrow is World Mental Health Day.

This year World Mental Health Day is more important than ever. The months of lockdown and the difficult times that we are going through has had a huge impact on us all. Prioritising our mental health has never been more important.

At Specialist Joinery Group, we care. Mental health awareness is so important to our employees and our community. Some of the actions we take to promote mental health awareness include:


· We have 5 in-house Mental Health First Aiders, who can provide mental health advice and support to our employees.
· We work with an external company, CCO who offers emotional and mental support to all Specialist employees and their families. Providing everyone with helpful hints, tips and training.

In the last number of years, we have raised money for a number of charities that offer mental health support to the people in our community and further afield, including; The Olive Branch, S.T.E.P.S. and All Lives are Precious.

We care about you. We are here for you. It’s good to talk.

Air Ambulance Northern Ireland Donation

Air Ambulance NI is a fantastic local charity providing emergency medical service for the people of Northern Ireland. It provides outstanding critical care when and where it is needed the most.

Following his recent 40th birthday, our Managing Director, Ciaran O’Hagan is donating £2000 to this wonderful charity.

Ciaran would like to thank staff, customers and friends for all the well wishes and kindness shown. Although Ciaran’s preference would be to thank everyone in person, we will have to suffice with virtual thanks with the restrictions in place.
