Things to consider

James Development Co Ltd is a small family firm where employees are expected to work hard and take responsibility for planning their workload. Candidates intent on searching Google for concert tickets during work hours should look elsewhere.

The emphasis here is on a family business and consequently, employees and subcontractors tend to become part of the "business family" with most working for James Development Co Ltd for many, many years - the record being almost 60 years continuous employment.
